My story

[p]My name is Simon Coates, and between 1st March 2021 and 31st October 2021 I will be undertaking the challenge to hike 2000 miles in aid of 16 charities whose work is close to my heart. I am aiming to raise at least £1000 for each of the charities I am supporting, and these funds will make a real difference in enabling the charities to continue their work and survive the extremely challenging times we find ourselves in.[/p][p]You can find out more about the challenge and keep track of how I am getting on on my website ([url=][/url]), by joining the challenge Facebook group ([url=][/url]) or by following me on Twitter ([url=][/url]).[/p][p][b]Clowns Without Borders UK[/b][/p][p]Clowns Without Borders UK support the emotional wellbeing of children living through disasters by sharing laughter and play. In disasters, the challenges of day-to-day life can be overwhelming for children. Making sure they have the freedom to play and relax is more important than ever. It helps them make sense of the world and provides comfort and respite when it is needed the most. Laughter and play are vital to the healthy emotional and psychological wellbeing of all children. That is why we share our playful performances in refugee camps and crisis zones around the world.[/p][p]You could give the giggles to a Syrian child in a refugee camp in Greece. You could help ensure Rohingya children in Bangladesh feel supported through play. And you could girls in Mozambique to feel more confident as they learn about their rights through play.[/p][p]From the bottom of our clown-shaped hearts, thank you for your support. We truly appreciate it.[/p][p]You can donate to this campaign in aid of Clowns Without Borders UK between 25th February 2021 and 31st January 2022, and anything you can donate will give invaluable support to allow the charity to continue their work.[/p][p]If you would prefer to send a cheque to the charity, you can write to them at the following address - please do include a cover note telling them your donation is as a result of my hiking challenge:[/p][p][b]Clowns Without Borders UK, 118 Sternhold Avenue, London, SW7 5JU[/b][/p]
