Inspired by Capt Sir Tom Moore’s epic fund raising earlier this year, the Chairman of The Royal Society of St George, Joanna Cadman 67 accompanied by 76 year old member Rosemary Holland will walk 20 miles a day to and from the Hospital in Guildford from the Medical Centre in Cranleigh to help NHS Charities Together. The walk starts on Monday 26th October then each day until Friday of that week. The team name is ‘Sixes and Sevens’.

The start – 9:00am 26th October 2020
Starting on the Downs Link path (former railway line) at Cranleigh on their way to Guildford
Day 2 – a very wet day!!
The former railway station for Bramley & Wonersh made a useful place for the back-up team and ‘sixes & sevens’ to meet roughly half way between Cranleigh and the Royal Surrey County Hospital at Guildford. What made it more convenient is the fact that a car park is alongside this stopping place.
At the start of the fourth day of the fund raising walk, HM Lord Lieutenant of Surrey, Michael More-Molyneux, met our intrepid team, Sixes & Sevens at the Cranleigh Medical Centre to give them a rousing send off. He said “Delighted to have the opportunity to send off the Sixes & Sevens on a wet Thursday morning. These wonderful ladies are completing twenty miles each day in wet and muddy conditions to support our wonderful NHS.”
At the end of the last day on Friday, 100 miles achieved now resting with sore feet and legs, team ‘sixes & sevens’ enjoy a well earned dinner.
A big thank you to all who have donated and to others, well they have proved they can do it, it was tough going at times with rain and some evening dark walking but they came through. So please if you have not given, why not go to https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/TheRoyalSocietyofStGeorge, to help swell the amount for NHS Charities Together. Most of us have reasons to be grateful to the front line NHS staff, so when donating please bear in mind what they had done for you, your relatives and friends. We are still aiming for £5000 but have some way to go yet. Every little will help, so do help Joanna and Rosemary to reach their target.
