Walk to Wark June 2016

WE'VE DONE IT!!

Despite indifferent weather and a challenging route, we all staggered to the end, old and young; experienced and inexperienced; senile and able-bodied. A great effort obviously by the walkers but also by the back-up crew who fed and watered us to the point to where we’ll have arrived heavier than we set off!

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 was 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 £180,000 has been raised for Cancer Research UK by the group.  

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

As of writing this piece your generous donations have taken us to a remarkable £9220. Many thanks to all those that have donated.  Any who would like to 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.
