My title Walk of Love Begins … – Elizabeth's Footprint

Walk of Love Begins …

Finally, Natalia’s ‘Walk of Love’ begins as she sets off at midday today from Durdle Door, Dorset on her epic 5,000 mile walk around the Coast of Britain to raise £100,000 for the Wallace & Gromit Grand Appeal for Bristol Children’s Hospital in memory of her fun-loving, mischievious, five year-old daughter, Elizabeth who sadly is no longer with us.

It’s a cold and cloudy start to her journey, in Durdle Door, West Lulworth with the temperature around 5c but feeling more like 0c with an 18 mph north easterly breeze blowing, the  forecast is to brighten up this afternoon around 3pm-5pm when the sun is expected to pop through the cloud.

_DSC4623The start of a journey that will probably take a year on foot, taking in some breath-taking scenery of the British Coastline in all winds and weathers from today’s chilly start, to the beautiful, balmy summer days and evenings later in the year, she will get to see and meet loads people over the coming year, will that be YOU?

We shall be joining her on parts of her journey face-to-face to talk to her, to talk to her followers and of course to offer love and support to this truly remarkable woman. I met Natalia for the first time a little over a month ago, and WOW what a journey so far, a determined lady that has set herself a goal to help others by walking to raise money for her chosen charity in memory of Elizabeth, The Wallace & Gromit Grand Appeal.

Please check back here, her fund-raising website for regular updates, also share her Facebook posts and Twitter feeds, in doing so you will help keep Elizabeth’s memory alive and Natalia’s goal achieveable to raise £100,000 for the charity, which today has already raised nearly £8,000 in just two weeks since the official launch!
