Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I'm walking the Pennine Way in 2019 as a personal challenge, one I had decided to do alone after a failed attempt in 2013. That failure affected me in more ways than I realised at the time, my mental health and confidence suffered as a result. I am lucky that I haven't suffered seriously with my mental health but I have people close to me that have. It's a serious issue in our society and the charity Mind offer vital services to help people with many aspects of mental health.
I hadn't initially set out to walk this route for charity, in my daily videos I opened up about my struggle to overcome feelings of failure due to my last attempt. I've had numerous private messages suggesting I should raise money along the way so here goes....
Any donation no matter have large or small would be greatly appreciated. It means a lot to me that people are following my adventure and are behind me 100% encouraging me to reach my goal. I know there are others out there who need support to just get out of the house each day and it's those people I'd like to be able to help.
