Portishead mum, blogger and author; Heidi Loughlin is calling for people to join her at this year’s Stomp walk in aid of Penny Brohn UK.
Heidi supported the event last year and will be walking the six mile route again with her friends and family. The sponsored walk takes place on Saturday 12 October and is open to all ages and abilities. The family friendly walk starts at Anchor Square on the Bristol harbour-side and follows the towpath alongside the Avon Gorge towards Penny Brohn UK’s National Centre in Pill.
The event will culminate with the Stomp Autumn Fayre at Penny Brohn UK’s National Centre where there will be stalls, refreshments and entertainment. The fayre is open to the public as well as walkers taking part in Stomp.
Heidi blogs about her experience of living with inflammatory breast cancer in her up front and honest blog, Storm in a Tit Cup and released her debut book, Heidi’s Lifeline, earlier this year.
Heidi Loughlin, said: “My friends and I are really looking forward to this year’s Stomp for Penny Brohn UK. We loved it last year as the atmosphere was full of fun, the kids were thrilled to be able to participate in the challenge and we all got to eat chocolate along the way! Penny Brohn UK do a fantastic job in promoting the whole person approach to living with cancer. It’s not just about medicine. The walk promotes good general health, the benefits of exercise for all and the importance of enjoying yourself with friends. See you there in October!”
Sophie Thomas, Community Fundraising Officer at Penny Brohn UK, said: “We’re so happy to have Heidi and her friends and family join us at Stomp again this year. It is our third annual Stomp and we’re hoping to make it even bigger and better. It’s a really fun day out for the whole family and everyone is welcome. Including dogs! We’d love to see lots of friends and families take part in Stomp to help us to support more people living with cancer.”
