Support a great cause, Sponsored Walk

Dear All,
( Jean, Founder of New Hope Charity)
I am doing a sponsored walk on Sunday 13th July, from Worcester to Droitwich using the canals, its approx. 10 miles! We will start at the Diglis Hotel in Worcester and finish at St Andrews Town Hotel in Droitwich.
I’ve been training since March in all winds and weathers!! This is a big challenge for me personally as before I started my training my idea of exercise was walking from my front door to my car door!
Money raised from the walk will go towards funding days out for our children (including their transport) and if we raise enough we will buy some new outdoor equipment in time for the summer holidays.
So far around 20 people are walking with me, all trying to raise money for the children who attend New Hope, if you could sponsor me your donation would be very welcome, using the link above.

Please help support Jean and this great cause, New Hope support and enable disabled children to access leisure opportunities of their choice.

Text WKNH07 £2/£5/£10 TO 70070 to donate, e.g. WKNH07 £5.
Thank you, ill let you know how we get on!
Best Wishes,
Jean
