The Grand, Folkestone.
While I was still walking, and raising awareness of ataxia (and fundraising for Ataxia UK), The Grand very kindly offered me some pretty amazing support on two separate occasions. First, by very generously donating a fabulous prize for an ataxia fundraising raffle, and later, by personally supporting me when I was en route to a 500-mile charity walk in Spain in 2016.
