A somewhat smaller Big Summer Walk

After meeting Jill Liddington the other day, at the end of her epic trek from Yorkshire to London in aid of the British Thyroid Foundation, I almost hesitate to mention the rather littler Big Summer Walk I am organising and taking part in this weekend, from Broadstairs to Ramsgate.  But mention it I must, how else would you know about it, or be able to get involved?

Members of the London Group did this walk with me last year and we raised over £900 which astonished all of us and we were so grateful for that wonderful support. It's amazing how generous people can be when they see you doing something that matters to you.

This year we are doing the same walk on 10th August, setting off around 1pm from Viking Bay, we want to make this a regular annual thing.

If you're in the area and you'd like to join us, please feel free to get in touch, it should be another lovely day out and this year coincides with Broadstairs Folk week - an amazing festival with Morris Dancers, Hooden Horses and all sorts cavorting around the town!

I'll post a write up and some pictures afterwards.

In the meantime here's a link to our fundraising page, just incase you feel inspired to make a small donation or leave a cheering message.

All donations will be received with massive gratitude and every penny raised will go straight to BTF to support their work for thyroid patients.

The Big Summer Walk campaign is something anyone can get involved with, why not organise your own walk, it's a wonderful way to spend time with friends, get some exercise and raise money for this little charity that does so much and needs all our help to be able to do even more for thyroid patients. See the BTF website for more info.
