My story

[p][b]THE LYKE WAKE WALK[/b] is a complete crossing of the North Yorkshire moors along their main east-west watershed between the Stone at grid reference 470994 and the Trig point at 971012, a distance of approximately 40 miles to be completed within a 24 hour period.[/p][p][b]My Challenge.[/b][/p][p]In July/August I shall be attempting a [b][u]back to back[/u][/b] crossing of the Lyke Wake Walk, eg Osmotherley - Ravenscar - Osmotherley. Starting at approximately 23:45hrs on Friday the 31st July and in keeping with the best traditions of the walk I intend to do the 80 miles/130 kilometres in under 48 hours, finishing sometime on Sunday August 2nd.[/p][p]As usual, I will be self funding my attempt, which means all the money donated by you, will go to my chosen charity for this event.[/p][p]We all know someone who has struggled or is struggling with their mental health, and this is one reason why I have chosen to promote this particular charity this year. I fully appreciate there are many other charities equally deserving of your hard earned and indeed that you may already have made donations to those charities, all I ask is that if you feel able to contribute something via this page then please do so, and if you can't contribute financially then please try to raise awareness of the help this charity provides.[/p][p]Thank you for visiting my page. With much love and respect to you all[/p][p]Roy.[/p][p]I'm taking on this incredible challenge and fundraising in support of Mind.[/p][p]Who are Mind?[/p][p]We're Mind, the mental health charity.
