Here is another way you can support Martin House...

My colleague Alan Taylor sent me this message this morning.

"Hi Chris, Thought i'd drop you an email to let you know what myself and a couple of friends are planning for this June. We are going to do a sponsored walk in aid of Martin House. But not just any old walk in the woods! No, this is going to be a proper walk, an incredible 84 miles over 5 days. Ok ok, most experienced walkers wouldn't blink at that distance but we shall be dressed as authentic Roman Legionnaires (with a few added comforts, such as walking boots and flasks). We have got our armour and helmets and it does weight around 12kilo's! As you have probably guessed by now, we shall be following the route of Hadrians wall, starting in Wallsend and finishing in Bowness on Solway. We hope you can support us in walk. we have set up a blog site, which you can visit at :

The aim is to raise a thousand pounds initially, tho we believe we should be able to hit higher targets. If you can pass the word, to people you know, that would be a brilliant way of raising the profile and donations! Cheers, Alan."

This is a brilliant way to get some exercise and at the same time support Martin House. I hope colleagues will support Alan in this wonderful walk to raise money for some very special children and their families.
