1200 Mile Walkies from Land's End to John O'Groats

We've made it!  See our blog for our story,  from toothbrush stealing sea gulls in Cornwall, to losing a toe nail during the floods and a mysterious bagpiper called Eric.

Thank you to all that supported us along the way and for your kind donations.

18th May - 17th August 2007

Woof, woof can I go for a walk

I’m bored with the day to day

Of listening to “I want more hill day talk”

Shall we make a change in May?

We can raise money by walking trails for miles

Carrying a rucksack, compass and maps

Crossing rivers, bogs and plenty of styles

Camping wild where we can for naps

Let’s start at Land’s End and stay on the coast

Until we reach Offa’s Dyke path

The Pennine Way will surely boast

So much mud, we’ll all need a bath

The West Highland Way and Scottish Glens

Will have inspiring Lochs and ridges

Maybe we’ll have time to climb a few Bens

But we’ll have to watch out for the midges

Then we’ll reach John O’Groats after 1200 mile

And across the North Sea we’ll gaze

We’ll remember our sore feet and paws were worthwhile

And the important money to raise

For the Rowans Hospice is kind to the core

And needs to keep its services free

Relying on public help your online gifts are secure

So please can you sponsor Will, Nikki and me?

Woof, many thanks for your support, woof!

If you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.
