The Rural Coffee Caravan Information Project’s Garry Simmonds is walking more than 100 miles along the length of the Suffolk Coast path from Felixstowe to Lowestoft and back again over eight days to raise funds for the Coffee Caravan. Garry, a project officer, will be camping out as he aims to raise funds to highlight that the project needs major donors and grants. Garry is raising funds to aid the project and highlight the work it does in reducing rural isolation and loneliness and in helping rural communities gain the information they need to access services aimed at improving care, health and independence. Garry (pictured) expects his 100-mile sunrise coast expedition will result in blisters, heat rash, wind-tan, midge bites, muscle strain, sleep loss and most importantly funding to cover the diesel bill for the project’s campervan for one year (approximately £4,200). Garry will be walking the route from Wednesday September 5th to Wednesday September 12th. To donate visit his BT MyDonate page, call him on 07966241823 or talk to one of the volunteers when the Coffee caravan visits Redlingfield. He hopes that people will also get sponsorship to join him on his trek - for all or part of the journey.
