Walking from Lands End to John o'Groats

A gruelling test of mind and body? Or a glorified pub crawl? It's probably something in between. Whichever, it seems like a good idea to try to raise some money while I'm wandering the contours of our wonderful countryside.

St Michael's Hospice in Basingstoke is a very worthy cause. It will put a spring in my step if you could donate something.

My target of £1000 represents around £1 per mile walked. I'll be thrilled to reach that goal.

I'm going to post my progress on my website - feel free to see how I'm doing:

Update 13 June 2015 - Target reached!! Thank you so much everyone. But don't stop donating, I'm not finished just yet ;)

Update 19 June 2015 - I've finished! Thank you everyone for your support. You can still donate though :)
