Story

[p]My name is Frank and [span=background-color: #ffff00;]I am trying to raise £3900 by September[/span] in memory of a dear lost friend, Tom Allen for Meningitis now. Tom was always a happy, fun and much loved friend who was taken from us far too young. Tragically Meningitis was the cause of his passing and in this case, there were no visible signs of the illness until one morning he never woke again. I am hoping, with your help we can reach the above target by sponsering me in the below Events.[/p][p][span=background-color: #ffff00;]My main goal is to climb Everest (Base Camp)[/span] in late November this year but I also have another event planned to help raise as much money as possible to reach the £3900 target.[/p][p][span=background-color: #ffff00;]My other event is to Walk from Land's End to John O' Groats.[/span] Unfortunately due to reasons out of my control I am forced to push this event forward a lot sooner than I first planned therefore I know my limits will be tested as I will be underprepared and undertrained but I plan to try my very best. I will start this journey in a few weeks on the 10th May and hope to finish it in under a month (if there are no problems on the way). The distance will be roughly 900 miles and I will be travelling alone with only a rucksack and tent. The challenge itself I feel will be physically and mentally testing as it is but I plan on making this challenge tougher by also not taking any money with me. This will mean I will have to rely on the kindness of the people I meet on the way and accept only what is donated to me, that and what I can forage on my trip (including food and water). [/p][p]On a personal note, these events are very important to me, not just to raise money for Meningitis now in memory of Tom but for my own personal challenge. [/p][p]Last year I lost contact with someone I love very much and this has had a major impact on my life and on reflection of this, I have been trying very hard to better myself as much as possible and feel these challenges will test me positively and hopefully I can apply what I have learnt from this experience. [/p][p]Thank you for reading my story and I hope you are willing to donate to this cause. Anything you can contribute will be massively appreciated and hope I make it![/p]
