Nic's Go With The Flo Challenge Leaving Warminster For Devizes

Friday 13th May 2016:

 It was all smiles in the sunshine outside 
Warminster Civic Centre,
at 9.30 this morning (Friday 13th May 2016),
as the recently elected Mayor of Warminster 
Paul Macfarlane and his predecessor Sue Fraser,
expressed their good wishes and waved off 
Nicola Noble, her Jack Russell bitch Flo, and two 
co-walkers, as they set off on the Warminster to
Devizes stage of the Go With The Flo Challenge.

Nicola and Flo are raising money for
The Forever Friends Appeal, which is the 
fundraising charity for the 
Royal United Hospital at Bath. 
Forever Friends raises funds for all wards and
departments of the RUH, with a primary 
focus to raise £8.5 million towards building a 
pioneering new Cancer Centre which will 
transform care for patients and their families.

 Nicola says: 
"In March 2006 my sister Vanessa Kyte 
and I did our first walk to raise money for 
the Forever Friends Appeal at The Royal United 
Hospital, Bath, where Ness was being treated 
for breast cancer after her diagnosis in 2000.
Ness sadly died in 2007 but asked me to 
promise I would carry on until a much needed 
new cancer centre was built at the RUH."

 Nic also said:
"Today's walk is part of 100 miles I am walking
across the catchment area of the RUH,
to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the
Walk Of Life and to raise funds for the
Forever Friends Appeal Cancer Care Campaign."

Full details are given on the poster at

 Go With The Flo and Sponsor Our Challenge!

My name is Flo and I am a Jack Russell
from Warminster. This May I am going to
be walking approx. 100 miles with my owner
Nic across the catchment area for the Royal
United Hospital to celebrate the 10th Anniversary
of The Walk Of Life and raise money for the
Forever Friends Appeal Cancer Care Campaign.
I am seeking sponsorships from local businesses
to support us and make a real difference
to your local community. 

Walk Of Life ~ How It All Started.  
10 years ago Nic and her sister Ness approached
the Forever Friends Appeal with an idea to hold
a canal walk to raise money for the new
Cancer Care Centre at the RUH.  The walk
started off as 'March Miles' with an 85 mile
route around the RUH catchment area and
later became the Walk Of Life. Ness wa
diagnosed with cancer in 2000 and before she
passed away in 2007, she had managed to
raise a staggering £100,000 through the
Walk Of Life. Today the Walk Of Life goes
from strength to strength in her memory with
a one day event walking from Devizes to Bath.

Why Sponsor Me? 
As a local pet supporter why not show your
support by sponsoring me and Nic on our 100
mile walk in 2016, with the final day joining
hundreds of supporters at the main Walk Of Life
event. We have loads of furry friends who take 
part in the Walk Of Life. We need your support
to raise as much as possible for our new
Cancer Centre; all donations are welcome!  
If your business can donate £100 or more
we can offer the following benefits with the
support of the Forever Friends Appeal.
We will carry dedicated flags featuring your
company logo for at least one day of the 100
mile walk. Your logo will feature on a
supporters' A-board at the Walk Of Life event
where I will finish the final leg of the walk. 
You can sign up for the Walk Of Life
