Story

I am so proud to announce that I have totally smashed my original target of £1260 ... drum roll please ....... the final amount is £2300 👏👏

I took on the South West coast path this year. It is 630 miles long!

Since my life changing osseointegration surgery in 2015 I have been gradually increasing the distance I can walk and after achieving my 10k goal in May last year I felt I should set myself a greater challenge, quite a difference in distance!

I spread the walk over the year into sensible do-able chunks and friends and family joined in through the various stages.

Please check out the photos on my facebook page https://www.facebook.com/630miles/

I self-harmed for a while when I was younger and never understood why. SelfharmUK has some amazing resources and I wish that they had been so easily available to me. Now a member of my family has recently self harmed and has asked me to include this charity.

A few past members of my family have suffered with various forms of cancer and most recently my daughter was cleared of cancer, what a relief. Currently my Dad is under treatment and if it wasn't for the amazing research work both my daughter and Dad may not be in my life today.

Everyone of us knows someone who has had, is ungoing treatment for or has lost their life to cancer so Force Cancer Charity is a charity that can help us all.

    17 of us took on the last 7.6 miles from Swanage to South Haven Point. After the initial sharp climb it was a lovely cliff top walk to Old Harry's Rocks. The sun shone on us as we made our way down to Studland and along the beach to a welcome lunch stop at the beach cafe. The last two miles along the shoreline were full of mixed feelings, excitement at reaching the finishing post and sadness that my walk was nearly over. I am a few pounds away from £2000, so a very big thank you to everyone who has donated to these very worthy causes.
