Trustee Sue Baldock has embarked upon a hiking challenge to raise money for Accomplish. She plans to walk 874 miles, the distance from Land's End to John O'Groats.
During February, Sue walked the equivalent of 135 miles. From Tiverton she walked past Taunton and her favourite county cricket ground, then waved to many friends and relatives as she passed Bath. She continued onto the Cotswold Way, enjoying copious snowdrops, colourful crocuses and a couple of jays.
"A walk in nature walks the soul back home."
Although snow and freezing temperatures made the beginning of the month a challenge, the final few days of February were glorious and a joy for walking. Sue finished the month having passed Dursley and is well on the way to Gloucester.
Ankles and knees are holding up and as long as they keep going, so will Sue. Her husband is walking most of the way with her, but she’s longing to be able to walk with other Accomplish supporters when restrictions lift.
