“After a couple of months of gentle persuasion and moderate planning we are now jumping headfirst into this epic quest across the country.
Like many things in our lives we don’t intend to do this the easy way. That means no airbnbs and no luggage transfers. We plan to carry all our own camping and cooking equipment along this stunning route, setting up camp in wild locations and the occasional campsite (with showers!) when we start smelling funky.
We would greatly appreciate any donations little or large which will go to two great causes that provide so much to so many people. The Frimley Park Stroke Unit provides key support to people who have suffered strokes.
This is a condition which is close to our hearts, as in 2015 Alex’s dad, Bob Tweed sadly passed away due to a stroke. We would like to do this walk in memory of Bob and all the others who have suffered from this condition.
We are aware of the amazing work they do as James’ mum works in the unit. Your donations will help fund an appeal to build a new centre which will act as a quiet haven for these patients and their families on their road to recovery”.
“This place gifted us with some of the most dramatic views I’ve seen in the UK, my favourite wild campsite yet and some amazing wild swimming. I really recommend it to everyone! Big thanks to my little (big) bro who impressed me massively by coping with our 27 mile walk over this weekend. This was the hardest training weekend I’ve done and he didn’t moan once”!
If you would like to follow their journey they we will be posting pictures to their Instagram pages before and during the trek (when they get some internet!)
