Hello there. Having once been a rather awful graphic designer who spent every day doing the same, grumpy thing, I decided that a change was needed. Now I'm dedicated to Expedition1000: 25 different journeys of 1000 miles or more, each using a different form of non-motorised transport.

In addition to spreading a positive attitude and being very Forrest Gump-like, I'm slowly moving towards raising a million pounds for charity, So far, with 10 journeys completed, a total of over £100,000 has been raised for charity, we'd love to keep raising more. 

My favourite cause is CoppaFeel! When my friend Kris was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 23 she turned her devastation into kickass and formed a charity dedicated to ensuring other young women didn't experience what Kris had.


We're supporting CoppaFeel! because it is truly impacting on people's lives. A breast cancer charity that uses all of its money and time to heighten awareness of the symptoms of breast cancer, ensuring women across the world don't end up being misdiagnosed like Kris.


Please dig deep and support a wonderful cause, your support makes all the pain and blisters worthwhile!
