END TO END – WITH LOVE

End to End - Author Lorraine GeorgeThis book tells the story of four years in the life of an ordinary mum (Lorraine George).  It’s a book from the heart, that attempts to record and share what it is like to find your life out of control.

“End to End – with love. x” is a journey through the eyes of a mum, as her youngest son faces a life threatening illness.  Alongside this runs an account of her journey, literally from the end to end of Britain, on a bike!

The Foundation’s aims are:-

  1. To provide practical and/or financial support to young people with life threatening or
    terminal illnesses.
  2. To provide financial support to young people who demonstrate exceptional commitment
    and/or ability in the worlds of sport or performing arts but may be held back by their financial situation from pursuing their goals.

Rob’s Big Walk 2020

Rob's Big Walk 2020

20th June 2020 - 21st June 2020
All Day

The Essex Way is a way-marked 81-mile long walk, starting in Epping in the southwest, crossing the Dedham Vale and Constable country, finishing at the port of Harwich on the Stour estuary.

It passes through ancient woodlands, open farmland, tree-lined river valleys and leafy green lanes, unveiling historic towns and villages along the way. Follow the poppies……………..

Calling Local Businesses, Groups of friends, individuals and Clubs………

  • We have divided the 81-mile Essex way into 10 sections.
  • There will be a check-in at each start/end point with directions for walkers, emergency
    supplies and medals for participants!
  • Gather your team or group.
  • Decide who is going to walk which sections. (You can walk as many as you like, and stop or
    start where you like – but the challenge is to cover the whole walk if you can.)
  • The event is carefully timetabled – so arrive at your allotted start point.
  • Prepare to receive your team’s baton and follow our pace setters to the next check point.
    (You are, of course, free to walk at whatever speed you are comfortable, but the 3 miles/hr
    will get you to Harwich in daylight hours and in time for fish and chips!)
  • Collect your medal.
  • Put your feet up!

When?………
This walking event will take place over the Summer Solstice Weekend of 20th/21st June 2020. Walking will take place in daylight hours only. All walkers will be free to either keep up with the pace (approx. 3 miles/hr) or walk at their own speed – the pace-setters are only there to make sure our Olympic Torch makes it to the next team’s start point on schedule

Why?…….
The Rob George Foundation exists in memory of Rob, who died aged 21 in 2013, after a battle bravely fought against Leukaemia. Please visit: www.therobgeorgefoundation.org for lots of information on the work we do.

And one more thing…..

out and to explore the beautiful Essex countryside on your doorstep! You will be amazed by its
variety and splendour. Whether you choose to rise with the mid summer sun or at a more leisurely
