When me and Sue decided to do a sponsored walk in our pyjamas to raise money for the national autistic society I wasn’t sure that we would raise any money atall. I set our target on virgin money giving as £100.
But people really came through , especially the good people of twitter and so far we have raised £221 so far which I’m very proud of.
Every little bit of money raised makes a difference.
We set off in our pyjamas at noon today … Funnily enough we had bought the same pyjama tops.
We decided to walk to through and around Wimbledon common as its a lovely walk.
We walked , we talked , it was lovely , Sue lives in Yorkshire so we only see each other a couple of times a year when she comes to London to stay with her family , so it was really nice to have a kid free afternoon together just walking and talking ( and raising money at the same time )
We even braved the ” facilities ” which if you’ve ever been to the windmill you will know is not a pleasant thing
Sues mum met us at the windmill with sues boys , to give us a little halfway support.
Then we headed back.
We walked for 3 hours.
It was a lovely way to spend an afternoon and to raise money for such a good cause at the same time.
We are going to plan the same thing for next year but we would like to get more people involved , joining in.
I’m proud of us both and I’m very grateful to everyone that had sponsored us.
It’s not too late to sponsor us , this is our link
this afternoon I walked for autism !
