Both The Scotland Howard League and UK Howard League are busy confirming more events in more towns, I am delighted with the response so far looking forward to confirming these.

I am also overwhelmed by the people that have contacted me to join me on legs of the walk, in some cases it will be very Forest Gump with Derby University students and staff joining me for the day. If your an individual please get in touch with me on Twitter @FrankieOwensJnr I would love to have company on as many of the days as possible. You can raise money for your own charity or help me with mine.

If your an organisation please do the same where we have events we can join up with your organisation, where we don’t lets make something happen.

Well trainers on and back out on the march , I look forward to updating you all soon before the final preparations please send the link around and help spread the word donations have been generous (Thank you to you all) now past £750 but looking to raise £10,000 by the finish.

Thanks for all your interest…..Best Frankie
