Charities are a big part of my life. At a local level I like to support Christian youth work and charities which help people and families affected by disability. At an international level I like to support charities and projects which help children born into poverty or children for whom life is a struggle. There are so many good charities I find it impossible to limit my support to just one or two. I know the people who run the charities and projects I support so I know the money will be put to good use.

50-mile walk from Newbridge to Callander

24th November

I will be supporting Stand by Me's work in Shan State, Burma.

Thank you for your support, Peter Hagenbuch 

Stand by Me rescue children then do whatever it takes to provide the care, love and attention they need to thrive. Shan State lies in the west of Burma. It is troubled by war, conflict, persecution, poverty and the trafficking of children. Stand by Me is meeting the needs of orphaned and abandoned children in our two family-style children's homes. The children receive a great education and get the chance to reach their full potential. The children's village has recently purchased new land adjoining the village and donations to Peter's fundraising will help to renovate the land to be used as a play area for children and for outreach projects to the local community.

I set off from my workplace at Newbridge at 6am. By the time I got to the Forth Road Bridge (6 miles) it was daylight. I walked past Rosyth and through Crossford and Saline (18 miles). Just north of Saline I stopped at the Shieldbank Coffee Shop. The wife of the owner is Swiss, which I liked because my dad’s parents were Swiss and I lived in Switzerland for two years (40 years ago). I walked on through Coalsnaughton (26 miles) by the Ochil Hills. By the time I got to Alva (29 miles) it was dark. Onto Stirling (34 miles) and Bridge of Allan where I stopped at the Jam Jar coffee shop. The staff there were lovely; I went in feeling tired and discouraged and they cheered me up! Then my friend Colin appeared with soup and coffee and food. I didn’t expect him to stay but he remained with me for the rest of the walk, another six hours, and then took me home! He took my heavy rucksack off me and gave me a jacket when I got too cold. Without his help I might not have been able to finish. For the last few miles I listened to some of my favourite music which took my mind off the walking. I reached Callander (50 miles) at 3.25am – 21 hours and 20 minutes. It was hard to keep walking for that length of time, but I’m pleased I was able to finish!
Thank you for all your support and for your generosity towards the children in Shan State, Burma. 

Stand by... almost there...
