When Erin, our granddaughter, was just 18 months old we discovered that she had Cystic Fibrosis.

This terrible disease affects over 7,500 young people in the UK and stops many from living beyond their mid-thirties.

We aren't really in the right shape to run marathons and can't bear the idea of sitting in a bath of beans - baked or otherwise. What we can do is walk and walk and walk.

So, on May 31st we will start our walk from one end of the country to the other - John O'Groats to Lands End. That's right.....it's all downhill.

Please make sure to visit our sponsorship page and give whatever you can. Every penny will go to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis and make sure these young people can enjoy life as pensioners like us!

The official start isn't at Dunnet Head but I thought it was a nice picture to show

This isn't where is all begins on the morning of Sunday 31-May.

Apparently, there's an official 'post' that everyone has to start from in John O'Groats.

Every Penny Counts

(viewed 440 times)
No matter which way you look at it - and we've looked at it many, many times - walking from John O'Groats to Lands End isn't a stroll in the park.

Almost 60 continual days of walking is a daunting experience no matter how young and fit you are. Still, the route has been mapped out, the stops have been booked and the gear has been double checked - no going back now.

It's getting closer to D-Day and our interest in the long range weather forecast is getting greater as each day passes - soon it won't need to be so long range.

To spur us on our way why not donate what you can to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust - every extra penny makes a difference.

Thankyou.

PS Make sure to keep an eye out at this site for pictures and videos of our experience en route.
