Hi, my name is Lesley.  I am a mother to nine children, though, my twins Archie and Alfie were born prematurely and did not survive! I am also a Bam-Bam to nine grandchildren.  My eldest grandson could not say Grandma - And so Bam-Bam I am!! I am working for EDF energy as a tour guide.  This was something completley new to me. I have learned so very much, not just about my place of work, but about myself too.  I am also a fully qualified fitness and swimming instructor.  I have taught hundreds of children to swim, and a few adults too! I am planning to use my skills as a fitness instructor to help me raise money for the charity I am fund raising for, so WATCH this space!  I am always up for a challenge and like to make a difference, so what a better combination than to mix the two together and challenge myself to walk 65 miles to help make a difference to someone's life. The charity I am fund raising for has been nominated by the company I work for, EDF energy, it's Breast Cancer Now.

Event details

Isle of Wight challenge charity fundraising

I will be walking round the Isle of Wight over a two day period.  This is something I have NEVER done before.  I have started my training and I am surprised at how much it hurts to walk the same distance as I can run!! (I am only up to 15 miles at the moment, and I haven't run further than that.....but, by Jove it does hurt!!)  I do have company of me old mucca Zingy.  Me and Zings, as I like to call him, will be seen together either through pictures or keep an eye out for us!!  I also do a bit of cross training which Zings will  accompanying me and I will have photographic evidence, even a vid maybe, of us doing our thang!!!.  Like I said earlier, there will also be photographic and video evidence of how I plan to get some of you to help me raise money for this very worthy cause.  Actually can't wait! Bring it on!!!
