And we are off! Day 1 of our sponsored Coast to Coast walk began this morning.
We started our walk from Kirkby Stephen today.We started the walk from Bollam Cottage at Kirby Stephen (pictured below).
We then hiked to the Nine Standards (pictured below).
Everyone is fit and well with 14 miles completed. It wasn’t all hard work as we had time to stop for tea and scones at Ravenseat Farm about two miles from Keld (pictured below). Aren’t we a happy bunch of hikers!
There is still time to donate as our walk will not be complete until the 10th of June.
Remember we are also providing a bottle of spirits or food hamper to the value of £15 for the sponsor (who donates £10 or more) and provides the nearest guesstimate of the number of steps I take in completing the walk. The link to my fund raising page is appended below.
Many thanks in anticipation of your support for Dunfermline Advocacy and our target of raising £1000+ and thanks also to those who have already donated.
Please pass this message on to family and friends to invite them to sponsor our walk and to raise much needed funding for a local charity who help vulnerable people in West Fife.
We will be sending you regular updates and photos throughout the sponsored walk. If you do not wish to receive such updates please click on the unsubscribe link below.
