My story

[p]On Monday evening I completed the Isle of Wight coastal path walk my broken knee having mended well and quickly![/p][p]An added dimension for the rearranged walk was that I had the company of one of the homeless residents of the Emmaus Community in Winchester for the whole 70 miles; a huge challenge for him too and he completed the whole walk with me over 4 and a bit days so an additional achievement for us both. He was spurred on the whole time by the personal challenge of helping others who find themselves homeless and in supporting his fellow companions at Emmaus.[/p][p]Thank you all so much for supporting Emmaus Hampshire as you can see we bust through the target raising just over £10,000 including the gift aid.[/p][p]The purpose of the fundraising was to convert part of the community building to enable 3 additional rooms to be provided to increase the capacity of the community to house more homeless people in the Winchester area for which there is a constant demand. I am pleased to also confirm that as a result of your pledges and a grant we have been able to complete these building works this week (a fantastic job done by Mapledean) and so I can say that your donation has been immediately applied and our objective successfully completed which is immensely rewarding for everyone involved[/p][p]Thank you again and all the best[/p][p]Tony[/p]
