Don't have time to donate right now?


In December 2019, my colleague Paul Hopkins and I will be taking part in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, one of the world’s toughest feats of endurance.

We will be rowing 2,550 nautical miles, from San Sebastian in La Gomera, Canary Islands, to Nelson’s Dockyard English Harbour, Antigua and Barbuda.

In the process, not only will we become the oldest team to take part – securing a place in the Guinness Book of World Records – but we’ll be raising money for two charities close to our hearts: Tiny Lives and The Fire Fighters’ Charity.

We already have our boat – it was hand-built 15 years ago and has already made the Atlantic crossing three times.

Will you help us make it a fourth?

We are looking for a company to sponsor our journey and help us raise funds for our chosen charities.

Our aim is to raise £30,000 for our charities. The sale of the boat after the race should raise £14,000 and we have already raised £7,000 ourselves. Could you help us by contributing the rest?

If you’re as excited about this opportunity as we are, we would welcome your help to get us in the Race and the ability to raise monies for these fantastic Charities.
