Wylam Waggon Way Sponsored Walk – 10 June 2018

The annual MND Walk to D’feet took place on Sunday 10th June 2018.  It was a gloriously hot morning when we all met down at the Riverside Park at Newburn.

There was a good number of patients, their families and friends and not to forget the regular faces and the numerous dogs set off on the walk to Wylam.

As always the atmosphere was good with a lot of chatter and good humour as we walked along the riverside then up on to the waggon way.  Once we reached Wylam we stopped for a breather and our picnic lunch.  There was a murmur of discontent from the walks as for the first time in 8 years the ice cream van didn’t turn up!  However we all got over this and after a short break headed back to Newburn and onwards home.

Then it happened!!  20 minutes from home the heavens opened!! Luckily many of the front walkers had managed to get back to their cars before this happened but for those of us at the back a right royal soaking was on the cards!!!! We might have been soaked through but it didn’t dampen our spirits and a good time was had by all.

At present the sponsorship total stands at £2997.55 I will update this once all the sponsor money has been received.

Once again a HUGE BIG THANK YOU to everyone who took part and their supporters!
