Cordwainers Charities

The Master's charity for 2016/17 is the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. Each year the Master Cordwainer chooses a charity which members fundraise for. We also support footwear education, the Royal Society for Blind Children, the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, the Royal Free Hospital and almshouses.

Story

The two of us, Jilly and Lynnie, are attempting to walk the whole way from Fulham to Sutton in one day without stopping too many times for a rest or refreshments! We are training up as not as fit as could be! Jilly has been swimming in close proximity to some enormous rugby players and Lynnie is becoming a star at stepping up and down - even investing in some trainers next week. Jilly has just realised there are only five weeks to go! Jilly has dragged Lynnie into doing this walk but might be the one being dragged on the day. Both are hopeful the t shirts are attractive and have v necks. Both have the suggested training schedule sonewhere and maybe need to find it. Jilly seems to remember that 75mins of walking was mentioned but not sure how going to do that until evenings are lighter as chained to a desk all daylight hours at the moment. Lynnie is being much more thorough with training and will probably leave Jilly behind at first corner. Watch this space for updates .....
