The walk will be raising money for three wonderful causes.

For personal reasons, I have stuck with small, highly focused UK charities, though what they champion are relevant to people across the world.

The three charities – The Alzheimer’s Society, The Puzzle Centre and Medical Detection Dogs  – each have their own Just Giving page, so, if you want to make a donation, simply click Donate and pick the one that appeals to you most.

All the money donated will go direct to the charities and, rather than being a drop in the ocean as with many larger international charities, your donations have the capacity to make a real difference. Any donations, however tiny, are massively appreciated.



Alzheimer’s Society

The Alzheimer’s Society is one of the key charities working to support those with Alzheimer’s – and other forms of dementia - and their families. It is also actively researching a cure for the disease, which, shockingly, is likely to affect one in three children born in the UK today, with the number rising all the time.
