Hello everyone. In July this year, I’ll be walking 100 miles across England for Stand Up To Cancer. I’m aiming to get the word out to more people this time so I’ve got the SU2C team on board here’s the details for donating. To all those of you who generously donated last time, a huge thanks. I’m hoping to get an even bigger target this year. I also hope to highlight the brilliant work done by SU2C. And I’ll be posting photos and videos along the way to let you know how I’m getting on. Thanks and maybe I’ll see you on the trail.
So we did it! 87 miles in 6 days, from Ivinghoe Beacon in the east, to Avebury stone circle in the west. Huge thanks to the brilliant folk who helped to organise, cajole, and generally to solve this logistical tesseract, especially Mita you are a marvel! And all those who walked with me, who offered words of encouragement along the way. The last section was Ogbourne St George to Avebury ; the sun came out and I was treated to a rare sighting of Limenitis camilla, or a White Admiral butterfly if you prefer, glancing and gliding over my head. Then the slow descent into the Stone Circle of Avebury, my favourite henge. My number one in the henge charts. Not just bigger than Stonehenge, but more tactile, more stone-touchy. More spiritual. And as if to make the point, I met a lovely couple celebrating their pagan wedding.
I rested my head against these ancient stones, felt their healing power, drank some ale, had a packet of crisps and dreamed of sleep. To commemorate my mum’s passing ten years ago I set up this page. One last mention before I start planning my next venture. Thanks all . BB
