Over the August Bank Holiday Weekend we will be walking over 100 miles from Brighton Pier to Broadstairs Pier in aid of some really great causes! 
Each day we will walk (and maybe even run) over 30 miles.
On Day 1 we will begin at Brighton Pier and follow the coast as much as we can stopping for the night at Bexhill On Sea. 
On Day 2 we will make our way from East Sussex back to our home county of Kent resting for the night at Dymchurch. 
The final day will be our longest stretch at over 33 miles. Walking through much more familiar surroundings we will finish on Monday evening at Broadstairs Pier!!!
We are so excited to work together to raise as much money as we can for our chosen charities as well as putting ourselves to the test.
We really appreciate your support and know that any donations received will make a difference to each of the charities!  
Thanks... and wish us luck! :-/ xxx


Kent MS Therapy Centre 
The aim of the Kent MS Therapy Centre is to improve the quality of life for people with Multiple Sclerosis, their families and those who care for them. Being diagnosed with MS can be a very demoralising experience and many people turn to the Centre for support.  The Centre provides advice, information and practical therapies such as hyperbaric oxygen therapy, hydrotherapy, physiotherapy, counselling, body massage and reflexology to name a few. Specialist clinics and symptom management workshops are also held on a regular basis.  Opened in 1985 the Centre offers a warm and caring environment for people of all ages and their relatives and friends. It is funded almost entirely by voluntary contributions, with MS patients themselves making a small contribution towards their therapies. The Centre is completely self suporting and receives no support from the Government or NHS whatsoever despite its obvious key role in the community. 
Welcome to Pilgrims Hospices
Pilgrims Hospices is a charity providing specialist palliative care free of charge to people in east Kent. We care for people with illnesses that can not be cured including cancer, heart failure, respiratory conditions and neurological diseases.
Care is provided from the three sites in Canterbury, Ashford and Thanet, in patients homes and via community programmes. Support is also extended to families and carers. To keep delivering care to those that need it the most. Pilgrims has to raise £11 million each year from our local community, so fundraising is very important.
 Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust
Nearly 3 women a day will die from cervical cancer whilst each year around 2,800 women are newly diagnosed, facing an uncertain future.  In addition, some 300,000 women a year are told they may have a cervical abnormality that might require treatment.

Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust is the UK’s only charity dedicated to women, their families and friends affected by cervical abnormalities and cervical cancer. It was established by James Maxwell following the death of his wife, Jo (aged 40) from cervical cancer in 1999.
We exist to ensure women never feel alone at all stages of their journey by providing a range online and face to face support 24 hours a day including:
1. Enabling women to meet online, to share experiences and support others facing similar challenges
2. Proving opportunities for women, friends and families to meet face to face for shared support
3. Providing information about cervical cancer and abnormalities written and reviewed by experts
4. Enabling individuals to send a medical question to our online panel of medical experts
5. Campaigning to influence UK Governments to implement new and improved preventative, diagnostic and therapeutic procedures
6. Running a range of programmes to educate the public and health professionals on key areas relating to cervical cancer and how it can be prevented.
