Walk to Wark June 2016

It’s now nearly twenty years since we walked the original ‘Walk the Wall’ when the intrepid and persuasive local builder Doug Reavley cajoled about 25 of us to walk Hadrian’s Wall. So I can’t believe that this year’s walk will be the tenth organised by the ‘Walk the Wall’ group.  Back then I was galvanised into taking some sort of action after losing two close friends and contemporaries (both farmers) to cancer. Since the first Walk over £170,000 has been raised for Cancer Research UK by the group.  Last year ‘Walk the Coast II’ raised over £10,000 for the charity.

Since 1996 we have all had friends and relatives affected by this horrible disease. Great strides have been and are being made, so we must continue our efforts to raise money to fund the latest treatments and research.

 Our latest challenge is to walk from Langholm in Dumfries and Galloway, known locally as the ‘Muckle Toun’ to Wark-on-Tyne in Northumberland – a distance of about 50 miles.  

I will be joining about 20 others on the 3-day walk, which takes place over the weekend of 10th – 12th June 2016, some of whom will be taking part for the first time. This is the seventh walk I’ll hopefully stagger through, but Doug, the brave soldier, has participated in every one.  

Please help us to raise as much money as possible by sending a cheque payable to ‘Walk the Wall’ to the address below or visit our web-site at www.walkthewall99.wordpress.com where we have a link to a ‘Just Giving’ page www.justgiving.com/walkwark and a ‘PayPal’ account.  Just click on the ‘Donate’ tab at the top of the page.

It would be great to hear from you and thank you in anticipation.
