185 Mile Fifteen-Day Dog Walk Along the Thames

185 Mile Fifteen-Day Dog Walk Along the Thames I have now walked the Thames from Barrier to Head in 15 days with 15 dogs!
When I undertook to do the walk I assumed I could do it, but I didn’t actually know. After the first 5 days I was seriously concerned that while the spirit was willing, various bits of my body were less so. In the event, everything held up and all the clichéd-but nonetheless entirely valid-consequences applied…nothing ventured nothing gained, no pain no gain, and a real sense of achievement!I set a highly ambitious target of £15,000, hoping that I might be able to raise £5-8k through my own connections and that the balance might be achieved through the Tailster network and it to some degree going viral.Writing this 10 days after finishing, we have raised £11,609 including gift aid and I know there is more to come.

As things turned out, we didn’t manage to penetrate wider audiences, so I am fantastically grateful to all friends and acquaintances who have given so much. Given £4k already raised from other sources, we will be able to get the charity off the ground.
Thankyou.
