raised of £1,500 target by 88 supporters

    Weʼve raised £2,313 to To help furnish and adapt housing for Royal Marine Veteran, who having suffered a stroke, fell on hard times with no support

    Funded on Tuesday, 3rd May 2022

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    So thats me registered! No going back now!!

    I’m aiming to complete the 160 miles in 65-70 hrs, have a maximum of 108 hrs to finish but I’ll take just getting to the end😂

    In past runs I’ve raised money for Forces and Veteran charities but this time it will be more “personalised “ as I’m not entirely convinced the money goes to those who really need it!

    Recently I heard a story of a Royal Marine, a legend who had served 37 years fall on hard times after suffering a stroke, sleeping on his daughters sofa as he needed to be closer to the toilet and had mobility issues...

    Local housing authorities refused to help and stated that they didn’t recognise the Armed Forces Covenant...

    It took pressure from the media, sympathetic local MPs and of course the brotherhood of Bootnecks to finally secure “Whispering George” a 1 bedroom bungalow a stones throw from his daughter!😎

    My goal is to raise funds to make the property livable with George’s mobility issues and to furnish said property.

    You can follow me enroute by visiting the race website, click on Spine Race Challenger North and look for competitor 762. Any donations will be gratefully received!🙏
