Property Consultant Natalie Kitchin's Report On The Towpath Trundle!

18th May 2016

Words by Natalie Kitchin | Property Consultant at Newton Huxley, Molesey.

The Princess Alice hospice hold a special place in my heart, as I’m sure they do for so many other members of the community. For 30 years they have been there to support people with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses. Just this year my family and I found ourselves calling upon this fantastic organisation, whose compassion and care was second to none as we faced such a difficult and challenging time.

So as soon as I found out about the Towpath Trundle, safe in the knowledge that I could give something back I strapped on my walking shoes (which those who know me can tell you, isn’t something I do lightly!) and accompanied by my Mum and our two dogs we began the 23rd annual 8 mile walk!

We were absolutely blessed by the weather with blue skies shining on us for the duration.

 

Despite having grown up in Walton, it is easy to forget the beauty that surrounds us, walking along the river helped me to remember what a beautiful area it is and just how lucky I am to have spent my life here. Helped along by some ice creams we found ourselves enjoying our walk, especially the tranquillity of the river and the wildlife that comes with it.

 

Along our trundle it was so lovely to see so many committed people taking part, as we walked we managed to find Wally and also bumped into a few fairies!

After two hours we reached the finish line, we triumphantly collected our medals and treated ourselves to a slice of cake and settled down on the grass to enjoy the company of those who had also taken part. It was so fantastic to be surrounded by so many charitable people in our own community, but also to see just how many lives the Princess Alice Hospice had touched and made a difference to.
