Story

"There can be no place more desolate, despairing and awful."

The challenge is to land on Rockall and survive solo for 60 days on this isolated rock thereby setting two new records:

1. The longest occupation of Rockall in history;

2. The longest ever solo occupation of Rockall.

Only four people have ever spent more than a few hours on Rockall. To put this in perspective, approximately 2,000 people have stood on the summit of Everest since 1953, 12 have landed on the moon in the 40 years since 1969, and over 1,000 visit Antarctica every year. The motivation behind this enterprise is primarily to raise funds for ‘Help for Heroes’. For more information, please visit www.rockallsolo.com.

Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It’s also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Help for Heroes gets your money faster and, if you’re a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation.
