My target 60 mi

I'm fundraising for a great cause!

Out of every 100 people in the UK, how many do you think live with a disability? The answer is 22. More than one in five. Join me in helping Henshaws offer support, advice and training to enable these people and their families to build skills, develop confidence, help each other and look forward to a more positive future.

I’ve accepted this challenge to help change lives. Please make a donation to support my challenge. Thank you so much!

 last day day day of my challenge completing my why 60 miles. Beautiful sunny day. A few difficulties with finding footpaths put overall all a really good day out. Thank you to all all my sponsors who have helped towards raising money for henshaws

de4 Smithills Egerton Turton HeightsDunscar 10.5 miles

Friday 25th Sep
Discovered some new footpaths on my journey today day in an area that I'm very familiar with. It's always nice to find new corners of an area you know well. I had a little bit of entertainment with 2 horses which chores to join me for a snack. Having convinced the ringleader de4 that he would not like banana he probably knocked over my coffee and began to search my pockets. I offered him an apple instead which he seemed to enjoy.

This has been a really enjoyable week up to now. And a really big thank you to everybody who has made contributions until meeting to the Henshall 100 fundraising. Because really Lee that is the real purpose of this journey.

Day 3 3. Cat Show Clough head Entwistle 12 miles

Wednesday 23rd Sep
Today turn into a bit of an adventure. It has been a very difficult route to follow. Much of it over wild Moorland. And then soon after I've passed Clough head and all Hey Reservoir my phone died. the screen just went blank. I was in an area of the moors I did not know and the mist was coming down. Why do I get myself into these situations. so no map no way of communicating with others. Just a bit risky particularly when you have virtually no Vision. Well I used a bit of common sense and followed the path until I thought I need to be heading down. Eventually I could hear the faint sound of traffic and just made my way downwards finally arriving at a farm ma. A very kind lady phone home for me me and I was able to continue my journey along the road. It turned out I wasn't too much out of my way but it could have been so different. I do rather like an adventure

Day 2. Tockholes Darwen Tower cadshaw tockholes 10 miles

Tuesday 22nd Sep
My henshaws 100 challenge has helped me to get back out walking after 6-months of doing very little. to be honest I'd lost a lot of confidence in going out because of of the social restrictions this year ear.

 it is increasingly difficult for me to navigate using maps on my phone but I can still do it. And for that I am extremely grateful. Walking poles help me balance over rough terrain. It can be done and the henshaws challenge is an example for us all to challenge ourselves.
 what a great days walk this was in September sunshine with my mate Lenny and his dog Rosie.
