My story

[p]Hi and thank you for visiting my page. Over 40 years ago I walked from John O'Groats to Land's End, 900 miles in 26 days, raising funds for the children's home I worked in at the time, Reedham, in Purley, Surrey. [/p][p]I had always thought about doing the walk again, and so decided earlier this year to give it a crack. I also decided to make it a bigger challenge than before, so now aiming to raise as high an amount of cash as possible plus all our operational costs, for four children's charities, all doing amazing work for very ill, threatened or vulnerable children.[/p][p]The four charities are Amigos, Children's Hospice South West, Reedham Childrens Trust and Starlight - there are more details on the web site www.walktheextrasmile.co.uk [/p][p]So please dig deep to help children who are much less fortunate than ourselves, some of their stories are a mix of numbing, mind blowing and tragedy[/p][p]Very many thanks[/p][p]Bob[/p][p][/p]
