Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I am walking the Wight again on 13 May 2012, raising money for the Earl Mountbatten Hospice - the only hospice on the Isle of Wight. I last did this in 2010, when I raised over £400, largely thanks to donations made by customers.

One of those generous customers is no longer with us, having been claimed way too young by pancreatic cancer. So this year I'm walking partly in memory of him and of the fantastic conversations we used to have about our toy soldiers. And partly I'm walking it again because the hospice does such fantastic work here on the Isle of Wight.

Walking the Wight involves covering the distance from Bembridge airport in the east to the Needles in the west - a distance that if walked in a straight line would involve getting your feet rather wet at the end. It's around 28 miles, and I plan to cover the distance in about 10 hours.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.
