The amazing Roz Corpson’s walking marathon. Rita has set up a JustGiving page for Roz & Lottie so please have a look and tell people about this, it has a great photo of Roz and explains all about the marathon and what the money raised is for. They’ve had £110 donations on it already!

Below are the proposed timings of the route, although I gather these will be flexible to some extent. It would be lovely if Butterflies or C’Siders were able to walk along with Roz for a little way, to give her encouragement, or even just meet up with her at the watering holes. We will all benefit from the money she is raising so it would be nice to show our appreciation.
