Hey all.


My friends and I have been organising a sponsored walk which will take place this April, in the Easter Holiday. We will be walking from Leicester to London along the towpath of the Grand Union Canal over the course of several days.


Money raised will be going towards the LOROS Hospice in Leicester, a charitable organisation who care for terminally ill patients in the region.


Just throwing this out there to see who would be interested in sponsoring a small amount. We'll be setting up a Just Giving page soon.

Hey Susie!


Cheers - we've been planning this walk for a coupla months now. My mum passed away aged 47 from cancer early yesterday morning and LOROS have been very good with caring for her, so it makes us even more determined to do this.


Yeah, it is an arm of the Grand Union that goes through Regent's Park. Not sure exactly which route we're gonna follow, but our aim is to end up in the City Centre of London.


We raised £600 last year for Red Nose Day, just by walking from Loughborough to Nottingham - this walk is going to be more than that every single day, so hope to raise a lot more lol.

Hey guys - set up our JustGiving page last night! People have started donating already!

If you feel you'd like to sponsor us, then brilliant. If you pay tax make sure you tick the Gift Aid box.


Thanks very much guys!

Thanks all! At £220 after only 2 days.


Also, we're going live on BBC Radio Leicester in 2 Saturdays in order to drum up support.


Have since found out that our walk, due to the contours of the canal, is more like 130miles, haha.
