🚶‍♀️Have You Done Something Like This Before?


I have walked various Ultra Challenge events in 2021, 2022 and 2023, including part of the Thames Path, South West Coast 2 Coast (Minehead to Dawlish), part of Jurassic Coast, the Halloween Walk in London and part of the Cotswold Way

In August 2020, I also walked the full length of The Kennet and Avon Canal over 7 consecutive days, to celebrate my 40th birthday; which I am planning to do again in 2025 for my 45th birthday!

In July 1994, I completed the Vier Daagse in Nijmegen. Four days of walking 20km per day, in the Netherlands (I was 14 at the time!) Plus all the training walks, and the two qualifiers (Avebury to Stonehenge and 2 days of 30km per day, at RAF Benson).

💳 Why I have chosen to do these challenges in aid of the Wilts & Berks Canal Trust?

I am extremely fond of Canal walking, and I am an active member of the Swindon Branch of the Wilts & Berks Canal Trust.

Restoring the canal would not only benefit us mere humans, but the ecological benefits to the flora and fauna are astronomical too!

I am raising funds, to help towards the restoration and creating the blue/green corridor for all to enjoy.
