The initial £1,000 donations target has just been reached.
My heartfelt thanks go to everyone who has helped me reach this milestone.
Your donations are used IMMEDIATELY by Ataxia UK in their quest to find a cure for this very rare neurological condition. That’s the beauty of collecting in this way (they don’t have to wait for me to complete my walks before they can access the donations).
Which is just as well. Because your £1,000 donations just spur me on to walk some more!
This year I will walk around the Isle of Arran here in Scotland (55 miles); walk along the Canal du Midi in France (200 miles); and then either continue walking in France (and possibly on to the Camino de Santiago in Spain/Portugal), or walk around the coast of Ireland (well over 1,000 miles).
So my next target is to raise £2,000!
Whenever you hit the big red DONATE button, 100% of your donation goes directly, and immediately, to Ataxia UK. And if you are a UK taxpayer, and tick the GiftAid box/option, the UK government will make an additional donation of 25%.
Which actually means that Ataxia UK receive 125% of your donation.
Thank you all for your very kind and generous support!
