    Story

    Creative Minds.

    Meredith, 12 years old, decided for her summer vacation she would like to do something different, to give something back to society. She wanted to repay the support she (and us as parents) received from the Northamptonshire Dyslexia Association. Hiking 91 miles was her idea too! Her aim is to raise awareness and monies for the Northamptonshire Dyslexia Association, that will part fund a workshop in the autumn to help other children, parents and adults learn how to live with Dyslexia.

    Planning to do it the hard way. True Hiking!

    The route is planned. We are going West to East, hoping to complete the walk in 8 days (including a day of rest mid week to let the legs recover). We have decided to do things the hard way, carrying all our own camping equipment. No support vehicle, no posted ahead belongings! Finishing in a motel in Newcastle City. The entire trip and all equipment is funded entirely by ourselves and not donations.

    Ready to Ramble

    Training has taken us to the Lake District, the Brecon Beacons and the Derbyshire Dales. We have refined our kit, and put some miles in our legs. In the process we have enjoyed each others company and experienced some wonderful time together. Look out for our photos on facebook (@HadriansWall4NDA) or twitter #hadrianswall4NDA.

      Last Saturday, the awareness event you funded was held, over 100+ parents/teachers in attendance, many stalls, guest speakers, all with valuable information, aimed at supporting and nurturing our talented children. Meredith presented a cheque for the monies raised to date and in turn was awarded an award for her amazing efforts in supporting her local dyslexic association. The video credits below brought a few tears and a round of applause which was also a show of appreciation, from all who attended, for your support. Enjoy & Thanks Again.

      We made it! 91 miles, from coast to coast. It has been an amazing journey, challenging at times, particularly the hot middle section. The experience will last with us for ever. The entire adventure was Meredith’s idea. I will never forget the determination and desire Meredith possesses to achieve her aims. Please accept our sincere thanks for your support, you have made a huge difference on our journey, knowing you were watching and cheering us on. Collectively we have raised £3150. THANK YOU SO MUCH Day 7 https://gopro.com/v/D9V9XVvKyLmW
