Hey guys, I thought I'd update you on how my Jailbreak went!
Altogether the event raised £10595.44 with our team raising a total of £714.90!
This is an amazing amount of money and we broke last years record with was £5000. Anyone who donated I want to say a HUGE thank you, we couldn't have done this without you!
Now as for the story of Team NIJE's magnificent journey.
Well we started off really well and first journeyed to Southampton, shorty after we managed to hitch a ride and travelled to Portsmouth where we were hoping to catch a ferry.
Unfortunately we were denied and we ended up stuck in Portsmouth for three hours until a girl decided to give us a lift to Guilford.... This was literally a 10 minute journey away from our university...
We then were stuck in Guilford for a while until we managed to hitch a ride to Reading where we managed to get a free train ride to Taunton! Not only was it a free journey, but a free journey in First Class!
We then retired for the evening and the next morning managed to get a free train journey to Exeter. We then managed to hitch a ride off of David Bowie's Gardener to Oakhampton.
We were then stuck in Oakhampton for the rest of the day (it was literally in the middle of nowhere.)
However, we calculated the miles distance and we travelled as far as if we were travelling to Paris!
So overall it was:
Egham -> Southampton -> Portsmouth -> Guilford -> Reading -> Taunton -> Exeter -> Oakhampton
We all had a lovely time despite the cold weather and many people told us we made their day by dressing up as the Scooby Doo gang!
I'll upload pictures soon and we also have a video in the making, so hopefully that will be out soon!
