Story

Most Easters I support friends through the Devizes to Westminster Canoe Race, 125 miles worth of hard paddling over 4 days (or straight through if you're a maniac). This year it's cancelled but the organisers are running 'MyDW', a challenge to paddle 125 miles during the period of 2nd April to 6th June instead. So, this year I'm paddling not supporting!

I'm doing it to raise a little money for Combat Stress in memory of the sailors of HMS Coventry who did not return from the Falklands War in 1982, and those who have suffered post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) since. Combat Stress is the UK's leading charity for veterans' mental health For over a century they've been helping former servicemen and women deal with issues like PTSD, anxiety and depression.

If I can raise just £4 per mile I'll meet my target - I hope you can help! My progress in the challenge can be found here: https://gpx.peteispo.co.uk - and in the updates below!

Many thanks, Damien.
