Story


Greetings! To celebrate my 60th year and to raise money for a good cause I have entered the World Bog Snorkelling Championship held in Llanwrtyd Wells in Wales on Sunday 25 August 2019. In a bog, obviously. I shall be dressed as a donkey in order to fully make an ass of myself and to reflect the charity I am raising money for. Spana supports working horses, donkeys and other animals in rural communities all over the world. These animals are often crucial to the survival of the families who own them and life can be hard for both animals and people. Spana offers veterinary care for the beasts and education for the humans.

In order to get bog-fit I shall be undertaking a strenuous regime of high intensity interval training, the intervals consisting mainly of cake and beer. My personal trainer has created a strict timetable, diet sheet and exercise programme. Oh how I laughed. This is a Welsh bog not the Olympics. If I die just remember I tried.
