Written by Jennifer Igbafen on 23rd February 2023
Supporters of a charity that helps families affected by miscarriage, stillbirth, and the death of a child, are on the road again.
After a four-year break, Paul , Phil and Mark, will be venturing on a 200-mile walk from Nottingham to Sunderland to raise vital funds for Sunderland-based charity 4Louis.
The charity, based in Pallion, supports bereaved families and supplies personalised memory boxes full of precious keepsakes across the UK. It also provides tools and training to hospital units and hospices free of charge.
A Justgiving page has been launched to support the walk, and raise £4,000 for the charity, with donations currently standing at £600.
It is the eleventh fundraising Walk4Louis event that the three men have organised. The walk will commence from Lace Market, in Nottingham on June 7 and they will arrive end at the charity HQ in Sunderland on June 17.
Over their past 10 walks they have raised £46,000 and walked over 1800 miles.
