Challenge for Coap Hadrians Wall Trek

Thanks for visiting my page.

I volunteer for COAP (Children of Addicted Parents and People) working on promotion of the charity and out reach to schools to raise awareness of parental alcohol addiction that sadly affects as many as 7 million children.  

I have been personally affected by parental alcoholism, so I am passionate about this cause.  Here is a link to the article in the Daily Mail, where I shared my story publicly for the first time as I want others to realise they are not alone.

The Charity continues to support many young people and has around 25,000 visits to the site a year and nearly 3000 posts to the message boards by young people. My goal is to help them by raising funds to support the valuable work they do.

This will be a great personal challenge and fits well with our endeavour to break down the walls of silence surrounding the subject of parental addiction.  I will be funding all expenses myself so all money raised will go directly to the charity.

I really appreciate all your support and thank you so much for any donations.
