Day 11. Gran Canaria. Day off in Las Palmas

Today Alan rested… and deservedly too, after a couple of tough hikes in Gran Canaria.

His new friend Toka, collected him from Playa del Inglés this morning after Alan had a nice lay-in… and drove all the way back up North again to collect his ferry to Santa Cruz in Tenerife.

He has now raised over £1000 and looking to get even more!!

Tonight, Alan will stay at the Hotel Horizonte… before heading off tomorrow morning towards Aguimar. I think he’ll be staying in a little village just north of there… but can’t confirm that until tomorrow.

Once again a special thank you for the help we’ve received from the following individuals and companies;

  • Mitch Mitchell – Lanzarote’s favourite personal trainer the ‘man in black’ for getting Alan’s fitness and stamina to optimum levels
  • David White from Axia FX – for sponsoring Alan’s costs during the trek
  • Ray from Agua Clara for sponsoring Alan’s water consumption during the trip
  • Irma from Yaiza te Informa for all her help with the Spanish press
  • Joanne & Louise at Balan Sports for the supply of Alan’s printed t-shirts
  • Naviera Armas – for sponsoring all ferry crossings during the charity walk
  • … and of course to everyone who has donated sponsorship… and also prizes for the upcoming auction at Wax Bar

You can make a donation using the link below. And, if you’d like to offer some practical help here are a few ideas. Or, if you have some goods or talents you could contribute they’d be gratefully received for the Wax Bar charity auction. A list of the items available for the auction so far is HERE – and is updated as more lots are offered.

ALL funds raised will be shared equally between the Rose Road Association and Niños del Tercer Mundo.
