My name is Margaret Davies and I am a Breast Cancer survivor having been given the all clear in 2013. In 2014 I am undertaking a Challenge to raise funds for two charities; The Women's Royal Army Corps Association and Cancer Research UK. My Challenge is to walk around 100 miles over 6 days on The Heart of England Way, a "semi-official" long distance path from Chipping Camden in Glos to Milton in Staffs, curving east of Birmingham. 

I have set up an online donation site at Virgin Money Giving if you would care to sponsor me. Thank you in advance for your support.
