Better start planning what we need to take!

Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

Earlier this year, we decided to walk the 80 miles of the Dales Way and thought that we would try to take the opportunity to raise much needed funds for a good cause at the same time. The Yorkshire Air Ambulance requires over £7,000 per day to operate it's two helicopters, and this is paid for in full by voluntary donations. The service has helped save thousands of lives since it's launch in 2000, and we'd like to help keep it going. More information about the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and the work they carry out can be found on their website.

The walk itself is from Ilkley to Bowness on Windermere, and we will be covering the 80 miles over 5 days of walking, starting on 23rd September. Details of the route are shown on the Dales Way website.

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.

So please dig deep and donate now.

Hope it will be as nice as it is this morning everyday; I suspect that is wishful thinking however. #goingtopissitdown

We walked the Dales Way link from Harrogate to Ilkley on Saturday 1st Sept, so technically the walk will have been an extra 16 miles, taking the total up to 96.
