Thanks go to Graham Faithfull (aka Stourvale Walker) for some info that he just posted about another fundraising LEJOGer, Brendan, who's raising money for Greenwich and Bexley Hospice. You can contribute at http://www.justgiving.com/brendancusworthbolger.

Graham's own big walk, along the Offa's Dyke Path, came to a sudden end at Long Ashton due to a sprained ankle - let's hope that he makes a quick recovery and gets to have another go when he's fixed.

Welcome to the first post in the "Fundraising Folk" category. The aim of this is to spread the word about bloggers who are out there raising money for good causes while doing walks and/or other activities. Hopefully you'll be tempted to contribute to their coffers.

Here's a couple for starters:

OBF member Geoff Gafford is just about to start his LEJOG in support of The Multiple Sclerosis Research and Relief Fund, you can contribute at http://www.justgiving.com/geoffgafford.

Sophie Easterbrook and Patch are planning to do a June JOGLE in support of Dogs Trust, you can contribute at http://www.justgiving.com/longestdogwalkinbritain.

If you're planning a similar fundraising activity, send me the details via my Contact Page and I'll see about spreading the word for you.
