      Hi Jo, Yes, travel and accomodation expenses will only be paid for one person. It may be possible to bring a friend to the walk, but their travel and accomodation costs are not part of the prize.

    3. Jo C says:

      Can you confirm – is the prize literally only for one adult, or can they bring a friend as part of the win?

      Thanks!
