Walking for Charity - Lyke Wake Walk Jan 2012

I am pleased to announce the first of a series of charity events of which I will be participating in 2012. I have already signed up for and am looking forward to the Great North Swim which is taking place in June. Before that I hope to do a number of charity walking events.

The first is taking place (weather permitting) on the 14th January and together with a small team we will be tackling the Lyke Wake Walk, across the North Yorkshire Moors from Osmotherly to Ravenscar. My hope is that it will be cold enough for those bogs to have frozen over, making the walk easier that it might be on a warm spring day.

That also means that we will get less hours of daylight, but hey you have to compromise somewhere. Claire and I will be walking in aid of South Durham Early Intervention Outward Bound project, giving young people from the north-east who are recovering from psychosis, the opportunity to participate in the activities in the the great Outdoors, learning a number of skills as well as gaining valuable experience such as teamwork as well as  self-confidence and the feeling that they are not alone. Details of how you can sponsor us coming soon.
