My story

[p]Hello, thank you for visiting this page. [/p][p]In 2017, the Naval Service celebrated the formation of the Women’s Royal Naval Service (WRNS) and recognised the vital contribution made by women in today’s Royal Navy. [/p][p]To mark my close involvement with the WRNS100 Project Group, and my recent retirement from the Royal Naval Reserve in December, I decided to raise money for two naval charities by setting out on an epic maritime walk. I estimate that my anti-clockwise route around the coastline of mainland Britain will take over a year and cover at least 5,500 miles. [/p][p]While still undertaking WRNS100 duties I started on 21 Oct 17 from Admiral Nelson’s flagship, HMS Victory, in Portsmouth. I plan to finish there over a year later – hence the title [b]Victory Walk[/b]. My motivation for attempting this long trek is to raise money for two important charities close to my heart: [/p][p][b]The Women’s Royal Naval Service Benevolent Trust (WRNS BT)[/b][/p][p][b]The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity (RNRMC)[/b][/p][p]You can sponsor me on my [b]Victory Walk17-18[/b] by donating through this Virgin Money Giving page; all donations will be equally split between the two charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on behalf of the charities where the donor is eligible for this.[/p][p]Having already walked across the country from west to east and its length from John o’ Groats to Land’s End, I have now set myself the ultimate challenge of walking round it. As a 2012 Olympic Torchbearer, I will now be ‘carrying the torch’ for women of the Naval Service, past, present and future.[/p][p]Please, help me to make every step worthwhile. Thank you.[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]

Your recent address to the WRNS BT AGM had me fighting back the tears. I had no idea about the amount of planning and preparation that has gone into your quest let alone the physical and mental resolve that you have had to find. Go Jane, Go!
