[p]Hello, thank you for visiting this page and I'm pleased to announce that after 22 adventurous months and overcoming a major injury, I finally arrived back at HMS Victory on 6 Sep 19 having walked an amazing 5,495 miles. Although I've finished walking, I am still collecting money and undertaking talks. Read below to understand why I decided to take on such a long walk![/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 pending 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 estimated that my anti-clockwise route around the coastline of mainland Britain would take well 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 hoped to finish there over a year later – hence the title [b]Victory Walk[/b]. [/p][p]My motivation for attempting this long trek was 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 still 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 set myself the ultimate challenge of walking round it. As a 2012 Olympic Torchbearer, I was keen to ‘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]

Congratulations from Mark and Yacht Good Dog - we met in Cardiff Bay when I was moored up in front of the Assembly building and we had the team from HMS Cambrai visit us both. Amazing feat - much tougher than most "mad ideas" !!
