Tom and Jane Benyon, and their dog Moses, are walking to raise money for the bereft and suffering in Zimbabwe. The charity, founded by Tom, is called ZANE – Zimbabwe A National Emergency. I joined them for one day of their walk.
I am not at my shiniest at 5.30 am. Last Monday when the alarm went off I was barely alive, every cell in deep sleep.
It was so comfortable … until I was suddenly jangled awake, by the thought of trying to explain to Tom and Jane that I would not be joining them on the walk due to sleepiness.
I set off to find them somewhere in Warwickshire. The car radio warned of a hot day ahead.
The walk along the Cotswold Way has now raised £2,150! All of it will go towards “providing ‘gold standard’ treatment and support for patients and their families”, as part of the Forever Friends Appeal of the Royal United Hospitals Bath.
Your support, and the shade from trees, kept me going as I walked towards Katrina, in Bath – thank you.
