Because a couple of friends of mine (and their families) have been very well treated by LOROS in their end-of-life stages dealing with cancer, I have decided to raise money for LOROS by giving myself a challenge – to walk the 102 mile Leicestershire Round.
I am inviting those who wish to join me to do so – these will be walks of no more than 15 miles around the countryside of Leicestershire. Dates and times will be advertised here. As these are not circular walks, I will be arranging public transport/offers of lifts. Please let me know if you plan to come along – so we know to wait for you/pick you up.
If you can’t make it but would like to donate, please do so at my Justgiving page.
Saturday 13th August: Walk 1, Newtown Linford to Mountsorrel (8 1/2 miles; 13.7km, around 4-5 hrs with lunch on the way at a pub in Woodhouse Eaves). Catching the 09:13 120 bus from St Margaret’s Bus Station arriving at 09:35. Return bus 126 from Mountsorrel goes frequently.
Walk details are available here.
The next walks will be in October – more details to come in September.
