Typhoon Walk Relief

Malcoln Conlan a volunteer of Philippine Generations and founder of fil-event.com, he is a father of two and married to a Filipina. Malcolm is attempting to walk from his family home in Bromley to the Philippine Embassy near Trafalgar Square on Monday, 10 October. Which is about 10 miles and it will approximately take him 5 hours to arrive at the Philippine Embassy. He has no training, hardly walks anywhere and calls himself ‘unfit’. Why the challenge? He is doing this for a very good cause. Malcolm and his family watched the news from his home about the recent Typhoon Pedring, internationally named Nesat,  affecting so many people and taking many lives. Reportedly the death toll is 45 with 44 injured and 30 still missing, it’s like typhoon Ondoy all over again. Malcolm also helped fundraise two years ago at the Guanabana Gig, which was successful and raised over £2000.

Below is a short message from Malcolm:

“I never walk anywhere really and I am quite unfit, however I feel I must make some kind of personal effort to help raise funds for those affected by the recent Typhoon which has hit the Philippines so badly!
I have therefore decided to walk around ten miles next Monday and would love it if you could find a place in your hearts to spare a pound or two in sponsorship please!
Philippine Generations have very kindly agreed to help with this effort and will help send any money kindly donated to those in need.”

Maraming salamat po! Many thanks!

  1. Nice post. Thanks for sharing. I hope that preventative measures can be put in place soon. One thing that can be done which costs nothing is each individual take responsibility for their garbage and put it where it belongs instead of throwing it all over the streets, rivers, and everywhere else.
