Day 5 ....

"Day 5 on the seemingly never ending Ian Botham walk for Leukaemia Research and as he strolled into the home of Shakespeare, Stratford Upon Avon, the question was very much to walk or not to walk?

Happily around a 100 good citizens of Stratford joined us in Charlecote Gardens. Raising the fantastic sum of another £31,000.

However before that, we strolled through every hamlet collecting from every generous person of the public of Stratford. We filled our buckets with the english notes and coins.

So Ian lost his his usual pound of flesh as he set a thundering pace throughout the town. Just before him was Britain's finest ever Olympic champion Daley Thomson, who marched like a modern day Othello accepting everything except the poison chalice. As we neared the finish a cry went up, Is that a blister I see before me! Alas poor toenail, I knew him well.

Tomorrow we rise again at dawn and we will march for victory."

Botham Walk participant.
