I had really wanted to do the North Norfolk Coast walk for a year or so, and thought it would be nice if I used it to fundraise for charity.
I had visited some care homes with L4A previously as a volunteer, helping with activities and storytelling. During these visits I had seen the difference it makes to older people’s lives, and how it makes them feel involved. It had also been a worthwhile experience for me, and so I decided to use L4A as my chosen charity.
I made a justgiving account, and the setting up was as simple as selecting the charity on the justgiving webpage, then updating it every so often. This also meant donations went straight to the charity, making the process hassle free.
The walk itself was a real struggle, and a test of endurance, but it felt like a great achievement when it was finished. Hopefully the blisters wear off soon!
