My story

[p]Update 7th April: I have finally conceded that my planned trek will not take place on the 30th April due to the current travel restrictions. I have therefore re scheduled to start on the 30th September 2020. Thank you to all the people who have sponsored me to date - homeless charities need our support more than ever at this time.[/p][p]Hi, on the 30th of April 2020 I will be attempting to complete a 500 mile trek from France, across the Pyrenees and across northern Spain to Santiago. I will be following the Napolean route across the Pyrenees and the Camino Santiago trail across Northern Spain. The trek should take me 30 days and along the way I will be attempting to live on 15 Euros a day for food and shelter. I will be walking alone and carrying everything I need in my rucksack for the duration of the trek. I have decided to do the walk to raise money and support the homeless veterans living on our streets. National figures suggest there are between 6,000 and 10,000 veterans sleeping rough in this country. I believe that no person who has served our country and in many cases put themselves in harms way to protect us, should be homeless and living on our streets. As a veteran myself I understand the many challenges faced by armed forces personnel when they leave the service - homelessness should not be one of them!! [/p][p]For over 100 years, Stoll has proudly been helping vulnerable ex-Servicemen and women turn their lives around; giving them a home and the help they need to live happier, more sustainable lives. Too many veterans face the difficulties of homelessness on a day to day basis, that's why charities like Stoll exist. [/p][p]Stoll doesn't just provide a home, they support Veterans to build the confidence and skills they need to live independently. They provide a unique combination of high quality homes and life changing support services, from the Veterans' Nomination Scheme, Independent Living Service and their very own Health and Wellbeing programme. [/p][p]Any donation made is greatly appreciated and will enable Stoll to continue to provide the help and support vulnerable veterans desperately need to live as independently as possible, thank you. [/p]
