The Big Walk Challenge

Dear all,

I’ll be taking part in The Big Walk challenge on Friday 28th June, in just under 2 weeks’ time, to raise funds towards scholarships. I feel strongly about this as I was myself supported by a “bourse”, a grant from the French government that enabled me to study at University of Burgundy in Dijon. Without it, there is no doubt that I would have been unable to study English at University, and would definitely not have come on an Erasmus exchange to the UK all these years ago – and the rest is history as they say!

I’ve set up a JustGiving page, so if you are able and willing to support me in this effort, feel free to donate.

Thank you!

Celine

PS: at this stage, I don’t know if anyone else from APS is also walking/ running the 37 miles (or the 23ml), so let me know if you do!
