Something that we feel that is close to everyone’s heart !...

Like so many other people having had family, close friends and colleagues who have lost their fight against cancer and now also having two family members fighting cancer.

Andy & Babs wanted to do something to help other people who have been, and will be in the future, affected by this terrible disease.

To celebrate our 40 years of marriage on 17 June - We decided that we would take on the challenge of a long distance walk in the South of England called The South Downs Way which is 100 miles long and follows the old routes and droveways along the chalk escarpment and ridges of the South Downs from Winchester to Eastbourne.

We Started this walk on 19th June and took eight days to complete it.

We would like to get as many people as possible to help in our fundraising, and by asking you to sponsor us!

What a coincidence.... By chance we found out that the South Downs Way was opened 40 years ago.... So we celebrate a Double Ruby Anniversary as we do the walk along the Way... How fitting is that!...

Yours forever grateful Andy & Babs
