Challenge Completed!

Well my wonderful friends, I’m home. Stiff, achy and a couple of blisters that are my reminders of what I’ve done. It is a big achievement for me, not only in the distance walked, which the app showed was a further 13 miles yesterday, so 27 miles in all, not 24, but for the support you have all given me and the donations, which are still coming in. It would appear between the 45 walkers just over £4000.00 has been raised – of which you good people have so far donated £1035.00 towards BREAKTHROUGH. How brilliant is that! We were very fortunate that the weather held out for us and thank goodness it wasn’t today. With more beautiful scenery around us I did take it a bit slower with a need for foot repair around lunch time. As we neared the end I suddenly hit a wall and my legs just didn’t want to move but some supportive other walkers soon gathered round and helped me get focused again. With their help and the lovely comments from your messages running through my head I managed to get on the move again and cover those last two miles. Sandringham never looked so good – shame Liz and Philip weren’t about but there were many other well wishers to see us over the line. In fact many donations were given by people we passed whilst on the walk. It’s incredible to see just how this touches so many people. In fact, we have received word that a neighbour of my Mum and good friend was diagnosed last week and starts treatment this week. Our thoughts are with you Joan. But without all of you kind hearted, generous people I would never have been able to have put so much into this wonderful charities funding. Thank you all for your support both monetary and in messages. It does give you faith in people around you. And should you still wish to contribute my Just Giving site is still up and running justgiving.com/June-Burrell (just click on this link to be taken to the site) with the donations board, together with photo’s still present in the cattery.

Thank you, one very humbled June x

    Huge congratulations to you June, you should feel very proud – no doubt the blisters will remind you of what you achieved – no pain, no gain. Xx
