The walk on Sunday 5th June at 10.30am will start at The Oval Bandstand in Cliftonville, Margate and finish at North Foreland Lighthouse.

My Nan has always been an amazing inspiration to our family, she is incredibly selfless and generous with strong family values. She is also unbelievably active for her 90 years, she is involved in many activities and clubs including dancing, table tennis, indoor bowls and singing in a choir that performs at local care homes (in which many of the residents are younger than her).

My husband, our eldest daughter and I also lived with my Nan for a short time after first moving to Kent while the sale of our old house was in process and I was pregnant with Helena. She also came to London whilst Helena was in hospital prior to her diagnosis to offer her support and for concern for Helena. She is always so keen to help.2015-10-31 18.45.43

My Nan’s walk will take place the week before the Queen’s official 90th birthday celebrations. My Nan is a huge fan of the Queen and was born and married in the same years that the Queen was, she also sends a birthday card to the Queen every year. But my Nan is truly the Queen of our family and we all hold her in great regard. Shortly after Helena was diagnosed she quickly offered to do a sponsored 5 kilometre walk in order to raise funds and awareness for Helena. She has also recruited friends from some of her clubs to join her on the walk and show how able bodied older people are keen to help a little baby, not even given the chance to sit unsupported.

We would love to see any of you that can make it, join us on the 5th June to offer your support and to walk the walk alongside my Nan.Walk flyer
