Beefy's Sponsored Walk 2012

Beefy's Sponsored Walk 2012

Beefy completes his 2012 walk


This April Beefy once again walked to beat blood cancers in ten cities across Great Britain. He walked over 150 miles and was joined by the public at some of the most beautiful National Trust Parks in the UK . Every pound raised in entry fees and sponsorship will help bring us closer to beating blood cancers.

The walk is now over, but you can still find out what happened at the ten cities near you, and you can still help by sponsoring one of our local heroes or beefy.



Local heroes

Children from the towns Beefy visited joined him each day to start the walk. Find out more about each of Beefy's 'local heroes' on their own pages.

Beef up your fundraising

Gordon Ramsay beefed up our fundraising by donating his Beef Wellington recipe, what could you do?

Beefy won’t hang up his trainers until we’ve beaten childhood blood cancer, but he needs your support to raise as much money as possible through sponsorship and fundraising

Gordon Ramsay recently met Joe Smale, a Beefy local hero from 2010 and kindly donated his recipe to help fundraise for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research and support Beefy's Great British Walk.

We’d love all of our Beefy Walkers to aim to raise £150 to help Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research raise a record amount for Beefy's Great British Walk 2012.

Why not use Gordon's recipe to host a Beefy dinner?

Good luck Beefy!

Ed Miliband MP, Leader of the Opposition, said:

“Since the mid eighties, survival from childhood leukaemia in its most common form has risen from just 25% to 90%. That’s an amazing result, but the fight against leukaemia isn’t over. That’s why Beefy has been walking to raise money for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research, and that’s why he’s still going. He has shown amazing leadership in fundraising for this important cause, and I wish him very good luck for his walk this year.”

David Cameron, Prime Minister, said:

"It is fantastic that Beefy is putting on his walking shoes once again to raise money for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research. Twenty Seven years of walking and raising over £13 million for this worthwhile cause is a huge achievement. I hope that this year is another big success.  I’m sorry I can’t be with you but I will be supporting you every step of the way - good luck!"
