Hi, thanks for visiting our page.

We are driving across the world from the UK over Russia and Asia to Australia. In the process, we are raising money for 2 charities close to our hearts - Support Our Paras and Anthony Nolan. 

Why we chose Support Our Para

As serving member of the parachute regiment, Haydon knows first hand the vital work the charity does for serving and former parachute regiment soldiers returning from the recent conflict in Afghanistan. Being one of the lesser know charities, we hope that this trip will raise awareness and bring in the much needed support for the charity.

Why we chose Anthony Nolan

For someone in need of a transplant, finding a match is crucial. The bigger the register, the better chance of finding a match. There are 37,000 people in the world waiting for stem cells, and 1,800 of them are in the UK. But even with 22 million people registered as potential donors around the world, we can’t find a suitable match for all of them. In the UK,  there are only just over half a million people willing to donate. Through our expedition, we hope to raise awareness of the important work Anthony Nolan does and encourage anyone who can to become a donor. Me-An and Haydon are registered donors.

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.
