Story

This is it! The big one!  We wanted to do something which would challenge us physically, be fun to do, and most importantly raise money for a great cause. Cancer affects millions of people worldwide and chances are you’ll have/had a friend or family member who has suffered from the disease. It’s our aim to raise £1000 for Cancer Research UK. This money will help to develop better ways to prevent, diagnose and treat the disease.

So how will we raise £1000? Simply! We’re going to walk the full length of the Isle of Anglesey Coastal path in Wales. In total it’s a distance of 125 miles (200k) and will take 6 full days to complete (http://www.visitanglesey.co.uk/anglesey_coastal_path-20.aspx) We will be camping over night at locations throughout Anglesey. On average we will need to walk 25 miles per day regardless of weather conditions. This is going to be a huge challenge, but if it means raising £1000 for such a worthy cause, then it’s well worth it.

All our progress will be broadcasted daily on 103.6 FM Tameside Radio and photos can be found at www.weekendwireless.co.uk and www.tamesideradio.com . You can also follow us on twitter @weekendwireless .Our live radio show is broadcasted every Sundays 5-7pm so please give us a listen. We really need your help to achieve our target, every penny helps so please give generously.

Update 22nd July 2010

God Bless The Weekend Wireless team
