Story

I have wanted to do this hike for years but life kept getting in the way... I turned 50 in February and decided THIS MUST BE THE YEAR !  So Half-century-have-a-go-hero-Me plus my faithful Border Collie Meg will start ankle deep in the Irish Sea at St. Bees in Cumbria on Saturday Sept 9th.  All being well, we will hike Wainwright's Coast to Coast all the way to The Cleveland Way. We will then walk that to Roseberry Topping and then head North to Eston Nab, East to Errington woods and home to Saltburn. There we will sooth our aching feet in the North Sea and raise a jar at The Ship! And we will do it camping all the way - No B&Bs!  It was a no brainer to do it for charity. Why Zoe's Place? Because it is a hospice for under 5's with life shortening and life threatening conditions, and here I am, I've made it to 50 and if I keep putting one foot in front of the other, I can cross England; and raise some cash for the kids. The specialist care that they need cannot be provided by our chronically underfunded NHS so Zoe's Place is vital. If you can help, please do and Me and Meg will do the legwork...190 miles of it!  MANY THANKS IN ADVANCE ;-)
