Story

I’m raising funds for TLC Children’s Home in South Africa by skateboarding 1000 miles from John O’Groats at the top of Scotland to Lands End at the bottom of England. I’ll have no support and will be carrying everything I need on my back. The challenge will take me about 6 weeks to complete.

TLC is run by my good friends the Jarvis family and was established to rescue the tiniest victims of a society in turmoil. Since they rescued their first two little ones in April 1993, they have continued to play a part in changing the destiny of more than 780 babies who have been abandoned or orphaned, as South Africa continues to be plagued by HIV-AIDS and unemployment.

Every baby at TLC is a part of the family and they fight for the rights of every one, seeking the best for each individual, always.

Being committed to this belief has meant that over time they have had to grow. The family has grown from five children to almost thirty; The nursery accommodates another thirty little babies between birth and three years; they are assisted by a fantastic
international team of 16 - 24 volunteer caregivers and employ a number of staff members to assist with administrative and domestic duties.

None of this would be possible without the ongoing, faithful support of TLC's friends all over the world.

Every £1 donated will go towards Infant formula, Groceries, Nappies and day to day running costs.
