Although I do love walking, I have never attempted anything quite like this. Carrying everything on my back, sleeping in a tent each night and leaving the comforts of home for five whole days... I thought I would try to raise some money in the process and came across the local charity, BRACE, having witnessed dementia within my own family.
I'll set off (using public transport - something I despise) on Saturday the 9th of June, aiming to complete the long-distance walk by Thursday the 14th of June at the latest.
Any small donation would be appreciated and goes directly to the charity via JustGiving.
