With whole hearted thanks to…

Dove Step supporters; BlackBar Brewery, Bridgedale Socks, Inglorious Bustards and Opticron.

Dove Step team mates; Malcolm Fairley, Sven Wair and Robert Yaxley. 

Dove Step artist; Gyr Crakes aka Mark Lawlor.

Operation Turtle Dove and SEO members for promoting the Dove Step message and JustGiving page throughout the walk. 
The family, friends and colleagues who allowed me to get into the correct physical and mental state to complete the challenge. 

Everyone online who has liked, shared and upped the JustGiving total. Dove Step has 3 aims for Turtle Doves; endurance, awareness and fundraising. All three of these have been fulfilled in spades over the last month and I couldn’t be happier. I tried my absolute best for 28 days straight, regularly reaching and surpassing perceived limits. Certainly on a daily and at times an hourly basis!
Thanks to everyone for making Dove Step 3 everything it could be.

Please don’t forget Turtle Doves and please don’t forget Dove Step!
