Walking Home for Christmas

Sorry for a lack of posts at the moment but we have been practicing our walking skills! Me and my daughter Jenny are taking part in Walking Home For Christmas.  We are walking home from Canterbury to Hamstreet on 20 December 2018 a distance of 23.5 miles.  So that we can finish before midnight (hopefully).

By taking part in the #WalkingHomeForChristmas campaign, I'm giving hope to veterans and their families who are struggling this Christmas by supporting programmes run by Walking With The Wounded and Help for Heroes which tackle key issues such as mental health and unemployment.
This a cause that is very close to my heart having been a civilian in the REME and having family and friends who have needed help since leaving the services. Any donation is a good donation, so head to: http://www.walkinghomeforchristmas.com/users/nicky-godden and send any spare change my way!
If everyone could afford just 10p it would make a big difference to someone’s life.
How your money helps: Each step you…
