Me and my best mate Debs and Ruby her little terrier cross are going to walk the entire Cornwall Coast Path during September - all 273 miles of it! We are by no means the fittest of people and it will be quite a challenge for us.
To give us the incentive to keep on walking we want to raise as much money as possible for our chosen charities.
THE STROKE ASSOCIATION, CANCER RESEARCH, and THE BRITISH HEART FOUNDATION
The reason why:
Over the past two years I have lost two very close friends. Jayne Stark, who you all know, died so young and so very suddenly of a brain haemorrhage and Nigel Grace, (Paul's best friend), aged just 49 who lost his life in a very tragic accident. My dad has also recently been very seriously ill with Cancer, but thankfully he is now in the early stages of remission.
So in memory of my two dear friends, and to thank all the hospital staff who are helping my dad I have decided to try and raise £1,000 for the above charities.
A webpage has been set up on the "just giving" site if people would like to help us achieve our goal. You can choose which charity you would like to donate to or alternatively you can donate to ELAINE directly if you are not able to go on line or would prefer not to.
(There is also a sponsorship form in the White Hart Pub, if you would prefer to sponsor me this way)
Update - 4th September
We would like thank everyone who has very kindly donated money to us or sponsored us over the past few months. We are now very close to raising our target of £1000!
We are both eagerly awaiting our start date of 6th September and the BIG WALK, that has been months in the planning is now literally just a stone's throw away.
