City Hospice’s Two Week Challenge “Take a Walk in My Shoes” attracts another walker
Laura Myatt is walking 10,000 steps per day for 14 days to support City Hospice’s “Take a Walk in My Shoes” campaign.
Laura tells us:
“I’m taking part in this challenge and supporting City Hospice as its my local hospice. Having a friend who works on the team has given me a great insight into all the amazing work they. It’s incredible the difference they make with their small team. But that doesn’t come easy. I’ve also seen the amount of hard work they put into raising vital funds. COVID19 has had a big impact on their fundraising. Therefore, I feel it is important I get involved in this two week challenge and help as much as I can! I also want to support their Recovery Fund.
I really enjoy walking, but have not always made this a priority. Work can often take over and I end-up working long days, staring into the laptop all day. This challenge will ensure I give myself a break, keep me occupied and also active! I just hope the weather is good to me. This will give me a good focus over the next two weeks when times like this are tough on us all.
I hope I raise £150 and can Donate a Day as I would really like to cover the cost of nursing care on a day that means something to me. If I can raise more that would be amazing – I will try my best!”
