Say Hello to Shamus Westwood

Please can I introduce you to my friend, Shamus Westwood, who is walking around the coast of the UK with his six dogs to raise money for terminally ill children.

Homeless and in remission for throat cancer himself, his epic walk began in Folkestone, December 2017. He has camped out and walked in sub zero conditions and often in storms. In the next week, he will be walking from Swanage towards Weymouth with his six rescue dogs and would welcome a chat or some support if you meet him, food for the dogs, a charge for his phone, coffee or a sandwich, as he will be camping out.

From then onwards towards Lyme Regis and in to Devon…

A couple of his dogs are reactive to other dogs and one wears a muzzle and all are on leads, but please approach cautiously if you have dogs. Please follow his inspiring story by joining the group #gumparoundtheuk to get updates and locations and if you can,

It’s an inspiring story amongst the doom and gloom.
