3 days!

It is getting wonderfully close to kick off!

Everything is in place and just a few last minute updates…

Sadly, Tris will not be joining the walking team owing to family circumstance. He will of course be sorely missed during the walk but remains an integral member of the Dove Step team. All the best to Tris and family and we look forward to many future adventures.

The Dove Step beer is currently brewing away and melding into a delicious thing under BlackBar brewer Joe’s expert guidance. Keep an eye on the BlackBar Brewery website and Twitter for announcements on which pubs will be stocking Dove Step beer next month.

Here are a few photos of the creation process, kindly shared by Joe:

A massive thank you to BlackBar brewery for the continued support – it means a lot. We couldn’t be more proud of our sponsors: BlackBar Brewery, Wild Frontier Ecology and of course Bridgedale Socks.

A special mention also needs to go out to Dove Step artist and true gentleman Gyr Crakes. You can still purchase his Turtle Dove t-shirt from the Zazzle store, as modelled by these lovely ladies…

Hugely humbling and massively inspiring is the support we have received via the JustGiving page. At the time of writing, the total raised is a whopping £885! This has already surpassed our expectation and we are incredibly grateful to everyone who has donated.

We will do you proud! We are chomping at the bit to get walking and we will cover each mile proud of the funds we’ve raised to date and any more we are able to. 300 miles for Turtle Doves – here we go!
