Admin, please remove if not appropriate.
I have a 5 month old grandaughter Millie, who is in and out of hospital due to a heart problem which is controlled through medication.
The Musgrove park hospital childrens ward nurses and staff do a wonderful job for the kids, some have even given their time free when things have been busy.
One time when Millie was unwell i asked the hospital if i could bring a musical mobile to put above Millies cot. I was told "Yes, no problem. We used to supply them but they`ve all been taken by vacating parents"
How heartless is that?
Over the last two weeks i`ve been thinking i want to give something back to the hospital.
I`m going to do a sponsored walk along the Bridgwater and Taunton canal. The canal begins at the docks in Bridgwater and ends at Firepool lock in Taunton, a distance of fourteen and a half miles. I`ll be walking it there and back, a distance of twenty nine miles. It will happen on the 29th August 2010 at around 8.30 am.
My lurcher Sox will walk some of it with me.
I`ll be having a few sponsor forms made and a "just giving" site set up.
Thanks for reading this.
