Peter has made it! Yesterday morning, at about 10.00 m, I strolled into the main car park at John O Groats. My virtual walk was over. The original distance from Lands End to John O’Groats is 811 miles per Google Maps. I somehow did 913, but I did do several detours, especially around the Yorkshire Dales and The Lake District.
Since my last blog I have covered the distance between Ramscraigs, up to Wick, along the A99, and into John O’Groats.
The purpose of me doing this virtual walk was to try to raise as much money as possible to help fund the running costs of your local library in Adderbury. FOCAL have the responsibility to raise £10k every year. If they don’t, then the future of the library could be at risk.
I also realise that people are tired of being asked to sponsor this or donate to that which is why I have tried to do something different. Hopefully, in return for a donation from your hard-earned cash, I have given you something in return. The purpose of my weekly blog was to hopefully make you smile whilst you learnt something new and quirky every time. I also threw in quite a few litter picks around the village whilst I did my actual walking.
If you have appreciated my efforts, and you care about your local library, please make a donation now. How to do this is under the Donation link on this website.
Some of you have already pledged money on completion. Can you all now action those pledges.
Please, I won’t personally ask for donations again, so please act now.
