On 24th July I will be starting my walk of the entire Northumberland Coast, starting at the bottom of Northumberland at Seaton Sluice and walking all the way to the border of Northumberland just north of Berwick.
I will be completing this over 9 days along with my husband and children:
Daisy - aged 4
Ziggy - aged 14
Cameron - aged 15
Jake - aged 17
This will be real challenge as not only do we have a lot of miles to cover by foot, we will be carrying all of our supplies to last us for the 9 day adventure.
I will be completing this challenge to raise money for ESCAPE Family Support.
ESCAPE Family Support (Charitable Status 1063500) was founded in 1995 by Janet Murphy MBE.
For more than two decades the charity has worked hard to develop services that fill gaps in local provision and add value to commissioned services. ESCAPE provides services to families and carers of substance users in Northumberland through their Family Support Project; services to substance users through their Recovery Project; accredited and evidence based training and interventions; and volunteering and peer mentoring opportunities through a dedicated Peer, Volunteer and Client Training projects.
ESCAPE's Family Support Project currently provides the only specialist provision for carers and families of substance users throughout Northumberland and also supports family members bereaved by substance misuse. They work to reduce the impact of substance misuse and improve the health, wellbeing and safety of individuals, families and the local community to enable those affected by addiction and other risky behaviours to access recovery and realise their full potential.
I am hoping to raise as much as possible for this fantastic charity and any support you can give would be greatly appreciated.
