Story

Hello lovely people.

In May 2019 I'm going to attempt to walk from John O'Groats in Scotland to Lands End in Cornwall, partially as a challenge for myself and to raise awareness of Mens Mental Health.

I will be completing this challenge in support of Mates in Mind, a charity who are working hard to raise awareness of Mens Mental Health in the construction industry.

I have battled mental health issues in my life and with the support of great family and friends managed to learn how to control my problems and in some case use them to my advantage.

We all need a little help from time to time but for some who find it hard to communicate or understand their problems the world can feel a very dark and lonely place. I want to help by encouraging people to talk and for others to listen. Sometimes all it takes to make a difference is a kind understanding ear.

My challenge will see me cover approx 900 miles of our beautiful country, with just my two feet and a hiking trailer I aim to get started in May and be finished by my 40th birthday in July.

This challenge is costly, I need to purchase equipment, food, training and locate a small support vehicle for emergencies which will also carry fresh socks which I think I may need a lot of!!!!

Please help if you can, if not financially encouraging words are just as valuable. I will be creating a Facebook page (Two Feet One Wheel) in the near future which you are welcome to follow.

Many thanks.. Love and happy thoughts to all.
