This September, she and her dog Max will do the Lea Valley Walk, which follows the River Lea from its source at Leagrave to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London.
I hope the walk will raise awareness. Max
and I will do everything we can to help that process.
Maggie is a keen walker, and loves to go rambling with Max, a rescue dog who has his own experience of poverty. They plan to complete the Lea Valley Walk in five days. Every stages of the walk is easily accessible by public transport, so if you would like to do the walk with them, or just join in for one day, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If an 80km walk along the graceful River Lea doesn’t appeal, you can still support Maggie and Max by sponsoring them.
And please use the buttons at the bottom of this page to share it with all your friends. Thank you.
The first leg leads from Leagrave to Luton Airport Parkway, passing through Wardown Park and Luton town centre. If you’d like to join Maggie for this stage, returning to the start takes just minutes by train.
After Luton Airport Parkway, the walk is mostly along a disused railway line with lovely views over Luton Hoo.
Day 1 ends near Harpenden station, so if you want to do the whole first day with Maggie, it’s still very easy to get back to Luton.
If you’re interested in the Lea Valley Walk, Maggie recommends the guidebook by Leigh Hatts, which is available via the author’s website.
