A few days ago, at about 10am, Peter Britton strolled into the main car park at John O’Groats. His virtual walk was over. The original distance from Land’s End to John O’Groats is 811 miles per Google Maps. Somehow, he did 913 miles but he did take several detours, especially around the Yorkshire Dales and The Lake District.

Since the last update, he has covered the distance between Ramscraigs, up to Wick, along the A99 and into John O’Groats.
The purpose of his doing this virtual walk was to try to raise as much money as possible to help fund the running costs of your local library in Adderbury. Focal has the responsibility to raise £10k every year. If they don’t, then the future of the library could be at risk.

We understand people are tired of being asked to sponsor this or donate to that which is why Peter has tried to do something different. Hopefully, in return for a donation from your hard-earned cash, he has given you something in return. The purpose of his weekly blog was hopefully to make you smile while you learnt something new and quirky every time. He also threw in quite a few litter picks around the village while he did his actual walking.

If you have appreciated Peters efforts and you care about your local library, please make a donation now. How to do this is under the Donation link on this website.

Some of you have already pledged money on completion. Can you all now action those pledges, please?

Peter will not personally ask for donations again, so please act now.
