Story

I’m not putting it off any longer. I’m taking the DofE Diamond Challenge right now. Help me raise money to help transform the lives of vulnerable young people and to help others too... Read on.....

Ok, I'm awaiting ligament reconstruction on my ankle, so I am unable to do a physical challenge. So what can I do that uses all my skills? I have Mountaineered, Been an Army Reserve,  Leader of  Scouts and I've the skills to Survive in any Environment on Earth...I want to do something that benefits others too........Its a tough one....!

So, I have pledged to KNIT (yes, you read correctly), 60 Newborn Baby Hats for the special care unit at the Countess of Chester Hospital..

The hospital is where my son was born and recently my Grandson.

I have never knitted in my life and will complete the 60 Hats, Hopefully, before the 1st of August..wow this is going to be tough.

So come on, we can raise money for the D of E as well as giving a newborn a lovely gift. Either sign up to Donate or you can sponsor a hat for £2 and your name will go on a giftcard and given to the baby.
