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!”

Neil Davies, Community Fundraiser said:

“Thank you so much for taking on this challenge Laura, we are so grateful for your support. We’ve had such a fantastic response to this challenge. It’s great that our supporters are able to get involved, support us and use this as focus over the next couple of weeks! We wish you all the luck with your challenge and fundraising, I’m sure you will reach your goal.”
