Thanks for taking the time to visit my second JustGiving page!  The first one raised almost £800, but expired at the end of July, so here’s the second attempt  

I am eventually going to walk from John O Groats to Lands End as a way of celebrating the new phase in my life after stopping teaching.  It seemed a good idea to also support an excellent charity at the same time.

I'm not walking fast, it's going to be an average of around 12 miles a day,  but it's going to be relentless, taking four months of pounding the hills and roads, carrying all my belongings on my back, undoubtedly missing my friends and family.  However, I'm hoping that it will also be an exciting and interesting adventure and that I will have seen a lot more of our lovely country.  It might also improve my sense of direction, which is famously poor!

Because my long walk was postponed by two years (at least) by the pandemic, in the meantime in July and August 2021 I am going to walk the Coast to Coast path, so going across the country before I go down it next year.

I'd be so grateful if you wanted to support me and Buckinghamshire Mind, who do so much to support people in our area who are having to deal with mental health problems.  I personally find walking very therapeutic for my own mental health, and therefore it seemed a particularly appropriate charity for my challenge to support.  And of course, mental health organisations are in demand more than ever because of the pandemic. 

If you want to keep up with how I'm getting on, then my blogpost is at 


Thanks so much!
