Hector is setting himself a challenge to walk between fifty and sixty miles per working week, ground-pounding a total of 2500-3000 over the course of one year.


Hector hopes to raise awareness and funds for Great Ormond Street's Children Hospital in London


Money rasied enables Great Ormond Street Hospital to provide world-class care for its young patients and their families and to pioneer new treatments and cures for childhood illness by:

Contributing to the rebuilding and refurbishment of the hospital

Funding the most up-to-date equipment

Supporting research into, and development of, breakthrough treatments

Providing accommodation and other support services for children and their families

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.


So please dig deep and donate now.

I've been hoofing-it to and from work (that's over 8 miles each way) for the last year to raise funds and awareness for Great Ormond Street Hospital. The end is in sight! The 3000 mile mark is fast approaching. Thank you all for your kind messages and generous donations.
