Tom is walking The West Highland Way.…dressed as Yoda!! – Tom and his old school friend Adam are walking The West Highland Way, a 96 mile walk up the west coast of Scotland from Glasgow to Fort William. It is not the easiest terrain and they have chosen to tackle it just as midges and mosquitoes are in season! The route is commonly walked in seven to eight days, although many fitter and more experienced walkers do it in five or six. Despite being neither fitter or more experienced they have chosen to walk it in 6 days! On top of all this they are doing it in fancy dress! Their efforts are geared towards raising funds for the North West Air Ambulance. Tom has a target of raising £1000. He has currently raised £665 on his just giving page so he is two-thirds of the way there…!. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE SUPPORT SO FAR.

There are a number of ways you can support Tom.
1. Visit his just giving page at: and donate online. Don’t forget to tick the gift aid box if you are a UK tax payer.
2. Text yoda96 £5 to 70070 to donate £5.
3. Visit the The Whalley Wine Shop and complete a sponsorship form.
4. We also have a raffle for a three course meal for two at the fabulous Parkers Arms, Newton in Bowland at £2 a strip.

We hope you can support the North West Air Ambulance and help Tom achieve his £1000 target.


Dan, Matt and Jen.
