5 days to go!

With not very long to go I am beginning to have the first butterflies in my tummy...can I really walk 13 miles in one hit? Can I do it in the middle of the night? and can I do it in the inevitable pouring rain?

If you are not sure what I am referring to, I am taking part in the Salisbury Hospicecare Trust Midnight Walk on 5 June, 13.1 miles from the Leisure Centre to the Hospice and back again.

I am pleased to say that sponsorship and donations are rolling in despite me competing at Coombe Bissett Stores with Carol my colleague, who got me into this in the first place.

People have been extraordinarily generous and my target of raising £100 has I think long been beaten which I am really chuffed about.

Thank you to everyone who has donated or pledged so far and keep'em coming - I am looking forward to the walk and am just hoping for a dry night.

JustGiving page is finally ready!

On 5th June (less than ten days away...help!) I am taking part in the Salisbury Hospicecare Trust Midnight Walk: 13.1 miles in the middle of the night. It sounded like a good idea when I signed up but now I am now sure I can walk that far and I'm not sure I can stay up that long (I normally go to bed at half past nine!).

Anyway, I have built a JustGiving donation page in case anyone is minded to put some pennies in the pot for the Hospice. All donations gratefully received.
