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]

Hello Jane, I do hope the recovery is progressing well. I have just given a presentation to a Ladies Coffee Club in Leeds on the subject of "Jenny Wren - Ladies at Sea". My fee was £35 and I informed them I wished it to be donated to your cause. Good luck

Commander Jane: what a brilliant effort and it’s a privilege to be able to support you. From an ex-Wren whose parents both served in the Navy in WW2.
