90 year old, Alan Blake walks the equivalent of Everest for charity!


By 2021 Joanna Hilditch

Recently i met this remarkable 90 year old Herefordian man Alan Blake, who is following in Sir Captain Tom Moore’s footsteps, planning to walk the number of steps round his garden that would get him to the top of Everest! It’s pretty steep in his garden and each circuit is 120 steps. The previous High Sheriff (Patricia Thomas) had made the plan but couldn’t do it because of lockdown. So I was the one to dress up and Tricia came too. Please support him if you can in aid of Parkinson’s (from which his lovely wife Val suffers); Burghill Church and Hereford Rotary.
To support him in his walk please go to his Just-Giving page https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/louise-blake-1…
