Story

Thank you for taking the time to view my JustGiving page.

On the 15th of February 2020, I will be challenging myself to walk from Portelet to Town via the main roads and coastal paths in full firefighting uniform (kindly supplied by the Guernsey Fire & Rescue Service). The total walk will be approximately 15.4 miles / 24.7km and will follow the same route as the Guernsey Half Marathon - with the addition of 2.3 miles at the beginning from Portelet to the Shingle Bank Nature Reserve at the Route De La Roque (the starting point of the half marathon).

The firefighting uniform will consist of fire retardant trousers, jacket, helmet with chin strap and a self contained breathing apparatus cylinder.

50% of the donations will go to the Rotary National Bushfires Appeal (Australian) - supporting families who have lost homes, communities, friends and family members.

50% of the donations will go to WWF Australia (Registered charity number: ACN 001 594 074) - rehabilitating wildlife and restoring natural habitats affected by the bushfires.

People all over the world have been extremely generous during this crucial time in Australia however, I have selected two charities that have had slightly less public awareness as of late. I would like half of the donations to go toward humanitarian aid (Rotary Club) and half toward wildlife restoration (WWF).

BACK STORY - I spent 8 of my formative years growing up in Australia and as an Australian citizen, this is a cause very close to my heart. Although recent cooler conditions and rain have brought some relief, more than 60 fires are still burning in the states of New South Wales and Victoria. The country is still in the midst of the summer months therefore, more heat and windy conditions are forecast. It has been suggested it will take hundreds of years for the country to recover from this disaster which is why I want to help in whatever way I can - any small donation will help me in achieving my goal and will go a long way in helping Australian citizens, wildlife and habitats.

Thank you for your support.
