My story

Hello, I'm doing a sponsored walk from Effingham to Chessington World of Adventures to help Post Pals send seriously ill children and their families on a fun weekend away. It's 10 miles and I'm hoping others will join me. I've chosen the route as Post Pals hold an annual party in Effingham and they are trying to raise funds to send them to Chessington. [lt]div[gt]Post Pals is a small charity and needs to raise £300 per a family, currently 30 families have asked to come. The weekend includes[lt]/div[gt] [lt]div[gt] [lt]li style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px;"[gt][span=background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0);]Tickets into the theme park (plus Zoo and Sea Life Centre) for the entire weekend.[/span][/li] [lt]li style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px;"[gt][span=background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0);]Over night stay Chessington Safari Hotel with themed rooms where you wake up to the sight of African animals.[/span][/li] [lt]li style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px;"[gt][span=background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0);]Breakfast[/span][/li] [lt]li style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px;"[gt][span=background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0);]An evening meal in the fun Temple Restaurant [/span][/li] [lt]li style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px;"[gt][span=background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0);]Evening entertainment.[/span][/li] [lt]li style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px;"[gt][span=background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0);]Animals to stroke or hold.[/span][/li] [lt]li style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px;"[gt][span=background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0);]A unique experience for everyone to feed the giraffes accompanied by a luxury picnic. [/span][/li] [lt]li style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px;"[gt][span=background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0);][lt]span[gt]The hire of a portable hoist w[/span][lt]span[gt]hich is a requirement for our severely disab[lt]/span[gt][lt]span[gt]led children[lt]/span[gt][lt]span[gt] to be able to attend this trip. [lt]/span[gt][lt]/span[gt][/li] [lt]li style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px;"[gt][span=background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0);]The travel cost for 5 families who would otherwise not be able to afford the travel expense to cover the cost of their journey to arrive and depart from Chessington Safari Hotel. [/span][/li] [lt]/div[gt] [lt]div[gt] [div=color: #454545; font-family: UICTFontTextStyleBody; font-size: 17px;]Hoping to come to the fun weekend is s[span=background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0);]ix year old Alfie who is having three 3 and half years of daily chemotherapy, his mum said;[/span][/div] [div=color: #454545; font-family: UICTFontTextStyleBody; font-size: 17px;][span=background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0);][lt]br /[gt][/span][/div] [div=color: #454545; font-family: UICTFontTextStyleBody; font-size: 17px; margin: 0px; padding: 0px;][span=background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0);]"We have 5 children and after Alfie was diagnosed with cancer my husband lost his contract at work so money is tight.
