Walking the Great Wall of China for Childline for ChildLine because Ex-headteacher and mother – it's close to my heart

raised by 89 supporters
  • Team members: I'm walking with three friends: one is a physiotherapist, one a teacher and the third is ex-army and will keep us all moving and safe!
  • Event: Great Wall Treck-, 07 Oct 2017 to 15 Oct 2017


ChildLine is the UK's free and confidential, 24 hour helpline for children in distress or danger. Trained volunteer counsellors comfort, advise, support and protect children and young people who may feel they have nowhere else to turn. Children call ChildLine about a wide range of problems, but the most common problems are abuse (both sexual and physical), bullying, serious family tensions, worries about friends' welfare and teenage pregnancy. Children and young people can call ChildLine about anything – no problem is too big or too small. ChildLine is a service provided by the NSPCC

Charity Registration No. 216401 and SC037717


As well as being a retired headteacher and an occasional supply teacher, I have just finished the 2016 series of the Great British Bake Off where I got halfway.

I needed a new challenge and this walk allows me to do something really positive while raising for a charity that means a lot to me. Bev (the physio) is collecting for Cystic Fibrosis and we will be sharing everything we raise between these two charities.

Thank you so much for visiting this site and we are truly grateful for all donations large or small.
