The 2016 Walk'n'Roll.
50,000km RTW for charity. By train.

The 2016 Walk'n'Roll. THE global charity event of 2016.

What? A series of sponsored walks, and rolls (for wheelchair users), along the route of a 50,000km RTW train journey.

Why? To raise vital funds for ataxia research, and as a vehicle to unite ataxia sufferers & supporters worldwide. [more....]

Yes. I do all of the walking. And train-ing (is that even a word?). But it is the Friends who make all of these fundraising events even possible.

And to thank them for their vital support, every month I showcase a randomly-selected Friend (and send them one of the many donated gifts that I seem to have ended up with - so watch out for the postie!).

This month (February 2016), I would like to thank Ian & Lit Smith.

Ian joined me in Hyde Park a few weeks ago, as I celebrated my 50th birthday with a wee sponsored walk which raised £110 for Ataxia UK.

Ian also celebrated his 50th birthday, a few years ago, with an ataxia fundraising walk. Except he walked coast-to-coast across England! And raised the magnificent sum of....

£28,000!

I am completely and utterly in awe of his astounding achievement.

And to thank Ian & Lit for their amazing support, I'll be sending them a Fikkerts/Royal Botanic Gardens Kew "Luxury Gift Box" (which was very kindly donated by Meadow In My Garden).



A quick word about this month's prize donors (Meadow In My Garden):

Meadow in My Garden is a family business based in Devizes, Wiltshire, with a love of wild gardens. Their seed mixes will transform any space, creating a magnificent patchwork of colour throughout the summer. They care about our world and want to do everything they can to help more people grow wildlife-friendly flower meadows in their very own gardens.
