Weʼre raising £500 to raise money for Shelter in supporting their work in tackling homelessness and The East Telford Benefice to support their work in mission
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

I am planning to walk The Shropshire way in 2 weeks. 140 miles around the countryside of Shropshire. Living ‘on the tramp’, sleeping rough. Experiencing what life was like for the People who built the railways and canals in days gone by and what life is like for People who are homeless today. I am raising money for Shelter to aid their mission that ‘everyone should have a home’ and also to support my Churches in the East Telford Benefice in their mission ‘praying, giving, loving and serving’ the people in their parish.
So what’s in it for me? Well as an overweight 64 year old I hope to get myself more fit, in body, mind and soul. To treat the journey as a pilgrimage, a journey undertaken with the expectation of being changed spiritually. I will pray for and bless the areas I walk through, praying ‘Thy kingdom come’.
Please would you consider donating?

Preparations for the walk are well in hand. Ration packs for each day have been prepared using a food dehydrator and a vacuum sealer. I’ve tested out my bivvy bag by sleeping in the garden for several nights and adjusting equipment as necessary. Can’t do much about the old bones and being overweight though. I’m hoping I’ll get lighter as the days go by.. living on rehydrated meals should help with this! I’ve marked out the route on the relevant OS maps and downloaded guides to the 14 sections of the route. What can go wrong!
