The Athelstaneford Walk Ten was one of many such events taking place across the UK to raise funds for the wonderful work that Marie Curie nurses do every single day.
When I gathered with others doing the walk it was pouring with rain, but amazingly just before we started the rain stopped. We were piped to the start line by two pipers, which was very moving.
The walk itself was mainly over farmland with views to Fife, East Lothian and the City of Edinburgh.
When we returned to Athelstaneford we were all entertained by a juggler / fire-eater. With memory lanterns displayed behind him this looked very effective indeed. To finish there was a firework display to mark the start of the next shift of Marie Curie nurses beginning work.
I enjoyed the walk immensely and hope that some of our caregivers will join me next year.
