Pier-to-pier-website-bannerOn April 17th, I’m going to be taking part in St Helena Hospice’s Pier to Pier walk, going from Walton Pier to Clacton Pier and back again. I’m doing this to help raise money for the hospice in memory of my friend and colleague Martin Hunt, who spent time at the hospice before his death last year.

If you want to sponsor me, I’ve set up a Justgiving page where you can do it directly online, or if you can’t use Justgiving, then please get in touch with me and we’ll arrange some other method.

It should be a nice day out (providing there are no massive spring storms coming in from the North Sea that day) so please come along to show support for me and all the other walkers doing it – there’s lots of fun to be had on the piers while you’re waiting for the walkers to reappear. I chose Walton for my start and finish because there’s a very good chip shop not far from the pier, and fish and chips on the beach is a great way to relax and enjoy yourself at the end of a walk.

You can sponsor me by clicking here, or if you want to take part yourself, there’s more information and a registration form on the hospice’s website. If you really want to help, keep your fingers crossed for good weather on the 17th!

In memory of Martin Hunt

Unfortunately, another commitment elsewhere means I can’t attend Martin Hunt‘s funeral and memorial today, but as his family have requested donations to St Helena Hospice in lieu of flowers, I wanted to mention something I’ll be doing in memory of him in a couple of months.

Pier-to-pier-website-bannerSt Helena Hospice are staging a Pier To Pier walk on the Essex coast in April, on a route between Clacton and Walton piers. I’m intending to do the full fourteen mile there and back walk (not sure which one I’ll be starting and finishing at) so this is fair warning that I will be asking for sponsorship and donations as the time comes near, and every bit of support will be appreciated. It’s not on the scale of my previous charity walking challenge, but this is one to fill a day rather than an entire summer.

In the meantime, please think of Martin’s family today.
