Yvonne Lyon West Highland Way fundraising success

Yvonne Lyon West Highland Way fundraising success

Day seven of Yvonne Lyon’s West Highland Way Walk to fundraise for the Stroke Association was the last leg between Kinlochleven and Fort William.

Singer-songwriter yvonne-lyon-end-walkYvonne says in her online diary: “A little teary that this was the last day of walking this magnificent way. Woke up, surprisingly full of energy and needed it to climb the steep ascent out of Kinlochleven. I was rewarded with a great view of the loch and spoiled with mountains on all sides and meandering rivers through the glen towards Fort William.

Magnificent views of Ben Nevis, still with pockets of snow on it’s summit. After a final steep climb, a long and thoughtful meander to the town centre. Delighted to be met by Jo & Russ with balloons & banner.”

Last July 2016, singer-songwriter Yvonne Lyon’s Dad suffered a stroke and one of the first organisations to reach out to him was the Stroke Association with support, advice, resources, connection and community for both him and the family.

Yvonne commented: “We’ve always wanted to walk the West Highland Way, and with it being such a significant year, we wanted to mark it with a special achievement while raising money and awareness for such a great charity.”

As at Sunday 14 May, Yvonne and Jo have raised 188% of the original target in donations.  Now the figure is £1,884.38 including Gift Aid.  Yvonne is now hoping she can reach that magic 200% of target, that is, £2,000.  As of today, Sunday 14 May, Yvonne needs £115.62 to reach £2,000.  If you can donate a few pounds to help reach 200% of the original target, then please visit ‘Jo and Vonny’s Big Four Oh West Highland Way Adventure’ on their JustGiving page here.

The Stroke Association believes in life after stroke. That’s why they campaign to improve stroke care and support people to make the best possible recovery. It’s why the Stroke Association fund research into new treatments and ways to prevent stroke. The Stroke Association is a charity, and rely on the public’s support to change lives and prevent stroke.

  • Yvonne’s new CD single Till We Meet Again was released on Friday 12 May 2017 and is getting airplay on 100.8 Revival FM.

Yvonne says: “We’ve always wanted to walk the West Highland Way, and with it being such a significant year, we wanted to mark it with a special achievement while raising money and awareness for such a great charity.”

Yesterday, Saturday 29 April, Yvonne says in her diary: “Today was a little more cloudy, breezy and showery, but by the time we reached Conic Hill it brightened up. Loch Lomond was showing off it’s best moody colours. Unfortunately, poor Jo has blisters on her blisters and they seem to multiply like gremlins fed after midnight! So we took it a little slower today. yvonne-lyon-walk

It felt good to conquer our first peak. Lunch at The Oak Tree and coffee at St Mocha. Beautiful walk alongside the Loch before arriving at The Shepherd’s rest to our friends Jenny and Chris and their family and also Martha’s 9th Birthday party.”

You can support the Yvonne and Jo’s Walking the West Highland Way for Stroke Association because her dad experienced excellent support from the Stroke Association.  Visit the JustGiving page here.  The Stroke Association provide support to stroke survivors to make life after stroke a reality.
