Lands End to John O'Groats by Kayak

My page:

Hi, thanks for visiting my page.

I've decide to Kayak from Lands End to John O'Groats in Scotland via the coasts and canals of the UK. I'm hoping to be able to complete the 1000ish miles in around a month, weather dependant.

Having been recently diagnosed with MS I found the information provided by the MS Trust really helped me, and although I didn't set out with the the view that this would be a charity event. If I can help to support their work in going for a paddle then great.

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.
