Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
Hilary Bradt and I will be walking the length of Hadrian’s Wall at the end of June/early July to celebrate my 80th birthday. Please sponsor us and/or join us if you can, for part or all of the walk. See the MfM website (www.moneyformadagascar.org) for dates and details. Please also take the time to look at the website to see what MfM is doing in Madagascar. I am a trustee and ex-Director of MfM and Hilary is a Patron. We are very concerned because, sadly, Madagascar is currently one of the poorest countries in the world. MfM has been working there for 33 years and has some very interesting programmes under way and a lot of heartwarming success stories to tell. The need is very great and we are not a huge organisation, but nevertheless our funding and the work of our partners has reached many thousands of people over the years. The more funds we can raise the more people we can help.
We would love to have some more octogenarians join us for at least one section of the walk as it will be brilliant for publicity! Hilary is near but doesn't quite make the octogenarian category but I think we can pretend that she qualifies! Vindolanda, a mile south from Once Brewed is a wonderful place to visit so how about an “octogenarian weekend” on 29th/30th June? Of course adults and children of any age will also be more than welcome.
