Story

Back before the Hospice Angels, my friend Mick Marshall and I took 'Frank' the horse to London. The trip ended up being one of the craziest boys adventures of all time and raised £12,500 for St Michael's.


Mick died on 11th May 2012 and ever since I have kept his memory alive by showing a film of our epic adventure to groups across Herefordshire, and in doing so raised an estimated £36,000.
This year, with support from Mick's family, I will be celebrating Frank's journey with a Lockdown 2.6 challenge.


Along with my friend Ben Lindon, who is living with a terminal illness, we are retracing 'Frank's Journey' on a virtual wheelchair cycle ride to London.


We will be sharing the 126-mile journey and hope our pedaling helps to raise £12,500 in memory of Mick Marshall.


Just three months before our original trip, Mick had an operation to remove a tumour from his prostate. He loved the idea of raising money for St Michael's, and our time together with Frank is one of the highlights of my life. 


Mick and I had planned to take another horse to Lands End with a gipsy caravan, but we never got the chance to take on another epic journey. Mick was a perfectionist in everything he did, and it will mean a lot to his wife and family to keep his memory alive with this 2.6 challenge.
