Hornsby Shire Council employees Scott Forbes, Tanya Mein, Ryan Stewart and Tim Armstrong have signed up to participate in Sydney’s Oxfam Trailwalker charity event.

They help the community every day by working at Galston's Fagan Park, but now a team of Hornsby Council horticulturalists will be making a difference on a global scale.

Scott Forbes, Tanya Mein, Ryan Stewart and Tim Armstrong have formed a team, called Lady and the Trampers, to join in Sydney's Oxfam Trailwalker charity event.

They are aiming to raise $3000 for Oxfam and are already 68 per cent of the way there.

"We thought instead of spending money on ourselves, wouldn't it be nice this year to raise money for people who really need it," Mr Forbes said.

"To be doing something that makes a difference to the lives of people around the world, it's really motivating."

The Oxfam Trailwalker, on Friday, August 22, requires participants to walk 100 kilometres from Brooklyn to Mosman within 48 hours.

The Lady and the Trampers team are confident they can complete the walk in 32 hours and plan to take only 20-minute breaks during the event.
