Charity sponsored walk

As an extra fund raiser this year, we undertook a sponsored walk for our charities Cornwall Air Ambulance and CLIC Sargent. The walk startes at Padstow church to walk the Saints Way, which is a recognised walk across Cornwall to Fowey on the south coast. That totals 28 miles altogether, so as it is not possible to walk in a day, we stayed the night in Lanivet church hall. 9 people started the walk at around 9.30 and soon increased to 10 as we met Evie soon after we started. We stopped for lunch around 1pm at Hustyns. We continued to walk after lunch and got to Lanivet around 4.30 where we enjoyed a meal at the Lanivet Inn. After bacon sandwiches on the Sunday morning, we set off with 6 more walkers, taking the total to 16. Unfortunately the weather wasn't kind in the morning, and we soon got soaked! The terrain was a good mix of roads and tracks, with the odd muddy trail! We got to Fowey around 3.30 on the Sunday and enjoyed an ice cream, although we were all a bit worse for wear. We raised over £500 for charity with our efforts.
