400 Miles North

We have recently been contacted by writer Hannah Stuart-Leach to help her with her charity challenge “400 Miles North” and were happy to oblige. Please read below to find out from Hannah about her plans.

“As a writer for inflight magazines, I spend a fair amount of time on planes. Whilst I love the thrill of taking to the skies, whizzing half way round the world in a matter of hours, I thought it was about time I tried a slower sort of travel. What does long distance really feel like, using nothing but your own two feet?

This March, I will find out, as I walk 400 Miles North through England, Scotland and Wales. Thankfully, since I have a terrible sense of direction, I will be guided by Satmap’s Active 12 device through the varied terrains of Great Britain, from wild moorland to inner city streets.

Along the way I will also visit projects run by the three excellent charities my walk is raising funds for: Magic Breakfast, which delivers nutritious morning meals to children who arrive at school hungry and unable to concentrate; Child Poverty Action Group (CPAG) which campaigns to end child poverty in the UK; and Alzheimer’s Society, which offers invaluable support to those living with the disease and their families.

You can follow my month-long journey on Twitter @400milesnorth and Facebook (www.facebook.com/400milesnorth), and donate via http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/400MilesNorth.”
