If you would like to show your appreciation for the information provided within the Greets Echo blog, please consider making a donation to Barnardo's.

Alternatively I would appreciate any donation for the following  endeavours:

My eldest son Luke said it was a pity I wasn't fit enough to join him on a trek to Everest base camp. This was like a red rag to a bull to an old man pushing 60.

This is what has been achieved as a result of this challenge.

1. Completed two marathons in a week. The Farnham Pilgrim Marathon (15th Sept) & New Forest Marathon (22nd Sept).

2. Trekked to Everest base camp

The above was a  challenge as:

a. The first time I completed a marathon it took 6 hours as I got lost and ended up running 29.6 miles.

b. In the London 10k I only achieved an official time of 46 minutes by attaching my timing chip to one of my sons shoes.

c. I am not what you would call in top condition.

If you donate, your money goes directly to Barnardo's along with any Gift Aid claimed.

My target was to raise £5303.52. This is £1 for every meter Everest Base Camp is above sea level.

Thankyou in anticipation to anybody who.donates.
