Three Months to Go!

It is now three months to the day when I’ll be heading west across the Mendip hills for a full and enduring 30 miles! Just like the Circuit of Bath walk at the end of September; this one’s in aid of another charity, Weston Hospicecare. If you read about the work they do, you’ll quickly realise how indispensable they are. I’m sure we all know at least one person who’s been diagnosed with cancer.

I’ve touched on this event in a couple of my recent walking posts and now, the time feels right to begin asking for donations and so, I’ve just this morning created a fresh page on JustGiving.

Again, I’ve decided not to set a target as that can bring with it the anxieties and pressure that can surround expectation and disappointment, particularly when goals are not met or exceeded. I’m asking for people to consider and I’m hoping that a few will donate a small amount. Chances are that I’ll remind you again at the beginning of April, in May and then in the penultimate weeks before the big day.

You’ll also find a convenient ‘Sponsor Me‘ button has been added to the top-right hand corner of my blog.

JustGiving - Sponsor me now!

Twelve weeks or so and it suddenly seems so real… It could take a good 12 hours but I’m excited and looking forward to it!! 🙂

Thank you for reading. I do hope you might consider a donation. Best of luck to everyone else who is also entering this event.

    I will donate. Good cause. About 5 years ago I did the Chagford challenge on Dartmoor. 30 miles – took about 10 hours, hard work but very rewarding.

    Er hum, it’s 31 miles Mr P-J… Crook Peak will never look so deadly again.

      Crook Peak isn’t deadly! We should also do my 11 miler – it nearly killed 6 people and that was 3 miles before the welcome sight of that rocky point!

      From what I’ve read of others who’ve walked the West Mendip Way, we are walking in the right direction, with more downhill slopes than vertical climbs.
