Walking for Charity

The time is ten-thirty, the place is Top Locks, Runcorn, UK. The intrepid walkers are (l to r): Bill Gibson, Gill Gordon-Farleigh and Alan Watson, who between them have a combined age of just over 170 years. I put that bit in because whenever the local newspapers report anything about an individual they always have to put the age in brackets after their name.

This pic was taken at the starting point of a two-and-a-half hour walk to raise much needed funds for two charities, Claire House, which is a children's hospice on the Wirral, and Voice Ministries, publishers of the freely distributed magazine, The Voice Christian News & Views.

The walk will take them along a good stretch of the Bridgewater Canal between Top Locks, Runcorn and the Preston Brook Marina a few miles away. It was good to see that yesterday's rain has blown away, and so it should be a pleasant walk to do. I had looked forward to going on it myself, but unfortunately I am somewhat unwell at present (hence not many blog entries over the last week or so).
