a big thank you – but more help needed

I can’t believe how quick the time has gone since I last posted.
Heaps has happened since then (more in further posts)
Things are going well regarding the long walk I’m doing in September.
I’m exceedingly grateful for all the help I’ve received so far.
The Plumtree pub in Canton has allowed me to do a quiz there, and I’m hoping it will be some time in August.
I’m looking for local businesses in Cardiff to donate prizes to a raffle, so if you’d like to help me I’ll pop the details at the bottom of this blog.
I’m also looking for training partners, I’ve been walking round the Orme in Llandudno, plus numerous traipses round the local parks, but I’d like to do something a bit more adventurous before the event which starts on the 4th September from Chelsea road, Bath.
The biggest thank you has to go to Wendy and Dave at Designs & signs in Canton. They’ve designed all my T shirts, plus those for others to wear.
I absolutely adore them and can’t thank Dave and Wendy enough.
You can find out more about their work at:

Frank from our local guide dogs team and I will be walking through town on Friday handing out sponsor forms.
I’ve done well so far by taking them round to my local church – plus various friends.
Please spread the word about this walk.
I really want to reach my target to name a puppy John after my Dad who died four years ago.

  1. Can other people join you on part of the walk? I know some did that for me when I walked the length of the Malvern Hills. Also, would you like one of my CDs for the raffle?


    1. yes please, and yes they can. Thanks so much Sarah, your support means heaps, I’ve had quite a difficult day getting people to help me (or not)
      I’ll pop the details up of when and where we’ll be, it should be done by middle of next week.


      1. Ooh exciting; I’ll look forward to seeing your schedule. Just Email me your address or message it me on Twitter and I’ll get a couple of CDs out – one to listen to and one to put in the raffle. 🙂

    I wanted to share this post with you all because Nicki’s a friend of mine, and one of the people in this world I most admire. She’s walking from a road named after her recently-retired guide-dog to one named after her new dog, and would love to raise enough money to name a guide-dog puppy in her dad’s memory:
