Been a few days since I posted anything but a quick update for you all that’s read and followed my epic journey back in May, over 870 views.
Since I finished the end to end, I have got a final total of £1125 for 3 charities which as a reminder are Help Harry Help Others, Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide and Prostate Cancer UK,the split was £375 per charity which include a small donation towards SoBS because of the way the fundraising website split the funds.
I have done the usual presentation pictures for 2 of the charities, the 3rd one is proving slightly difficult to arrange but will happen soon.
Here I am with Georgie Moseley the patron and chairperson of Help Harry Help Others at the Birmingham Cancer Support Drop In Centre, which came to life out of HHHO.
I have also done a presentation towards Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide, my daughter representing them although most of the fundraising for the charity is done by her friends .. this was in memory of Katie B (my daughters closest friend who gained her wings too young).
I have only the Prostate Cancer UK presentation to do and that will follow soon I hope.
I have also become a member of the Lands End to John o groats Association which is the official place where any type of “End to End” adventure is recognised whether it be walking, cycling, travel by public transport or any other means. I received an Official membership card and also had my story of the journey published in the Quo Vadis magazine which members receive 3 times per year, I will get my certificate posted to me in January after the annual awards and presentation night they have which unfortunately I cannot attend.
So here is The Tykester signing out from this blog officially now, it’s here forever to read and hopefully encourage others to try the LEJoG or JoGLE by whatever means they want to and gives you an insight into what it involves from a planning stage onwards to completion.
