I'm doing a sponsored walk in June in aid of Parkinson's UK. Does anyone from the RSPB have any objection to my creating a thread on here with a link to my Just Giving page? I've previously been given the thumbs up when I did the Swimathon a few years ago but I don't want to take consent for granted.
Our herring gulls are red listed birds. Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.
Having checked our terms and conditions, this should not be a problem, but I will if I may move this thread to the tearooms section instead.
In reply to MrsT:
Many thanks, Claire! That's appreciated.
How are you?
In reply to Clare:
Sadly Limpy was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease last year. Parkinson's UK are organising walks in various parts of the country - on June 10th I'm going to be doing my local one at the beautiful Glemham Hall in Suffolk. If anyone on here would like to sponsor me here is a link to my Just Giving page.
Sorry Limpy was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and we wish you well with your fund raising and also on the walk, it is a very worthy cause Clare; very best wishes to you and Limpy from us both, as always XX

Really sorry to hear of Limpy's diagnosis of Parkinson's disease.
I am happy to help sponsor your walk for such a worthy cause and I wish both you and Limpy well.

There are important questions to be answered though - for example, is Limpy going to provide us with the suitably embarrassing photos of you crawling over the finishing line? :-)

It was actually a pleasant change to see someone advertising a walk, and by remarkable coincidence it was for a charity which will directly benefit Limpy. Most walks seems to have been replaced by runs - sadly I hate running and I'm not exactly in tip-top shape.
Really sorry to hear the news of Limpy's diagnosis Clare, I also wish you both well and all the best on your walk, yes please the more pics the better:-)
Lot to learn
