Story

** NEWSFLASH - we've hit the £10K target but PLEASE, PLEASE keep donating generously and let's just see how far we can go **

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

If you've arrived here you will already know that I'm planning to join the crew of a cruising yacht to circumnavigate the UK and Ireland starting on the August Bank Holiday weekend in 2011 and finishing some time in early October.

I thought it was a good excuse to try and raise a little money for a good cause.

Overgate Hospice looked after our friend Mark Brumpton, and his wife Jennie, through the hardest time of their lives.

Mark sadly passed away a while ago but the work of this incredible organisation goes on day after day.

I am funding my trip entirely myself so if you feel you can make a small donation to help the staff and friends of Overgate continue their vital work, 100% will go to the hospice and it would be greatly appreciated by everyone who relies on their support.   

More details of the trip can be found at www.circumnavigation2011.co.uk

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send 100% of your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please chip in whatever you feel you can afford.
