After a great interview on BBC Radio Humberside with Phil White this morning, talking about how Friends of Pakati came about, I finally took my first steps in support of PC’s to PAKATI https://friendsofpakati.com/2021/01/13/pcs-to-pakati/
I set off just after 12 noon, intending to do 3 miles/5km in less than 1 hour, but conditions on the paths were not good today. Melting snow, icy paths made it treacherous, slippery & very wet out.
However, I was determined to get walking again today, of all days. 16th January 1989 was the day I first set foot in a classroom at Pakati Secondary school, and two years later – 30 years ago – I had been promoted to Acting Head at the school.
I managed 2.72 miles, in just over 1 hour. I was not able to go at my usual pace of over 3 miles per hour, but I have decided to donate £30 anyway to get the ball rolling – I hope we can get many more donations from those who are able to travel at least 1 mile under their own steam, over the next 178 days. We hope to average £30 per day, to help get the PC’s to Pakati later this year.
Can any of you, dear readers, go an extra mile? Then maybe do it again? More than once? Then please let us know who, when & where you do it, how you do it, who if anyone you do it with – then please tell us, send us some pictures, and let us know how much you are donating👍👍
The donation of £30 gets us 30 miles on the way from Bradford, towards our first target – London
