100 miles in August for ShelterBox

RCN 1096479
We provide emergency shelter and tools to support families overwhelmed by disaster


So far this year, I've raised funds for 7 charities by walking 100 miles each month. This month (August) I'm walking and raising money for ShelterBox! .

I've been a supporter of ShelterBox since 2008 and I have a great deal of admiration for the work they do. They help people who have had to leave their homes or had them damaged or destroyed because of extreme weather or conflict.

This isn’t my first walking challenge. Last year I did the equivalent distance from John O’ Groats to Lands End (1,109 miles) by walking locally so I thought another walking challenge would be a good idea. I’m grateful that at my age - rapidly approaching my 80th year - I have my health and can walk with ease and enjoyment. I still feel I have the energy to walk 10 miles a day. Although, when I sit down at home now, I do find myself dropping off quickly!

ShelterBox are currently helping people affected by conflict in Ukraine, Mozambique, Ethiopia, Cameroon, and Burkina Faso. They are also responding to the worst drought to hit East Africa in 40 years. ShelterBox was founded in Cornwall in 2000 and since then they have supported more than 2.5 million people in around 100 countries. Every response is different and so they tailor aid packages to the needs of disaster affected people, listening to what communities need.
