Several months ago during my early planning for LEJOG I decided to try and use the occasion to raise some money for charity. I chose MacMillan Cancer and the lesser known Combat Stress and set a high target of £5000. I’ve now set up a justgiving page and linked it to my Facebook account. I have also created some sponsorship forms and hope to get £5 raised for each mile that I walk. It’s a fairly high target and means I’ll have to make some effort to achieve it. I hope that a bit of advertising in the New Year might help. I’ll also post updates on the target over next few months.
Did a couple of warm up walks this week, 10miles and 6miles carrying my full pack of 13kgs or 28lbs. Taking advantage of the decent dry weather.
