Walk for Life on behalf of Terrence Higgins Trust: My Story


Photo: Me part-way through the Walk

On Sunday 8 June 2014, I did the Terrence Higgins Trust (THT)’s Walk for Life, a fundraiser for their Hardship Fund.

Walk for Life is the Terrence Higgins Trust's annual 10km sponsored walk around Central London. All funds raised from Walk for Life goes towards their Hardship Fund, which provides vital grants for people living with HIV in severe financial need.

This year's fancy dress theme was "Heroes, Heroines and Villains". When I was a little girl I always wanted to be a Witch when I grew up, so I realised my childhood ambition and did the Walk as a Witch!

It was a glorious sunny day on the day of the Walk, I completed the 10km in about 3 hours, and my fundraising total currently stands at £310 (£370 including Gift Aid).

I am more than happy with that :) Thank you to everyone for their best wishes, their support and their sponsorship.
