Story

Hi, thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

As you may know by now I am about to embark on a pretty epic sailing adventure by taking part in 2 legs of the 'Clipper Round The World' Yacht Race for 4 months from January 2016. This will be an extraordinary personal challenge for me as I have absolutely no prior sailing experience but I am delighted to be doing leg 6 of the race to help raise awareness and valuable support for NMO-UK, a rare illness research foundation based in Liverpool.

With your kindness and generosity my aim is to raise £2K for NMO-UK.

A good friend of mine was diagnosed with NMO some years back, an autoimmune condition characterised by relapses (attacks) of the optic nerves (optic neuritis) and spinal cord (transverse myelitis) and now that I have the opportunity I want to do whatever I can to help people in his position.

Any support from you would be greatly appreciated and goes directly to this very worthwhile cause.
