Save Our JIDC

Update posted by Emma Ainsworth On Jul 04, 2018

We need to give a huge thank you to you all, from everyone who walked the world to people who have helped spread awareness of JIDC. We have decided to continue our funding campaign, with walk the world being the first of many events.

We continued the success of the walk with a bake off at our JIDC UK base – Well, we had to ensure we gained all that weight back after the 5km burn. All the bakes were absolutely amazing, so another thank you to all our bakers and to everyone who came along to taste the bakes and donate to the “Save Our JIDC” campaign. We raised an amazing £261.79! This wonderful event has pushed our total donations to over £4000!

We had voting in the four categories – the winners were:

Yummiest savoury bake: James Goillau (Focaccia stadium & pesto pitch in tribute to the world cup)

Prettiest savoury bake: Celina Dietrich (Braided bread)

Yummiest sweet bake: Martyn Webb (Millionaires shortbread)

Prettiest sweet bake: Our own Gemma Langridge (Chocolate & raspberry chequerboard cake)

We will have more events in the future – if you would like to run your own fundraising event for JIDC please let us know. So please stay up to date with our campaign by visiting http://www.gogetfunding.com/save-our-jidc

Here are our JIDC campaigner’s stories…

Our marvellous Marie Anna Chattaway did over 7Km in 1hr 44mins in Atlanta, Georgia, United States. Why so long you ask? 1) The heat, it was like the midday on a UK heatwave, 2) The hills, even going downhill was going uphill, 3) No jay walking allowed, Marie had to wait 5 mins to cross the road, 4) Marie got lost but it took her 2km to work this out. (Thank goodness for the map my run app or else you might have never got back to the UK Marie), 5) she started to get blisters on both feet about 4Km in, and 6) did she mention the heat and hills?! I cannot say I have seen a dedicated geese crossing point ever before either… but well done on such a good job as always!


Our glorious Gemma Langridge and her family walked 5Km in Thetford forest which is on the Norfolk/Suffolk border (UK). Their walk may have been a bit circuitous at times but then again you cannot blame her when she had two small children to herd around. Apparently they are like herding cats… If anyone did that this year please add your opinions on the matter. Gemma also tackled this wobbly bridge for JIDC – I think the bridge won but at least her nails are still perfect!


Our jolly John Wain, alongside Leo Tyrie, walked just over 6km Kelana Jaya, Singapore. They walked through the urban jungle, from Tropicana Golf & Country Resort to St Ignatious Katolic Curch and back again, with only a small drinks stop due to the 30 degree Celsius heat and matching humidity. Well done, men! I think you deserve another one of those drink stops….

In the end I actually did my 5 km in Southwold, Suffolk (UK) with my fiancée, future in-laws and their dogs. We had a wonderful time and even stopped briefly in an amazing sweetshop - Our rotund jack russel was surprisingly not allowed any sweets though!


It was such a beautiful day for Minh-Duy Phan in Brisbane. We really hope you are okay after your contact with Daleks?

Ana Luisa Toribio Fierro walked 4 km along the Cam river before rowing for another 4km for JIDC. What an excellent way to do over 5km for JIDC – Thank you. We are all so pleased it was a lovely day for you and that it felt special to be joining in the same activity with dear friends in Mexico, Australia and all over the world! It felt very special for us all here too.

Silvia Pinero and her friend had a great time walking for JIDC in Irapuato, Mexico. Thank you ladies. Also, talking for 5km is a great achievement for JIDC too.

Alexx Elfy Haley and Emilie-Jane Osborne walked from Bournemouth Station, to Bournemouth Beach, all along the beach to Boscombe, through Boscombe high street and grabbed a quick rewarding Gin and Tonic before walking all the way back again. The weather was muggy but windy so we got the best of the heat and cool breeze. Thank you ladies, we hope the Gin and Tonics were refreshing and you enjoyed the sand between your toes.


Maria Grazia Del Giudice was walking with Giustina Casu in Alghero, Sardinia, Italy. I hope it was this beautiful on the day!35383764_10215444955104288_8249153491390431232_n

Only 2 days left until we all go on our little walk. It is unbelievable to think where the time has gone. I hope you are all excited and ready to join together to walk the world to save our JIDC. Recently we have had people from Myanmar, Cambodia and Malaysia join our campaign. Thank you to you all for helping to fill our world map up. If you would like to join us and colour enough country in there is still time, so please let us know your story.

Over the last week or so I have been amazed at the efforts our JIDC UK team has made at spreading the word for Save our JIDC around our base at the University of East Anglia. There were batches of free JIDC cookies to hand out, a world cup sweep stake to take part in and a charity bake off planned. Thank you to everyone for all getting involved. If you are similarly spreading the word for Save our JIDC in a different way please let us know, we are looking forward to hearing some great stories.

P.s. If anyone is wondering, of course Senegal are going to win the world cup this year....

With just 25 days remaining until the big day I hope you are all preparing your walking shoes. Joining our cause we also have Tahanee Bashir who will be walking for JIDC in Port Sudan, Sudan in North Africa. Please keep spreading the news of the campaign – Our global map is growing at a great pace and we are approaching the £3000 mark. Thank you all.

The last 24 hours have seen our walking pledgers soar. All I can say is thank you to you all on behalf of the JIDC and that we are all very luck to live in such a beautiful world. I am looking forward to seeing more stunning pictures of the places that people will walk to Save our JIDC. Does anyone know a Russian or south American up for a challenge? ;) Please keep spreading the word.
