Thank you for helping me support my chosen charities - each of whom I have chosen because of a personal link to the causes they support. 

I hope you enjoy following my expeditions and are able to help me reach my target for the charities. 

Virging Money Giving is the most efficient and charity-friendly set up I have come across online and, if you are a UK taxpayer, Gift Aid will be added.

Thanks again,


...and my 'boys' - Gulliver, Nelson, Hercules - the rowing boat, kayak and bike
