My story

[p]Next year will be the 30th anniversary of the terrible accident at the Union Carbide plant in India.  Over the last 29 years I have seen the desperate plight of the people of Bhopal.  With this charity walk, I hope to raise awareness and much needed money for the two very special clinics which have been set up to treat and support the victims and their children.[/p][p]The 30 mile walk over 4 days took place between 30 May to 2 June, starting at the coast at Crosscanonby and walking along the Allerdale Ramble into the Lake District and finishing in Borrowdale.  It was difficult at times, with challenges along the way - stiles and gates to be climbed! - but I was rewarded with interesting discussions about Bhopal at every opportunity with lovely people I met along the way.  I couldn't have done it without the support of family, the support of Bhopal Medical Appeal staff, and the donations and messages of support received from so many people.[/p][p]I covered all the costs associated with the walk, so all money raised will go to the Bhopal Medical Appeal.[/p][p]Thank you so much for your support.[/p][p]Agnes[/p]

Agnes, Really pleased to hear that the walk was such a success and good weather too. I think it is such a good idea to support causes that have slipped out of the public eye.
