Charity walk from Debenhams Wigan to the Manchester Store 1975. I am the one with the L-Plates on, and I was actually on roller skates when the photo was taken but I soon abandoned them!

Thankyou, everyone, for those lovely compliments. You have made me feel it was last week instead of almost fifty years ago!

That's right Colin. We had just walked up from Debenhams. I can't remember which way we went after that! I know we didn't walk all the way to Manchester....we were taken part of the way but we walked some of it. When we got to the Manchester store we were taken to the canteen and I remember some rather dry and curly sandwiches which had been put out for us....I think they'd been there since Adam was in nappies! But hey-ho.....at 22 you just take things in your stride!
