Event Description

My name is Sophie. I'm a 21 year old student from Llanelli and I've decided to take a few months off work to do something incredible.

You may not know this but Wales is the first country in the world to have a walking path around the entire perimeter. In April I will be leaving Llanelli and heading east to pursue a 1034 mile walk, along the coast, up Offa's Dyke and around Wales in an anti-clockwise direction. This will take me approximately 10 weeks.

I'm doing this for many reasons, self improvement, exploration, just because I can! But also to raise money for Costa Foundation.

Costa Foundation is a charity close to my heart not least because if it wasn't for the coffee growing communities then I wouldn't have a job! It's a charity that improves the life chances of boys and girls in coffee growing communities by providing the opportuniy of a safe, quality education. They build schools (supporting 42 school projects in 8 countries), invest in water supplies, provide electricity and computers, build latrines and teacher accomodation and even develop land for families to grow crops.

It's an amazing charity and I'm very excited to be a part of something that can and will change people's lives for the better.

I'll be blogging about my experience and you can see how I'm doing at www.lengthandbreadth.blog.

If you want to find out more about Costa Foundation then all the information can be found here www.costafoundation.com.

Hello Sophie, My wife and I met you near the Menai Bridge a couple of weeks ago. We are also walking the Welsh Coastal Path but in more manageable chunks. I hope the Llyn Peninsular was as good as we hope it will be. Good luck with the rest of the walk, Pembroke is a real treat. Andrew & Nicola Gash

Hi Sophie. We met you last Tuesday (23rd May) on the beach outside the Welsh Language and Heritage Centre. We promised to donate, so here you are! You are doing an amazing thing. We really admire your commitment, determination and resilience. We are only sorry that we didn't have the presence of mind to offer you the use of the facilities of our holiday flat when you passed our way in Aberdaron. We hoped to meet you further on your journey, but it wasn't to be. Hope it continues to go well. All the best, Liz, Lydia and Jack the dog xx ps we are really enjoying your blog and photos.
