Fundraiser Extraordinaire

East Lancs LDWA member, Gordon Stone, is undertaking a complete solo traverse of the French Pyrenees footpath, the GR10, this Summer.

Starting on June 13th from Hendaye on the Atlantic coast, Gordon is using Paul Lucia's 50 day schedule to complete the 900km (550 mile) route which includes 50,000m (165,000ft) of ascent through the Pyrenees to Banyuls on the shores of the Mediterranean. To give him extra incentive, Gordon has is also aiming to raise funds for both Guide Dogs for the Blind and The British Heart Foundation in completing the challenge.

If you would like to make a donation, however small, the easiest way is through one of the justgiving sites :

Any advice will also be gratefully received. Gordon will endeavour to update his blog wherever possible along the route if time and internet access can be found. His blog can be found at Regards Gordon Stone
