My name is Des Francis and i live and work in Torbay and surrounding areas.Welcome to my fundraising page.I was hoping to walk between Walsall and Plymouth shortly after xmas but due to difficulties planning the event this is pending.If we have sufficient interest and the event is doable it will take place starting Boxing Day and ending in Plymouth Home Park on match day with Walsall Football Club....If for any reason the event cannot take place I will be challenging myself by partaking in the Meonstoke Winter Cross Ultra 50k....(This is a difficult trail event which must be completed between the hours of 7.30am and 4.30pm)
I am hoping that locals,friends,associates and relatives will get behind my efforts, as the funds I raise will be going to help give special days to some really brave local children. This will also include giving children from Mary Elliot SEN school in Walsall a special theatre day and giving a surfing experience to the kids from Downham House Children's Home in Plymouth.
As well as donations, I'd be grateful for any support with publicity or interested in any other way you could help- so please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I'm also very happy to hear from you personally or via text on 07863814444.
Thank you everyone for taking the time to look at this page.
