My Nan/Emma’s Great Nan recently passed away. In more recent times Nan had suffered from memory problems & dementia. The chosen charity for Nan’s funeral was Brace who had provided Nan with support during her illness. Rather than simply donating some money to the cause we thought it would be nice to do something to remember Nan by.
Nan had a love of walking and was an active member of the Ramblers before she became unwell. As a family we have all acquired Nan’s love of walking so it would seem apt that the challenge should be walking related.
Having already climbed to highest mountain in Wales Emma has decided she would also like to try climbing the highest mountain in England. At a height of 978 metres and a distance of 6 miles it's no mean feat for a 7 year old to achieve. We plan to undertake this challenge during our trip to the Lake District in August. We have two weeks there so hopefully there will be a suitable day for the challenge. Should the weather curtail our plans we will find another suitable challenge to tackle so that our supporters will see that the sponsorship has been well earned.
*Many thanks to Sprayway & Bristol Evening Post for your kind support*
We have completed our challenge - not only did Emma complete Scafell Pike she also conquered Great End, Ill Crag and Broad Crag on the same walk. Thank you for all you donations. We will continue to keep collecting and may think of more ways to raise funds
