Thank you for visiting my fundraising page.

This sailing trip around Great Britain will take three months and visits over 60 destinations.   I am hoping there will be many enjoyable moments and I am particularly looking forward to the West Coast of Scotland.  I am also sure there will be difficult moments; bad weather, cramped accommodation and boredom.

I realise how very fortunate I am to be able to make such a trip, so I wanted to use this opportunity to try and do something good for others much less fortunate.  I have chosen an educational charity as I believe education and learning are so important to resolving much that is wrong in the world today.  I am a Governor of a local school and the school has links with "Link Ethoipia", a charity dedicated to supporting education in Ethiopia - see below for link to the charity web site.   I was also born in Africa; it is a wonderful country that I hope you have the chance to visit at some point.

If you decide to donate, please do so through Justgiving ie this site.   Justgiving is quick, easy and secure. Its also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Link Ethiopia gets your money faster and, if you’re a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation.

Please donate to my chosen charity - it will mean a great deal to me and I know it will go a little way to making our world a better place.
