Hove to Brighton Marina… and back!
We are being sponsored by ACH Care Homes.
Our day started off wet and windy but the sun came out eventually. We had 66 people walking including some children. Their was four young adults with Alternating Hemiplegia taking part, Natalie, Lizzie, Joanne and Lucie.
ACH donated our T-Shirts and we all wore them with pride. Many people stopped us during the walk to ask about the condition so not only did we raise money we raised awareness of the condition as well.
It was a great success and we raised more than was expected. ACH Care Homes donated a lovely cheque to our girls in the garden of Cloverdale House after our BBQ. We would like to thank all the staff and members of Cloverdale and Bridgewater House for all their hard work and efforts into making the day such a great success and raising so much money for our group.
We had many friends and family sponsors including Biggin Hill & Westerham Lions Club. They quoted ‘We were delighted to sponsor Lizzie in her sponsored walk with The Alternating Hemiplegic Support Group. We are always keen to help young people who raise money for charity or undertake charity work and as Lizzie is known to us the daughter of one of our members it was an easy decision to sponsor her (even though, to be honest, most of us know very little about the condition). It is perhaps one of the strong points of Lions Clubs, that they support small charities who do not have the resources (or name) to raise, on their own, the funds they need to carry on their work.
