Chester the dog will be taking his owner Moira Banks for a long walk soon.
Moira was very grateful to the Cheerful Sparrows Ward at the local QEQM Hospital for the care her late husband received and she wanted to ‘give something back’ by raising much-needed funds for The Cheerful Sparrows Thanet Charity.
This small local charity has been supporting people in Thanet for nearly a hundred years and their help is needed now more than ever with the effects of the Covid pandemic taking their toll, especially this Christmas.
Moira is planning to do the sponsored walk on Sunday 13 December starting at 11am from Hampton Pier, near her home in Herne Bay. She then hopes to walk all the way to Whitstable. She was careful to point out that she was taking along a push chair in case her much-loved, eleven-year-old Chester began to get tired!

All best wishes to Moira.

If you would like to sponsor her and support the charity in making a difference for local people this Christmas, please make a donation.
