We will be walking 22 miles in one day along the Ridgeway and spring-line villages, all in aid of WATSAN water and sanitation project in Uganda. WATSAN is trying to raise £24k to replace squalid facilities at Rumbugu Primary School in South Western Uganda, where over 400 pupils share intermittent water to a single tap, and 40 female pupils share just one toilet. Help is urgently need to ensure these children, especially the girls, have access to a safe education.

WATSAN is run by a Ugandan staff team and a UK Support Team, of which Kate is a trustee. Kate has been working with WATSAN since she led a group of 18 Girl Guides to Uganda for a month in 2013. The team worked on a WATSAN project in a school and saw the impact of their work first hand. 

Our previous experience of long-distance walking was a 56-mile trek along the Thames Path from source to Oxford, for 'pleasure', and resulted in 13 blisters and much complaining. Kate has promised to tie her boots more tightly this time...
