To kick off the final week of Clague Reconnect, Architect Kate Fisher gets out the trampoline to bounce her way to Chartham.



Always looking for new and novel ways to achieve things, this was an opportunity she could not miss to keep things interesting.  Having found herself in a ‘Bounce’ class almost a year ago, Kate found a new passion in her life that brought with it renewed confidence and new friendships.  ‘Bounce’ is a way of getting a whole-body cardio workout with toning using a trampoline, it is not just about bouncing and it is not as easy as it sounds.


Kate found out that 1 mile equates to 2000 steps, in accordance with Google, and she had to cover a distance of 9 miles.  She also worked out that to cover 2000 steps in bouncing she would have to bounce for approximately half an hour.

And so the challenge was set, over a succession of days and with massive commitment on Kates part, Kate and her trusty trampoline prepared to begin their journey, covering 20,060 steps, approximately 10 miles, and with 5 hours of bouncing ahead, it seemed like a long way off, but she did it, Kate successfully bounced her way to Chartham, and I think it’s safe to say that not many people can say they have done that before.

After a brilliant bit of Bouncing we must not forget what all this effort is for.  Please put your hands in your pockets for Kate’s unique efforts and contribute to the Pilgrims Hospice.  Donations can be made on the following link


So as we near the finish line for Clague Reconnect, with 2 of the team left to go, let’s take a moment to receive inspiration from Kate and utter the immortal words of one of Winnie the Pooh’s most beloved friends Tigger, and remember ‘Life is not about how fast you run or how high you climb but how well you bounce’

Next from Chartham to Canterbury for the Penultimate Leg of Clague Reconnect with Architect Philippa Cheetham.
