Day 52 - BFBS - Mark Hearn, Rosie Laydon, Karim Kronfli.jpg

Today was a wonderful boost for my morale. I was met by an old friend Karim and BFBS (British Forces Broadcasting Service) with a wooden goblet and a bottle of champagne to celebrate reaching the £10,000 mark.

We did a bit of filming, an interview and lunch. It was quite relaxed and good humored. Let's hope it will generate more interest. I was at least able to say how much support there is out there for the armed services.

Now here's the thing. Last night I discovered my mileage mistake. I was going from one map to another and hadn't noticed my start point today was on both maps. So instead of 13 miles today my route is now just 8 miles, so I intend to push on and drive down a little of tomorrows walk.

  1. Hi congrats at reaching your £10,000 goal well done from Hector and Cath at St Ronans Innerleithen

  2. It was an honour meeting up with you Malcolm! You are inspiring. The champagne and the filming was the least I could do to help. Here is to a successful rest of your journey. Karim
