Article created by Ken Bennett and published in the Oldham Times. Covid kicked the campaign into the long grass. Since then I’ve been picking my brains for a new ‘pick me up’ and I think I’ve picked the right time to start it. Watch this space…..
🎼These shoes were made for walking, so that’s just what they did🎵🎶 – for 2.6 km, for 26 days, for my #26challenge , for funding for Mahdlo Youth Zone, for the young people of Oldham! I hope you will help me to celebrate by making much needed donations to mahdloyz.org/support-us/donate. Thank you for your wonderful support throughout my journey. Right now I’m off to ‘pop a cork’🍾
I wrote this 3 yrs ago & vowed to try to clean the streets of Manchester to create a beautiful memorial to the beautiful 22. During lockdown I’ve been unable to fulfil my promise to pick up 22 pieces of litter every week. Today I dedicate my 2.6km walk to their memory. ❤️
Many thanks to @joncowap of BBC Radio York for interviewing me this morning approx 11.30. Gave a big shout-out for @mahdloyz at approx 11.35. Listen in on catch-up later today & for 30 days. Hear my dulcet tones 🤣😂🤣 on the link below:
Day 23 of #26challenge. Achieved another milestone today! Since 1st April I’ve walked this corridor 11,000 times, which equals 100km. Strictly speaking, should that be a kilometrestone? 🤣😂🤣 Please try to donate 2p per km to http://mahdloyz.org/support-us/donate. Every 2p helps!
