Dressed as a Stag Beetle I walked over 6 miles. We walked in the rain, we walked in the mud, we walked in the wind. We walked up hill, we walked downhill, we walked over boulders, rocks and trees. Eventually mother nature was nice and gave us some sun to finish. So if you haven't watched my video and see what me and my 2 young supporting brothers went through to raise money for Save the Somerset levels please watch it now and help raise money for a good cause!
Hi my name is Charlie Millard and I am 9 years old.
A few days ago a 'Save the Somerset levels' leaflet was posted through our door.
Somerset Wildlife Trust is trying to raise £100,000, to restore four old industrial sites (the equivalent of 26 football pitches) into nature reserves. This will help save the animals fighting for survival in Somerset such as King Fishers, Hobby swoop and Otters as well as plants and flowers
I am very interested in wildlife and the environment. These Nature reserves will be in Somerset, not far from Taunton, where I live, so I really wanted to do something to help Somerset become one of the most wildlife rich places in the UK.
So with the help of my family, I came up with the idea oF a sponsered walk. This ismy plan ;
On the 16th of July, I am going to walk through 4 Nature reserves ; Thurlbear woods, Black Rock, Long wood, and Velvet Bottom, thats almost 6 miles in one day! ...and I am going to do it all dressed as a Stag Beetle!!!
Please sponsor me and help save the Somerset LevelsThanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
