Alex finally dragged himself away from Burnham this morning. We would like to thank him for all he is doing on behalf on the RNLI. If you wish to donate then please do so at - https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/longwalkround.
We would like to thank everyone what wrote him motivational mail and left goodies for him. He read them all last night and says that he really enjoyed reading them and they are now stored in his back back to be reread on the journey.
We would like to thank our wonderful community for rallying round to support him. Alex has posted on his facebook saying about his reception in Burnham '...the welcome I've received here has completely blown me away.'
So thank you to Bessie's sweet shoppe for acting as our post box and the little goody package, The Railway Burnham-on-sea for providing a hot meal & drink for him on arrival, the The Royal Clarence Hotel or providing him a room for his stay (allowing him to get some much needed rest in a warm room) & the Reed Arms Wetherspoons, Burnham On Sea for breakfast yesterday.
Thank you too to the Hair of the Dog for the offer to smarten him up, Burnham Cleaning Centre for the offer to do some laundry and Sue Ryder for the offer of clothing. Sorry we did not get to you guys but the offers well all appreciated.
Alex is now on his way to Weston and over to Wales soon going clockwise round Britain. So please spread the word to family and friends of his long walk round. Ask them to keep an eye out for him and of course donating would be good. :)
And not least thanks to our volunteers, that have got Alex and his rucksacks to where he / they need to be. Appreciate you giving up more of your precious time.
He is on twitter @ELLISROSWELL and posting about his journey on facebook Alexander Ellis-Roswell.
