Story

Move For Wellness 2021

The Move For Wellness 2021 started on Sunday 21 February 2021, and wearing a Blue Tutu I am virtually walking, running and spinning around the coast of The United Kingdom, yes that's 2728 miles. Starting in Bushey, the route follows the south coast to Lands' End, then up through Wales to Lancashire around the highlands to John O'Groats, Edinburgh and back along the East Coast before finishing back in Bushey on December 21. Thanks to a number of Spinning sessions including a 5 hour session at TBNS at Villa Park I have now covered 2056 miles and at present virtually in the beautiful city of Dundee the home of The Bash St Kids, Dennis The Menace, Minnie The Minx & Desperate Dan. It also means that I am currently only 672 miles from home.

So what will be doing with £365,000.00 which I hope to raise. Well we have decided to split the money into two. The first half will be to support Talking Cafes which do a brilliant job, but seriously underfunded. We intend to support Cafes that support one of the following 4 causes Mental Health/PTSD, Bereavement, LGBT+ & Drug rehabilitation.

The second half will be used to open up "Oasis of calm" in city centres. These will be available to anyone who is seeing "red" feeling "blue2 or even "black". There you will find a sensory room where you will be able to spend as much time as you need for your emotions to return to normal. Only thing is you will not be allowed to use any electronic communication so that means no phone, laptop or tablet for the duration of your stay at the "Oasis"

Therefore I hope you will feel generous and want to support my efforts & so how about these interesting ideas such as the number of steps, feet, yards or miles you want me to do. If this appeals to you then it’s 50p per step or £1.00 for each foot or £5.00 per yard, or £10.00 a mile. Or you can just make a donation that you feel comfortable with for the entire 2728 miles. All money raised will be used to help people suffering from trauma related issues.

However, I would also like to encourage everyone to take part regardless of age or ability as any movement outside your day to day movement is a step in the right direction. It can be slowly built up from 2021 seconds to 2021 minutes. As the Move For Wellness is not limited to the UK you can join in anywhere. So why not walk or skip or jog around your neighbourhood, town, city or county. Why? Because exercise in any form is the fastest way to raise your endorphin levels, which cause you to feel happy and relaxed.

Now my so called friend Francis suggested I bring my bowls with me for a game against Philip and a few of his mates, I think I heard the time wrong 15.88? Anyway time for a rest as I've now done 360 miles and be heading off to The Lost Gardens of Heligan. #maninatutu #moveforwellness21

    Delighted that the man in the Tutu has now reached another milestone and that's 225 miles and now visited Stonehenge, Portsmouth and now Bournemouth Pier and on the way to Bridport in Dorset not Connecticut. Can I please ask if you can, please donate as every penny, dime, cent, euro, rupee, dong, rubble and any other currency will be used to help people suffering from the effects of trauma #maninatutu #moveforwellness

    Just thought all would appreciate an update as to where my virtual tour of the UK has taken me. On Sunday I reached my first milestone as I had covered the first 91 miles which took me to the mystical site that is Stonehenge. I'm now on my way to the next stop on the 2021 mile walk, skip, jog & spin around the UK Portsmouth
