MS Walk 2016 – Mission Successful

MS Walk 2016

This weekend a group of intrepid friends and I tackled the 20km MS Walk around London to raise money in support of the MS Society.  Wouldn’t you know – we raised over £1,000!

As previously posted, a group of us took to the surprisingly sun-kissed streets of London this past weekend to take part in the annual ‘MS Walk’. A fun charity event where you follow a route through the streets of the capital at your own pace, walking your socks off to raise money for the MS Society. The MS Society are the organisation leading the fight against Multiple Sclerosis. We would like to thank everyone who donated money to the cause, and your support really helped us complete the challenge.

We all had a great time and felt totally exhausted towards the end, not just from the event, but also the travelling involved getting to the start area in Battersea Park.

I’ve never been to Battersea Park before, and what a lovely park it is! Lots of autumn leaves blanketing the fields, and squirrels hopping from tree to tree teasing all the dogs being walked.

Our route took us along the Thames, over the Millennium Bridge twice and around St. Pauls Cathedral. Then onto the Tower Of London, over the Tower Bridge and along the South Bank. We stopped a few times for refreshments and eventually completed the challenge after around 5 hours!

We met lots of MS Walk volunteers along the way who cheered us on and helped keep on the right path.

MS Walk London 2016

MS Walk London 2016

I have volunteered to walk 20km’s through the streets of London alongside a fantastic group of friends and one special unicorn, to raise awareness and support for those fighting against MS.

Not very long ago, a good friend of mine was diagnosed with MS. Around 100,000 people in the UK endure this condition which affects the central nervous system, and when diagnosed, will accompany that person for life.

Leading up to, and after her diagnosis, this friend has stood head-to-toe with this disease and never taken a step back. To see her tackle MS with such bravery, dignity, and to always be the most optimistic person in the room  is inspiring. Her partner also needs a special mention as we know he will be there beside her every step of the way.


You can help by donating easily and securely at my Just Giving Page and support the Multiple Sclerosis Society lead the charge against this disease.


On the 25th September 2016, I undertake a 20km MS Walk through the streets of London alongside her a band of awesome friends to promote awareness of MS, and to raise money to the Multiple Sclerosis Society. The Multiple Sclerosis Society lead the charge in supporting those affected and searching for a cure.

Please visit my Just Giving Page and donate what you can. Thank you.
