Walking for the NHS

One of the saving graces of lockdown
has been being able to 
walk with Pearl

Like all of us 
I am so grateful that the efforts of our key workers
have enabled me to continue to walk Pearl.

The support for the NHS is huge
as demonstrated by the weekly clap
and is evident everywhere.

I am very saddened to hear that
the government has seen fit to give them a paltry 1%
(MPs got 3.1%)

I rarely go in for sponsorship. 
(The only one I can remember was over 12 years ago.
I walked the Great Wall of China for the Meningitis Trust.
I raised a wonderful £5000) 

I am contemplating doing a similar challenge

Pearl and I are willing to do 
A 1000 mile Countryside Walk

If every adult in the country sponsored me
just 10p a mile
I would raise a huge amount of money 
Then each NHS staff could have a bonus

For those interested in figures and details
I calculate

At 10p a mile from every adult
that would be £100 per person.
With approx 50million people
(50 million x 100)
£5,000, 000,000

I am very aware that many people
who have lost their jobs because of Covid
will not be able to do this.

  • Why don't the "wealthy" people contribute more
    (say £1000)
  • Those companies who have done well
    (supermarkets/Amazon etc)
    should also make a significant contribution
    (eg £100 per store)
  • MP's could contribute more
If this were to happen 

each NHS staff member 
1.6 million of them
could receive a bonus of 

This would be standard for everyone in the NHS.
Every person's job was vital,
irrespective of their salary.

I would love to know what you think.
