Raising money for Service By Emergency & Suffolk Mind

Let’s take a walk

What is Walk4Greg?

In memory of my husband Greg Kingston, I am taking on the Lands End to John O’Groats virtual challenge.

Over the coming months I will be walking and running my way virtually up the country, covering 1,084 miles, with the aim of crossing the finishing line in October on what would have been Greg’s 50th Birthday.

My chosen
charities

SERV Suffolk & Cambridgeshire also known as the Bloodrunners, provides essential services to local NHS hospitals and the Air Ambulance, by transporting urgently needed blood products and other medical supplies. The charity is run by volunteers and is self-funded, with no government support.

Greg’s passion for the cause was made ever more poignant, knowing he received several blood transfusions following his accident.

Suffolk Mind wants to make Suffolk the best place in the world for talking about and taking care of mental health. A self-funded organisation, Suffolk Mind provide a range of services from counselling and education to helplines and supported housing.

When my world was ripped from me, my mental health suffered immeasurably, so this cause is very close to my heart.

Total raised so far: £1,057

Greg loved nothing more than going for a walk and discovering new places.

One of the last films we watched together was Wild, chronicling one woman’s one thousand- and one-hundred-mile solo hike along the Pacific Crest Trail. Greg’s typical reaction was to add hiking the Pyrenees to our bucket list. I said couldn’t we start with Lands End to John O’Groats.

So here I am Greg doing this for you, it may be virtual, but everyone must start somewhere.
