My story

[p]Last year, through many people’s generosity, I raised £775 including Gift Aid towards the rebuilding fund for All Saint’s Church by joining the Rotary Fleet Fun Walk. With the Walk postponed until 2021, I decided to walk essentially the same route of 10½ miles and look for your kind and generous sponsorship to raise further funds.[/p][p]My aim was to better last year’s personal total. I had originally hoped for a four figure sum and set a target of £1,000. Thanks to the many people who have sponsored me so generously, that target soon was exceeded; and when I adjusted it to £2,000, that in turn was beaten. So I raised the bar again to £2,500, and with all the munificent additions that you have given over this last weekend, even that now has been surpassed. So let’s see if we can meet and exceed £3,000![/p][p]I walked on Wednesday 2 September. I left at 06h00 for the first circuit, and managed the 10½ miles in 2 hours 59 minutes, an average speed of 3½ miles an hour, which is a fast pace. For the second circuit, I was joined by my daughter Alexandra; appropriately enough as she was baptised at All Saints. We left at 10h15 and walked the circuit in the opposite direction at a rather more leisurely pace: I was already tired from the first time, and Alexandra, whilst a good walker, is a bit out of practice; we last did this sort of distance together three years ago. We managed fine, and got back home at 14h36 with a bit of leg ache and I have raised some largish blisters; but well worth it for the sponsorship.[/p][p]The route was that of last year’s Rotary Walk; through Elvetham Heath Nature Reserve, the edge of Ancells Farm estate to Fleet Station, around Fleet Pond to join the Basingstoke Canal, along the Canal to south of Crookham Village, and then back up through Crookham Village, past All Saints school, through Calthorpe Park, past Hope Cemetery and home. The route is attached.[/p][p]I was very determined to get round twice in one day as a large number of people had offered very generously to double their sponsorship if I made it. 21 miles is the distance from Fleet to Windsor, which puts the distance in some context![/p][p]I have been absolutely amazed at the generosity of my sponsors; very many thanks to all of you and particularly to those who have taken me up on the ‘double your money’ suggestion. [/p][p]And if you have yet to add your name to the Roll of Honour, I hope you feel able to be generous for a very worthy cause![/p][p]Many thanks again.[/p][p]Chris[/p]
