Story

A big thankyou to all you amazing sponsers, obviously survived the walk, a phyiscal and mentally challenging time, but a fantastic experience, meeting some amazing people along the WAY .. Altogether we have managed to riase around £17,000 ..00 including gift aid..70% over target ..

Macmallian were delighted, albeit I was the man on stage this figure would'nt of been achievable with out your generous support ..

Many thanks from Myself and Macmillan nurses, we all made a difference to someone  ...!!  

 

 

On the 5th April 2014 I fly to Madrid then take a 4 hour train journey to Leon where the walk begins on the 6th, I am walking just under a marathon a day through 15 towns in 14 days. follow me on ..

Currently I am training 3 to 4 times a week to get my fitness to its ultimate peak, believe it or not to those who know me I've packed up the fags, 7 months now..! ok a couple of weak ponits over the festive period but back on track now..

I have chosen this walk as I have a fondness for Spain and the Camino walk is notorious, apparently St James the Apostle formed this Pilgrimage and is believed he was buried in Santiago where my walk completes on the 18th April. I have uploaded some footage and photos for you to snoop through.Also big thanks to Maria at Camino Ways who has made this walk possible for me.    

Cancer is something that we all unfortunately get involved with either directly or indirectly, so im dedicating this walk to the Macmillan Nurses, I am sure we are all guilty of not knowing about subjects unless your involved personally or with someone close, neverless I have got to say I didn't really have a clue that these truly amazing people do their work all at the aid of charity, that is just something else..!

So my goal is to raise enough money to cover a nurse's salary for the year!! is that a tall order!??

Well, I am giving up my time and pushing my personal boundaries well beyond my comfort zone for these guys,and naturally its only YOU that can a make a difference with me!! 

So please dig deep its a great cause every penny counts.. !! 

 In between times our three offices will be hosting a coffee morning each next year, The guys & girls who work with me will be your perfect hosts . I will keep you posted when these dates are, each office will have a different morning, so I can be there.

 I will pour the coffees, cake making is not my bag :-)) 

22nd February  Stevenage coffee morning    we  raised £317.00

8th March Great Ashby coffee morning   we raised £610.00  

22nd March  Harlow coffee morning we raised

£715.00

On behalf  of all the offices, may I say a big "Thankyou" to all the local businesses that donated prizes for the raffle draw  .. Great support!!
