Story

Hello and welcome. From September 2014 I'll be cycling and rowing as far around the world as my chicken-legs and scrawny-arms will allow me.

It's always been an ambition of mine to do something really meaningful for Macmillan Cancer Support after they helped me recover from cancer as a ten year old.

Having cycled 2,000 miles from Birmingham to Lagos, on the south coast of Portugal I then broke 3 Guinness World records for rowing from Lagos to Trinidad, a 51 day row across the North Atlantic ocean.

I will now cycle from the east coast of South America to the west coast, cycling through the Amazon rainforest and over the Andes mountains.

A big challenge requires a big fundraising target, so I'm aiming to raise £240,000 - enough to help fund a chemotherapy suite in a hospital.

Donating through JustGiving is totally secure and every penny you donate will go to Macmillan and towards improving the equipment and resources to help people through chemotherapy.

Thank you for visiting my page and any donations no matter how big or small will be massively appreciated.
