We support and influence research, educate patients, public and professionals about bowel cancer and campaign for early diagnosis and best treatment and care for all those affected.

Hi, thanks for visiting my page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.

This challenge took place between Plymouth and Holyhead in a 14ft Bosun Dinghy. Mark and I made an attempt at our own world record of 309.25nm, setting a new distance of 331.5nm over 5 days. We are hoping to raise £5000 for the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity and Bowel Cancer UK. We are just waiting on the record to be confirmed. Thanks
