On the Sixth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me…
Six Geese A Laying, Five Gold Rings, Four Calling Birds, Three French Hens, Two Turtle Doves and a Partridge in a Pear tree.
It’s beginning to get a little long winded this 12 Days lark but I am determined to pull it off and resolve to get to the end so I hope I still have some people still reading by the end of it all.
I suppose in some respects we should be thankful for the fact that I only post once a day and not continually….!
So yesterday was a busy day as ever. I was up and at them first thing so that I could get on with moving some things on and before I knew it, it was time to leave the house and get on with the day. I had planned a quick trip to the gym but in the end was really quite busy, however it was no drama because I reckon I expended as much energy doing my various jobs and talking the dog for a walk as I would have done at an hour in said Gym…
I have been thinking about the coming year and the fact I really will need to start towing the line and getting in some pretty hardcore walking training if I am to manage my HENRY Charity Walk next June (see header for a link) but I am positive that I will be able to manage it all, along with really pushing to improve my fitness. This also means that I shall have a great deal of preparations and logistical planning to get me sorted for walking along the Ridgeway then heading up to Hadrians Wall to do the same, thus completing my 170 miles journey inside the ten days put aside for the task.
I am very lucky that a very good friend of mine with EXCELLENT organisational skills has volunteered to help me with all of the logistics of camping and food and water and other walkers wanting to join etc etc, although I think I may have put the cat amongst the proverbial pigeons after announcing that it might be nice to have some Primary School classes walk with us for a mile or so each day and thus bring the message home to all we can both in the North and in the South of the country and how the charity aims to help the really young live a much healthier lifestyle.
I would therefore like to ask if I could have a little feedback from everyone who may have some ideas of what else I might do to make the whole event more newsworthy and therefore more likely to raise the £10,000 I would like to raise for the charity in question.
Please do list any ideas you think might work no matter how daft you think they may be. I need to read them all and consider them all so nothing will be pooh poohed out of hand, it will be discussed with the logistics and considered by the charity. Remember we are trying to make this as HIGH profile as we possibly can and although I have local news covering it, I think this is national newsworthy because of the subject matter and the fact that I am a newly slimmed down guy living a new and healthy lifestyle…..
So I shall leave you with that thought and I am sure you will wrack your brains until a little gem pops out.
Thanking you in advance,
Stay out of the fridge
