Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

As you have found your way here then you probably know that 4 years ago I was very ill with a rare type of cancer. After 18 months of heavy chemotherapy, major surgery, radiotherapy and more chemo I was pronounced cancer free and now just have regular scans to make sure that all is well.

During this time I was mostly treated on the Teenage Cancer Trust ward at University College Hospital. After the support and care they gave me and my family I thought I should try to raise some money for them.

The Pennine Way is a 268 mile or 431 km long-distance path. It was the first National Trail in England and is probably the toughest. Not only will I be walking through some of the wildest areas of the country but I will have the added handicap of my Dad coming with me.

I was trying to raise £5 per mile but people have been so generous I am now aiming for £5 per kilometre. If you could give anything to help that would be great.
