Team story

[p]I'm walking the length of Britain to raise money to help street children Zambia, through Romilly's Foundation, a charity set up in memory of our daughter who died at the age of 14. Romilly loved children, and street children are some of the most abused, vulnerable children there are. Often they appear as human detritus around areas providing primary materiels for our enjoyment. They really have drawn the short straw. But give them a chance and they rise to the opportunity as both the project in Kitwe, Zambia supported by Romilly have shown. Romilly aims to give them that chance.  [/p][p][b]On the Wirral I was admitted to A & E with cellutitis, a strep infection in my right leg, which can lead to setpticemia, so temporarily called a hault. I got as far as Gretna Green but postponed the Scottish section until this spring, walking from Gretna to Inverness across country in 18 days was hard work. I crossed the the rocky wilderness of the Grampians and the the Monadhliath Mountains. [i]On the evening of 17th May I walked into Inverness to meet Patrick Colquhoun who had arrived earlier in the day, hobbling in with blisters and tendonitis, having walked the West Highland Way and the Great Glen Way in a week in order to raise funds for Romilly. Thanks to all those who have given their time and donated so generously. I will write to thank you but you can read about the walk and see the pictures as well as read about the projects which you have generously supported at [url=http://www.romilly.org]http://www.romilly.org[/url][lt]br /[gt][/i][/b][/p][p][b]I shall be walking Inverness to John O'Groats in the Autumn.[/b] [/p][p]Gallantly having walked with me or walking with me for stretches of the journey and raising funds for street children on this page are: Nick Allen, Ian Alister, Barnaby Dickens, Patrick Colquhoun, Gavin Dobson, Tim & Lizzie Drake, Beatrice Forshall, Catherine Forshall, Flora Forshall, Johnny Forshall, Rose Forshall, Lucy Gore, John Greig, Rosco Imms, Jeremy Love, Gabbie MacBeth, Jerry Rihll, Tessa Rubra, Tom & Georgie Sampson, Dom & Mooie Scott,  Bruce Wyllie[/p]
