UPDATE (1:30pm): International walkers Ed Goff (England) and Harrison Badger (Ireland) are closing in on Singleton this afternoon in their attempt to trek from Scone to Sydney to raise much-needed funds for the NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS).
The 21-year-olds are hoping to arrive on the steps of the Sydney Opera House by Friday, February 21, with $20,000 in the kitty.
By 1pm the duo had reached the Maison Dieu industrial precinct.
"We've been feeling so much support as we entered Singleton today and each time we hear a beep or recieve a wave it breaks up the walk and keeps us motivated," Badger told Singleton Argus this afternoon.
"We get really excited every time we hear a beep, we absolutely love it," Goff added.

Mr Badger has resided in the Upper Hunter for the past two years, working at Kitchwin Hills Stud and Scone's Yarraman Park respectively.
His English counterpart has called Australia home for one year and has been working at Yarraman Park for the past three months.
The duo have also asked the Singleton public for accommodation tonight.
