This time next week we’ll be undertaking the final few miles into Ypres and looking forward to a cold beer. We woke up this morning to the fantastic news that we’ve hit our fundraising target of £2,500. A particularly generous Brother of Alder Tree Lodge No.9289 made a significant personal donation which contributed hugely to our total and for that we are extremely grateful.

This weekend is all about getting the kit together including stuff like spare laces, zinc-oxide tape, charging packs for the phones and so on. Ceri has put together the med-kit (handy having a paramedic as a sister), I think it’ll see us through!

The weather forecast is looking perfect for walking, not too hot and not too sunny. If it stays as predicted it will be great.

Thank you all again for your generosity, we really do appreciate it and you can be assured ABF The Soldier’s Charity will put your money to very good use. We’re intending to update this blog each evening so check back to see how we’re doing.
