We provide the support needed to give homeless young people a future


My attempt to become the first person to solo kayak the world's longest lake.

This summer I will attempt to solo kayak Lake Tanganyika in East Africa. My route will take me from the lake's southernmost point in Mpulungu, Zambia to it's northernmost point in Bujumbura, Burundi. If successful, I will be the first person to complete this voyage solo. 

The trip will raise money for Centrepoint- a charity that helps out homeless young people all over the UK, with the goal of ending youth homelessness by 2037. 

The pandemic has been a tough time for everyone, but for many it has tipped them over the edge. It's so important that, as a country, we help these people back up again.

 If you've ever wanted to help out a homeless person, but been reluctant to give out cash, then donating to a homeless charity is a great way to make a difference.

I would be massively grateful if you could donate using the link below. Thank you.
