Kathy’s walk the trail diary

On the 1 July2020 Kathy Gore set off to walk to walk all 200 miles of the Sussex Hospices Trail to raise money for Friends of Sussex Hospices and I completed the walk on 31 July.

The Trail has 26 sections, ranging in distance from three to eleven miles long and I walked at least one each day, taking the odd day off to give my feet a rest! Find out about her progress, what she saw and the people she met along the way.
