I've been coming to this glorious island since I was 6 months old. I'm turning 40 this year which marks almost 4 decades in coming to this beautiful and tranquil island but never once have I took up the chance to traverse it.

So this year, the year of the big 4-0 I'm setting myself some challenges and first up is to indeed complete the Walk The Wight.
Not the easy or medium walks, oh no, I'm throwing myself right into the whole enchilada. A complete tip to tip traverse of the island. Over 26 and a half miles. Maybe I'll complete it on the power of sweets alone, maybe I'll get lost midway, who knows but it'll be fun to see and whilst I'm at it I'll be raising money for the Mountbatten Hospice which helps provide end of life care to terminal people all over the island and that's a great cause in itself.

I know times are tough but if you could spare even a couple ¬£s then it all adds up and enables me to achieve a worthwhile goal before I hit 40 ūüėā Jaime Bird
