102 Miles of Cotswolds Fun in 7 Days!

102 Miles of Cotswolds Fun in 7 Days!

Three generations of women will lead a 102 mile walk starting on Saturday, along the Cotswolds Way in support of Asthma UK’s Annual Fundraising Week.

Lucy and Colleen Gawthorpe and Amelie Marples (aged 2) will don their walking boots and begin a trek with other members of the family and the local cricket team…. all the way from Chipping Camden to Bath.  102 Miles of Fun!

Lucy, from Gedling in Nottingham, explains why, “Three people die from Asthma each day and we wanted to collect some money for Asthma UK so that they can raise awareness of how everyday risks, like not paying attention to worsening symptoms, can lead to a fatal asthma attack. In the East Midlands, everyone knows someone who suffers and we want to help”

Colleen, Lucy’s Granny adds

“To date we have raised £900 and we are aiming to raise at least another £500.  If people support us it will make the blisters worthwhile.  We intend to write an entertaining blog along the route to keep those who have donated up to date on our progress”

Of course, we may have to stop at a couple of hostelries along the way for refreshments, but we have a positive mental attitude and we will achieve our goal of 102 Miles and £1500 to help Asthma UK during their Annual Fundraising Week”.

Amelie Marples, from Shoreham by Sea, said

“Go Granny Gawthorpe, Go”

Three Nottinghamshire Village Cricketers will lead a 102 mile walk starting on Saturday, along the Cotswolds Way in support of Asthma UK’s Annual Fundraising Week.

Jason Catchpole, Tony Beck and Pete Gawthorpe are long standing members of Beeston and Toton Sycamore Cricket Club but this weekend they will swap their cricket boots for walking boots and trek all the way from Chipping Camden to Bath.  102 Miles of Fun!

Tony Beck, Nottingham Accountant and Ace Bowler explains why, “Three people die from Asthma each day and we wanted to collect some money for Asthma UK so that they can raise awareness of how everyday risks, like not paying attention to worsening symptoms, can lead to a fatal asthma attack. In the East Midlands, everyone knows someone who suffers and we want to help”

Pete Gawthorpe, local Bobby and Class Bat adds, “To date we have raised £900 and we are aiming to raise at least another £500.  If people support us it will make the blisters worthwhile.  We intend to write an entertaining blog along the route to keep those who have donated up to date on our progress”

Jason Catchpole, Electrician and wily Wicket Keeper said, “Of course, we may have to stop at a couple of hostelries along the way for refreshments, but we have a positive mental attitude and we will achieve our goal of 102 Miles and £1500 to help Asthma UK during their Annual Fundraising Week”.

The Change Directors and friends of Gawthorpe Management Associates start the walk from Chipping Campden on Saturday 4 May and we finish the walk in Bath on the Friday 11 May and we will stay overnight in Bath (without an R) before heading back for some of the walkers to play cricket on the Saturday afternoon.

We are supporting Asthma UK in recognition of my lovely brother, Paul, who died many years ago because of the disease.  43 years later and Asthma is still as prevalent today as it was then and we want to support continued research!

Friends and family, Pete, Tom, Catchy, Tony, Dawn, Colleen and Donnyare doing the whole walk of over 100 miles and are already in practice. Cousins, Sarah and Tim have already signed up and have bagged a good room at the White Hart, Winchcombe.  Alex, Carrie and the girls are also staying in cottages at Sudeley and Owlpen and will be doing some walking when youngsters allow.  Lucy and I will join in the walks where we can as well as ferry people about, cook dinner and generally organise things etc.
