Story

The specific aim of this is to raise money for the MND Association, an association that has been brought to my attention by the disease affecting the father of one of my best friends. There is no better feeling than helping a mate and letting him know we care, by going for a long walk, in Autum in a cold part of England renowned for bad weather but the REAL reason is to get some cash for an organisation that knows how to use it to support people affected by MN and allow research to minimise it's impact and hopefully eradicate it entirely in the future.

So please dig deep and donate now. A pound for the whole 75miles or  £10 per mile.....something, anything will be very gratefully received

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
