Pauline & Andrew Wilkinson

– River Thames Bridges Walk

Hello! We are Pauline and Andrew Wilkinson. We live in central Basingstoke and have been married for just over 26 years. We have a passion for all things old and interesting, and enjoy spending our time rumaging through junk shops and sharing a passion for local history.

We have always taken a bit of a back seat when it comes to fundraising, allowing others to do all the hard work. The staff at Clarke and Son have have been an inspiration to us both and so, for the first time ever, we are going to be the ones making the effort for a change. Our challenge is taking on the 25km London Bridges Walk, with the aim to raise £400. Although we are used to walking six or seven miles in a normal day trip to London 25km in a day is going to be a bit of a challenge. But we know that with everyone’s knd support we will get there.

We’ve both lost our mothers to cancer so the Ark Cancer Charity is a charity very close to our hearts. We know from first hand experience how important it is to have a treatment centre where patients and their families can benefit from a calm and supportive environment that is close to home, and we are proud to have the opportunity to help raise money for this amazing charity.

Any donations are gratefully received. They can be made through The Good Exchange site which means 100% of the money will reach the charity. For example around 11% is lost if we went with Just Giving. So please take the time to register and donate here:
