Thanks for the support! I hope it goes well and you have a good time :)

Just been doing Christmas and birthday present shopping via No. 13 - it's really easy!

That's great. Thanks for the support!

I'm not up to doing the walk myself but have persuaded family members to participate on my behalf.

Also, I'm thinking my former employer and colleagues were very supportive before I left work, and I may (cheekily) contact them and ask them to hold an event.

Some great ideas, thanks for the suggestions.

That's great that your family are doing a walk for you. I hope they have a smashing time! It would be super if you could get your former employer to do something. Let us know if you need anything.

Just had my bag and its full to the brim, lol collection all booked.
