Charity Walk 2013
12/09/2013 15:20:00

Despite the rain, I was joined by 18 people for my annual 18-mile charity walk around the borders of my constituency on Sunday 8th September.

However, due to severe illness I sadly was personally unable to complete the walk on Sunday, though around 10 people persevered and finished in about 7 hours.

I resumed the walk today and managed to complete it in about 6.5 hours.

I was joined on the walk by some inspirational volunteers from Croydon Visual, a superb local charity supporting the blind and visually-impaired in the borough. I want to thank everyone who came along and everyone who supported the walk to date.

So far we’ve raised over £2,700, a huge achievement for such a great local cause that makes the sore legs worth it.

If you’re able to donate, please visit www.justgiving.com/gavinbarwellmp.

Along the way today I tweeted my progress, I've collected a few of the tweets below for your amusement!

Commenting on my blog

I welcome readers' comments on my blog. Unfortunately, sometimes people go too far and use blog sites to post comments which are abusive or defamatory to third parties. For this reason, your comments, posted using the form on this page, don't appear until they have been moderated, to make sure that they don't cross that line.

My policy is that I will always let comments appear from people who disagree with me, in a spirit of promoting reasoned debate. However, I will not allow comments to be posted which are defamatory to someone else, or which are racist, sexist, homophobic or otherwise likely to fail a 'public decency' test.

Consequently, there may be some hours delay after you post your comment until it appears on the public pages.
