Making a Difference – One Step at a Time!

A couple of weeks ago Jan Telford (Traveleads Business Administration Manager) announced her ambitious decision to walk across the bay in aid of Reubens Retreat. Today we catch up with her to find out if she managed to complete the challenge, and to find out more about her efforts.
“Well Folks, I completed the walk on Saturday, although not quite as I expected!!” Jan told us. “I got a call late on Friday night to say that the tides were far too dangerous to attempt a walk across the bay – all weekend walks across were cancelled. As you can imagine I was really disappointed until I discovered there was another reason for the call. They were ringing to me tell me to bring walking boots instead of beach shoes …they had a plan B !!!
I left home at 6.30am on Saturday morning and arrived in plenty of time at Arnside. When I saw the water I realised it would have been incredibly dangerous to walk across, there was a lot of it and it was moving very fast!! So, we did a land walk up and over Arnside instead. With fantastic views of the bay we covered a similar distance – except with a lot more mud!! I met some lovely people and have a few photos to share with you.
I would like to say THANK YOU very much to everyone who supported me and for all the kind donations!! I raised a total of £444.00 which with gift aid increased the amount the charity recieved to £555.00!!”
We would like to say a HUGE well done to Jan, it goes without saying we are all incredibly proud of you!
