Story

I served with the 2nd Battalion Parachute Regiment and have had some challenging times since returning to civilian life. As a single parent, I've been bringing up my daughter for the last ten years and SSAFA have really helped me keep my head above water throughout that time. I have experienced first-hand what they do and I honestly don't know where I would be without their help and support.

Having recently finished school, my daughter is now moving to attend college in Bournemouth, where she will stay with family. This recent development has left me to re-evaluate a few things and has offered the opportunity for me to give back to those who have helped us so much.

I am in my element when outdoors, from surfing and coasteering to intense physical training, which has hopefully prepared me for the task ahead - a walk of approximately 14,000km.

This will obviously not be a walk in the park - I am starting with no money and will be solely relying on the goodwill of the British public and companies donating what food, water, accommodation and equipment they can to help me on each leg of the journey. 

I leave on 1.8.17 at 10am from Llangennith Beach Hill End Car Park.

I'm overwhelmed by the support and generous donations so far, please follow my journey and come and say hello if you spot me along the way!
