FOUR villagers are embarking on a 100 mile walk for charity – but three of them have a combined age of less than 12 years.

Milland villager Josie Dew and her three young children have begun Operation Pram Push.

Her aim is to raise as much money as possible for Liphook-based charity, Dreams Come True. The route will take Josie and 
her children 100 miles through the countryside.

She set off from Winchester on August 1, pushing a pram and two walking wagons the length of the South Downs Way, where her trek will end in Eastbourne.

“My 11-month-old son Jack is in the pram and my two daughters Molly, seven, and Daisy, four, are walking with me,” said Josie.

“Two Dutch friends are coming to help push. It will take about a month, camping all the way. My builder husband will meet us at intervals bearing emergency supplies of food, water and nappies.

“The whole jolly escapade will take about a month. I’m raising money for Dreams Come True, and I’m hoping to donate a special trike-bike so children the charity support can be taken for rides and experience the fun and freedom of cycling.”

A keen cyclist, writer and cook, Josie is also author of several books which document her travel experiences and adventures.

Dreams Come True is a national charity fulfilling the dreams of terminally and seriously-ill children and young people.
