That is it, Pip (Paul Pipkin) has got the bags ready and the boots too...On Monday
10th Aug it will be John O’Groats to Watten.
Why is Pip doing this?
“My wife was diagnosed 9 years ago with MS. We, like many other couples, have had to acknowledge, accept (albeit reluctantly) and adapt to the illness.
Four years ago I was in the position to give time to do a yearly charity walk. My chosen Charity goes without saying. I have trekked Wainwright’s C2C, Offa’s Dyke and last year Ravensglass to Robin Hood’s bay. All trips were over 12 days and about 200 miles each. This year I am doing the “End to End”, John O’Groats to Lands End and not only that I want to do it in 46 days! My trek will begin on 10 August 2015 and finish on 23 September 2015.
I am planning to blog as I go and will be launching a YouTube page, so you can follow the pain and suffering and the daily highlight’s that will be encountered along the way. The pages will be live soon so watch this space for the details. Please tell your friend’s family and strangers in the street about this event, why watch an idiot abroad on TV, when there is one in the UK doing a trek for charity.
There will be fun, laughter and tears. I hope that you will join me on my trek throughout the United Kingdom and find it in your hearts to donate to MS Research, my chosen charity, follow my trek online if you can.”

Pip's wife Debbie, who has MS, is ready for all this to commence and will follow the trail of the team. She will only be able to see him when he reaches Thornbury. If you are interested in knowing more or supporting Paul please call please call 0117 958 6986 or contact email@example.com.
