Hello – a walk to support a friend

Tomorrow I am setting off on a walk to raise money for the Royal United Hospital in Bath (RUH Bath). This is to support my friend who has worked at the hospital for several years, but sadly is not well enough to walk with me. I know this is a cause that matters a lot to her.

The hike is going to be way longer than any I’ve done for a while (over 100 miles if I get as far as I plan). It’s in England, and, my family will be joining where they can. Sadly the pandemic has made it too difficult to arrange a bigger walking group.

My aim is to write some postcard style blogs en route to let you know how it’s all going. I’d love your company if you have the time to read. I hope I’ll have the energy to write.

I have set up a JustGiving Page, and I’d be so grateful if you were able to give any amount at all.

These are the ladies (school friends) who inspired me to start walking. This was in 2018. The walk was organised by a friend in Madrid - the rest of us were from UK, South Africa, France and Australia. Sadly we cannot walk together now because of Covid.

    • Thanks so much Tiffany! About to put up a post now. So wish you could all join us. The weather is so similar to what we had in Spain – the fields are green, and the trees hung with blossom.
