Story

PART ONE COMPLETE!

Despite the Easterly winds, Steve and Al successfully joined 23 others and completed the Coast to Coast cycle challenge May 19th/20th. It was a fantatsic weekend and completed in 17 hours 4 minutes (give or take a few pub stops!).

NEXT  we put on our hiking boots and join the British Olympic Foundation in China to walk the Great Wall for 7 days, with an average of 6 hours trekking a day.  Money raised from both the challenges will support Steve's own children's charity COCO, which do fantastic work with youngsters all over the globe, and the British Olympic Foundation,which aims to create learning opportunities for young people through sport and education to encourage personal development, fair play and personal excellence. Both fantastic causes close to Steve and Al's heart who will benefit hugely from your generosity.

Thank you for visiting our fundraising page. Please dig deep and sponsor us online.

Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to sponsor me: COCO will receive your money faster and, if you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.

So please sponsor us now!

Many thanks for your support.

Steve and Al, the intrepid explorers!
