President Marion and Jen Celebrate the End of their Fundraising Walking Challenges

Congratulations to President Marion and Jen and together we celebrated the end of their fundraising walking challenges.  To meet their targets Jen walked for six months and Marion a full year.

To give perspective, Marion’s mileage (1,526 miles) was farther than walking from Land’s End to John O’Groats – and back again (1,206 miles as the crow flies)!   Jen’s mileage was over 700 miles.  The money which is still coming in will be divided between our two club charities both of which we have supported over the last two years:  The National Centre for Integrative Medicine and Lifeskills-Learning for Living.

The afternoon was a substitute for our “Centenary Celebration Friendship Weekend” which we had to cancel due to the covid restrictions.  It was a beautiful sunny day and keeping to the rule of six we walked around Bristol’s Durdham downs, which is one of our regular walks, but this time we ended with a celebratory cup of tea.  Although the challenge is over, because we enjoyed our walks so much, our regular walks will continue.

If you would like to donate the Just Giving page will be open until the end of May.  The link is:
