Howard's Journey to John O'Groats from Land's End

After a couple of years recovering from my walk to Lands End covering 874 miles, I've decided it's time to head back to John O'Groats (Virtually) as we have now discovered that The Blackburn Empire Theatre is desperately in need of a new roof.

I will be tracking my daily walks and will attempt to reach the 874-mile target by the end of June. I started the challenge on the 1st of January giving me 182 days to hit my goal!!

The theatre is very close to my heart, but it needs support to help it maintain the historic building, which stands at one of the main gateways to the town, near Ewood Park Football Ground.

My aim is to raise over £5,000 so that we can put the money towards replacing an existing roof that is unfortunately beyond repair after the numerous times it has been 'patched up'.

Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that will help benefit the local community.
