[/p][p]Please be advised that the event is about walking. Running and Cycling will not count… it is about Steps. [b]10 Million of them[/b].[/p][p]Walking not only helps in maintaining fitness and wellbeing both physically and mentally but it also provides a routine in these lockdown times. With the end of lockdown on the horizon and along with the vaccine rollout now is a perfect time to raise some much-needed funds for two fantastic North West Charities. The two chosen charities are mentioned below, they both do fantastic and amazing work and we are humbled to support and help them with fundraising. [/p][p][b]The Charities:[/b][/p][p]The two Charities that we are supporting with this challenge are: [/p][p] [b]1. Derian House Children's Hospice, Chorley. [/b][/p][p] [b]2. Marie Curie (North West) Palliative and end of life care.[/b] [/p][p]Many families and veterans throughout the North West have personally experienced Marie Curie in operation on numerous occasions The excellent service they provide in administering end of life care and also ensuring that specialist nurses are available in time of need is beyond doubt first class. [/p][p]You may not know that Children Hospices only attain a small grant from the government, this normally equates to about 15% of their running cost, the rest has to be procured by donations, fundraising and by hard graft. The service that Derian House provides is excellent on all counts. It is Ideally situated in the North West and also has a good catchment area. [/p][p]The thought of walking 10 Million steps is mind blowing certainly for an Individual or a small group, however [b]in Team Effort mode[/b] it can be achievable especially with some hard work, dedication, determination and all within the current lockdown rules. It is stressed at this point that we are talking steps…. We will not be working in miles/kms or time. [/p][p]There will be approximately 33 veterans and family members taking on the challenge individually. To achieve such a goal in the time frame of 31 days means that most of the members will be walking on a daily basis for the full 31 days. [/p][p]All steps will be recorded on a 24 hour basis and the screen shot from each individuals effort will be digitally stored and entered onto a database. There will be a daily running total displayed on this page and updated at 10pm each evening. [/p][p]The amount raised on completion of the challenge will be equally divided between Derian House and Marie Curie. We are looking to the good people of the North West to assist the Veterans of the Queen’s Lancashire Regiment with the fundraising. Please give generously and please do copy the links and share with all family and friends as well as on all social media outlets. It's all for a fantastic cause and two great Charities [/p][p]Queen’s Lancashire Veterans[/p][p] [/p][vmgvideo class="ql-video" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="true" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/MuCFEHjI_f4?showinfo=0&rel=0&iv_load_policy=3"][/vmgvideo][p][img][/img][/p]

I've had nothing to do with QLR but as ex-RAOC I have issued them stores in NI (late 1970s)! Whilst playing football against your team, a player landed on my thumb and broke it the day before my first son was born! Best wishes for both great charitys.
