My story

<p>There are some things in life that capture your imagination and for us LEJOG is something that we have always wanted to do. &nbsp;As our family and friends know and I suspect our work colleagues dread; we never do anything by halves, why aim low when there are stars to be shot at! &nbsp;</p> <p>The Ultimate 3 (www.ultimate3.org) combines our passions for cycling and climbing and gives us both the chance to get to grips with kayaking of the Sit On Top variety.</p> <p>Colin says "I have been hugely impressed by the team at the Railway Children and what they have achieved. &nbsp;As a soldier I saw life at some pretty low ebbs in a variety of conflicts and in impoverished countries of the world but I have increasingly been struck by the scale of hardship here at home". Felix is a long standing supporter of the Railway Children having supported them for many years in a variety of ways".</p> <p>Felix says "the railway, is the artery which feeds so many economies and countries, it is also a magnet to isolated and vulnerable children, young men and women. &nbsp;In the UK alone over 100,000 children per year under the age of 16, run away from home and many of those are drawn towards our railway stations. &nbsp;The Railway Children charity aims to get to these street children before the streets get to them"</p> <p>Calls on our charitable nature are many and it is getting harder for smaller organisations like the Railway Children to make themselves heard and differentiate themselves.</p> <p>Thank you for visiting our page</p> <p>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.</p>
