The Joseph Salmon Trust

Fellow blogger Dan and some friends are supporting this very worthy cause with (by his own admission) an uncharacteristically physical endeavour - to complete the 78 mile Dales Way. Here is why...

"Joseph was a happy, healthy three year old who loved life. He enjoyed playing with his toy trains, his cars and his pretend kitchen. He had a busy social life, with lots of friends from nursery, friends who lived nearby and his little sister. He enjoyed cooking with his mummy, going on trains and buses with his daddy, and playing outside with anyone who would join in. Joseph had a passion for books and had just started to ‘read’ them to his younger sister.It felt like his life was just beginning.This all changed on 1st April 2005, when Joseph died. He did not suffer, he simply fell into a deeper sleep from which he never awoke.

The Joseph Salmon Trust has been set up in his name. It is a small charity whose aim is to offer financial assistance to people living in the Huddersfield area, whose child has died."

You can read more about the walk, the trust and how you might support it in this post at All That Comes With It. (I warn you now, it almost made me cry in the middle of a busy office.)

Hats off to Dan and Co for a great endeavour. But between you and me, boy have they got some training to do if it ain't gonna hurt!
