This year we tentatively planned a fourth Devon Hope Walk for the Myotubular Trust for early September, hoping everyone could make it, after once again inviting all our friends and family to join us. Appreciating they are all busy people, this time we gave an option for them to do their own local walk instead of travelling the long distance to join us in Devon.
The day of our Devon Hope Walk was a beautifully sunny, and turned out to be really enjoyable and hugely uplifting, despite us being only a team of 4 plus our dog! Not only did we complete the 10KM walk around the coastline encircling the pretty villages of Noss Mayo and Newton Ferrers – but many lovely friends still found a way to join in too – by doing their own similar walks in their locality! It was so nice exchanging messages with everyone and hearing about their walks for Myotubular Trust over the weekend.
We would also like to thank each and every one of our walkers and sponsors for their support and huge generosity – which has helped us to raise us to over £1300 for Myotubular Trust.
Here are a few photos from the Devon Hope Walk, plus a couple photos and comments from our friends’ various walks around the UK.
‘The first 9km was just fine, until we realised walking the whole of Bradgate Park was only 9km… adding an extra loop at the end promoted some moaning!’
‘We enjoyed a really lovely walk this morning and I told the girls (our daughter & friends’ girls) all about the charity’.
‘We went from Cookham to Bourne End and then along the Thames back to Cookham and had lunch!’
