    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    I recently suffered a slipped disc, which has put me out of action preventing me from going on country walks, which is something I love, so as a goal for my recovery I have decided to attempt the `Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge.

    As an added incentive I have decided to try to raise money for the new Heywood Rangers guiding group, this will help girls 14-18 achieve some amazing things, and as a new group they need all the money they can to make as much difference as possible.

    I haven't fixed an exact date as yet, however midd June is the likely time. I'll update this page as I work out more details.

      I've managed to get the MRI scans working properly and extracted a couple of images to show the damage to my spine. The lower disk of the two that have gone actually has a tear. The physio is going well, though last week I had a bit of a relapse it was no where near as bad as it was when I first did it, though it did nearly have me off work. Thank you so much to those who have either given a little something or shown support, both are very much appreciated.

      New rucksack ordered, it's small 14L which is as much as I need for a summer day walks. The important bit is that it has a frame and a well padded waist belt this will lift the weight of my shoulders and put it on my hips, this reduces the risk of compressing my spine during when walking.

    At 51 I've been walking the hills and more for years, after a recent back injury I've had to stop for now, however like many other people I will get myself fit and walking the hills again, this challenge will help me but more importantly help the new Heywood Rangers.
