Story

By 2050 nearly 2.5 billion people are projected to have some degree of hearing loss and at least 700 million will require hearing rehabilitation. In 2015, our own grandchild Magnus was born with severe hearing loss. Just before his second birthday, he received two cochlear implants that have transformed his life. This therefore continues to be a cause that is very close to our hearts. Over the last few years we have raised funds for the National Deaf Children's Society and the Evelina Children's Hospital in London where Magnus received his implants. This year we have chosen to support GHITA, a small registered charity that is based in Gibraltar, where Robert was born and where we have decided to start our 1,000 mile walk.

We hope that our efforts will help to increase awareness of this cause and charity.

Hello, we are delighted that our fundraising has now reached £240 with more than ten days still left for the start of our 1000 mile walk. We are greatly encouraged by this. Today we have been training along the Thames Path in Weybridge on a rather wet morning! Please keep the donations coming. It’s for a great cause. Please note that Ana Maria and I are paying our own way so all the money raised will go to fund GHITA.

    Yesterday on my birthday I had hoped to raise an additional £100 towards our fundraising target. Thanks to a very generous donation from a donor who prefers to remain anonymous, our target has been exceeded. We have therefore decided to increase our target to £3500 in the hope that more donors will come forward to support this very worthy cause. With many thanks. Robert and Ana Maria

    Dear friends, thanks to 52 incredible people our fundraising has now exceeded our £2000 target which itself had been increased from our original target of £1000. We are now increasing our target to £3000 in the belief there are many more of you out there who will continue to support us and by so doing support the work of GHITA in Gibraltar. Thank you very, very much indeed.

    The Telegraph just posted an article showing the benefits of brisk walking. I guess they could use us as an example of how in your mid seventies you can still lead an active life, challenge yourself physically and help others along the way. If you know and Telegraph readers please point them in the direction of this donation page. We are still “walking briskly” to achieve our 1600km target and will reach 500km in a couple of days. Wish us luck and don’t forget that every penny counts and if they are £’s even better!
