The late Anna Swabey touched the lives of so many people, so even if your connection with her was purely through her blog, the family invite you to join us on a Charity Walk. Fundraising, is still as vital as always, but it is optional on this day and is secondary to our goal, which is simply to walk and remember Anna with love and laughter, in exactly the way she would’ve wanted. If you wish to join us, and we welcome everyone, young and old and anywhere in between, all we ask is this: Get in touch to let us know you’ll be there to walk with us. (Contact us through the Inside My Head FB page, or via email to This is to help us gain an idea of numbers and to let us know to wait for you before we start! It is almost a year since we lost Anna and we wanted to mark the day by inviting you  to join us on the afternoon of Saturday 16th September 2017 on the Great Aycliffe Way in her memory.

Wear something bright and cheery on the day – anything goes! Anna always embraced fun and individuality but for your own comfort and safety, remember to wear sensible shoes. Meet us on the car park at Cobblers Hall pub, Newton Aycliffe from 1.30pm and we will begin our walk at 2pm. The walk is approximately 5 miles (gentle terrain) and not intended to be challenging in any way. We estimate a maximum of 2 hours to complete finishing where we started, at the pub! Join us afterwards at the Cobblers Hall pub for drinks. So even if you are unable to join us for our walk, you are welcome to raise a glass with us afterwards. Bring your children, bring your dog, bring banners, balloons or just yourself. If you would like to make a donation or raise sponsorship for the event, we ask that all donations are made either directly to Anna’s justgivingpage (which currently sits at a whopping £117k) or in cash on the day and we will add it to her total on your behalf. ALL donations go to Brain Tumour Research Campaign. We invite you all to help us make, what will be an incredibly difficult day for Anna’s family and friends, into a day full of love and laughter so that we all remember our beautiful and brave Anna just the way she would’ve wanted.
