Regular members of the congregation will know that I had a bit of a LEJOG stroll a couple of years back and blogged it as I walked. Well, in a few days time, starting on Sunday 5th April, Geoff Gafford will be stepping out for his own very special walk. In his own words:
"I shall be walking from Land's End to John O' Groats and.... I intend to camp most nights. I will be rained on much of the way, chased by sheep and probably eaten by wild animals. I hope to blog from the trail on a daily basis so do follow me as I go - log on to
Now, for a bright bloke, Geoff is doing this the hard way! He will be using his tarp as a shelter with a midge cage for the more infested bits of 'up-north'. However, he will, as his blog title suggests, be going very lightweight, with a pack weight of just 20 lbs in old money.
It's the walk of a lifetime and Geoff is putting it to good effect, by walking for the MS Research and Relief Fund. I am sure he would appreciate your help and support if you were to pop over to his 'JustGiving fund raising page and pop a few pounds in to help. I know it's a big ask in these cash-crunching times, but charities need your help now more than ever.
So - all the very best of luck, Geoff. Have a a wonderful walk. I am really looking forward to reading your adventure.
