Tyne & Wear Branch Walk to D’feet MND 2017 – Annual Sponsored Walk
UPDATE: The final total raised for this year’s walk is an £2626.75! Many congratulations and thanks to everyone involved!
On Sunday 11 June, on an overcast but warm Sunday morning 34 hardy souls and several dogs set off on the Tyne & Wear annual Walk to d’feet sponsored walk at Newburn Riverside Park. This 6 mile walk starts at Newburn and ambles along the river bank and onto the waggon way to Wylam where we stop for a picnic lunch then back to Newburn.
At the half way point at Wylam Riverside Park we stopped for a picnic lunch and a well-earned rest. The very rain made brief appearance but it soon stopped. I’m not quite sure the ice cream van was ready for the custom he had but I’m sure he didn’t complain!
The walk back was completed by all and a well-deserved pat on the back for all who completed the walk!
The final total is £2626.75!!!
