9k in Blackpool – By Katrina

For our September walk we went to Blackpool and stayed for a couple of days to make the most of some family time.

We walked along the promenade under all the illuminations, which are 10k long so we walked a bit more than the 9k we had originally challenged ourselves to! We set off around 5pm and it was pretty dark by the time we finished. It's amazing to think that over one million bulbs are used in the illuminations, it must take a long time to get them all set up. Griffin bought his own illuminations to carry around.

We were pretty tired by the end of the walk so on our way back to the hotel we decided that we deserved a treat so we shared some do-nuts...


My next update will be when we have completed our 9k walk for October. If you would like to sponsor us please take a look at our fundraising page here
