Doesnít look like I will need doctors note now. The staff have spoken about it and realised people having drs note could effect benefits they get and drs donít know what people are capable of. So they are having talk at end of this week to see what other way they can cover themselves from being blamed if anyone takes ill. Sounds like they will let anyone join in unless something comes up meaning someone wouldnít be safe doing it which is what I hoped they would do.

I can imagine that ticking the box saying 'I can't walk more than 50 metres' and then doing 26 miles and 1450 metres of actual ascent.. might be problematic..

Depends on why they are receiving the benefit.If it was for depression or other mental health issues doing a long walk could be seen as therapy.
 It might be an idea in any publicity material for the participants to wear ski masks and be referred to as Walker A,B,C etc.  ;)

Some are on ESA and/or PIP in which case drs note could effect it. Due to this they changed it to just us and someone close to us parent, partner or someone signing just to confirm there is no health reason why we shouldnít do the walk and agreeing we will stop and tell staff if we need to stop. So all set to do the walk end of next month. Expect everyone to manage as a few of ones who struggled or didnít manage the 5 mile have dropped out.

Well all set to do 10 miler in hope valley next Thursday. Going to be long day with nearly half of time spent traveling over half for me. Looking forward to it tho, donít think many are going I think about 6 people from the group 4 more which is all staff and friend of man whoís organising it who we know well. Going to be a 10 mile circuit so it is pretty much once we get half way we have to finish it. Expecting everyone to be ok there is one new one who didnít do the 5 mile walk rest all did and managed 5 mile.
