To mark her close involvement with the WRNS100 Project Group, and her forthcoming retirement from the Royal Naval Reserve, Jane Allen has decided to raise money for two naval charities by setting out on an epic maritime walk entitled the ‘Victory Walk’. Her anti-clockwise route around the coastline of mainland Britain is estimated to take a year and cover at least 5,500 miles.
Jane will start from Admiral Nelson’s flagship, HMS Victory, in Portsmouth, and finish there about a year later – hence the title Victory Walk. Her motivation for attempting this long trek is to raise money for two important charities close to her heart:
- The Women’s Royal Naval Service Benevolent Trust (WRNS BT)
- The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity (RNRMC)
During the walk Jane will be happy to try and meet up with any former Wrens along her route. She would be very grateful for any offers of a place to park her motorhome overnight with access to fresh water. To check her progress, please visit the WRNS BT website or Facebook page.
You can sponsor Jane on her Victory Walk by donating through the RNRMC Virgin Money Giving page (uk.virginmoneygiving.com/rnrmc); all donations will be equally split between the two charities.
