Strolling minstrel from Wirral is walking to Glastonbury for Save the Children
A ‘STROLLING minstrel’ from Wirral is walking to Glastonbury in aid of a children’s charity.
With guitar in hand 29-year-old Sally McFerran began her journey from Liverpool, crossing the River Mersey by ferry and on her quest to the Somerset town.
She began her challenge earlier this week and during the 200-mile course will take in the sights of Shrewsbury, Ludlow, Hereford, Monmouth then eventually Bristol for the final leg to Glastonbury.
She hopes to walk 20 miles a day and finish within 10 to 14 days.
Sally, from Hooton, is doing the walk to raise money for Save the Children, a charity she is passionate to help.
“I’ll be documenting my journey as I go with a video camera as well. I have put some videos on YouTube already about the walk.
“I hope to write a song, record it with the proceeds going towards the charity as well.”
Sally’s target of £5,000 has been helped by playing a gig with her band, Alabaster Queen, at the Woodcote House Hotel which raised £600.
Sally, a support worker with children added: “I have worked with young people since I was 18 – teaching drama in colleges and after-school clubs in deprived areas. They are real eye-opening experiences.
“I am passionate about children and Save the Children’s work in 120 countries including the UK. I know it isn’t going to change the world, but if I can do my little bit which will make a small ripple in the ocean, then it’s a start.
“I have been given amazing support by everyone.”
