John O'Groats 2 Lands End fundraising page

My page:

Hi, thanks for visiting my fundraising page. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.

At the end of September 2012 I completed a cycle from Portsmouth 2 Penzance a total of 273 miles! raising money for Children In Need is the Plan. This will also be a personal challenge for me as before I created this site I haven't been cycling in over 20 years and that was only for fun nothing serious. On top of that have a prolapsed disc, am 47 years old and at the start of 2012 a bit over weight, well lot over weight really, since then I've lost nearly 3 stone! So now for the big one, John O'Groats 2 Lands End on May 6th 2013. The End 2 End or P2P (point to point, as it's sometimes called ) is likely to be around 900 miles! This time I'll have company, Colin McGregor a friend from work has said he is as mad as I am and would like to come, which is great news. Wish us luck.....

Below is a link to a Blog where my progress will be kept up to date

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.
