hi members..i have replied to Mr Pennifolds criticisms, which have been many, on the London website.I explained that as the first walk took place in 1979 we didnt have any images to post on our site and i never claimed the images that did appear were images of our walkers. i understood these were stock images and if some are not i will humbly apologise to the owners and remove them..i also explained that the site was examined by Save the Children and meets with their full approval..i also pointed out that we are not trying to sell anything to anyone..sometimes its very nice to receive a few words of encouragement for people who are trying to do something good for others rather than a stream of negativity..i dont know mr.Pernnifold but i wish him well

Thank you for the extra information Paul. Now I understand why you are not ABTA affiliated. While I feel that most members would regard this as a walking holiday (albeit a very long one) however the trip is defined it is important that anyone paying money up front is protected should something unforeseen go wrong. I would therefore advise any member thinking of walking this epic walk, and raising money for charity by getting sponsorship, to buy appropriate travel insurance (including insolvency cover) for the trip BEFORE they send off any payments.
