I’m coming back to my childhood home for the first time in 11 years to Walk the Wight. I tried to do a similar challenge about 30 years ago with Scouts, going from The Needles at sunset to Bembridge by sunrise, but didn’t quite manage it. Earl Mountbatten Hospice was there for my dad in his final weeks, - a time when the family were able to come to see him being awarded the Bar to the Silver Acorn, a Scouting honour. I’m doing this to honour him, and the others who the hospice has helped. Christine Hutchins
