?This idea for the trip began when?we moved to Broadstairs, the town at?the east?end of the South Coast.? We?wanted to travel by bus all the way to Land’s End.

It was planned as a holiday, but after becoming involved with MNDA in East Kent, we thought it could be turned into a fund raising and awareness event.

We will travel the entire route using public transport and we hope to have travellers from the various Branches/Groups along the way travelling part of the journey with us.

We understand many HO staff will join in for part of the journey as well as some local dignitaries.

Our?journey will take place?from?June 3rd?until June 18th

Towns on the?route include Broadstairs, Sandwich, Folkestone, Hastings,? Brighton (Hove), Portsmouth, Southampton, Bournemouth, Weymouth, Exeter, Torquay, Plymouth,?St Austell, Truro and?Land’s End.

We plan to?attend functions designed to raise funds or awareness of MND in each place we visit.? Our schedule is shown below.
