Jazz & Sapphire Meet Margaret

P300910_11.33

Hello all, when I took the K9 Marshal Crew out this morning for their daily walk we met up with a nice Lady and her friend who are doing a sponsored walk with her dogs. She set of on Saturday Morning from Llangollen heading to the other end of the Llangollen canal and then doing a big loop around on two or three other canals and finishing off the walk back on the Llangollen canal in Llangollen itself a total distance of 500 miles! She is doing the walk in memory of her son who died of Leukaemia aged just 16 years old and trying to raise money for Leukaemia Research. Her name is Margaret Mason from Pwlleli in north Wales.  Jazz, Sapphire and myself said that when she gets back near Ellesmere if she needs a bit of company for a good part of the journey back to Llangollen to give us a call and well go and walk with her .She will have a look on the Bedlington Blog when she gets time.

Thank you Ian 500 miles is a very very long way and walking all day in what might be bad weather just miserable. If you can do keep us updated on her progress. Does Margaret have an address for donations?
