The 5 Day Survival Challenge

Hi all,

Firstly, I know that this is now a year old - as you can see from the donations below - but the Challenge I was booked up for last September was cancelled, and has now been rescheduled for the end of June.

Two years ago  I abseiled 450 feet off Guy's Hospital Tower, resplendant in Lincoln City top and drenched in about a gallon of adrenaline.

This time it's a week of trial and toil, rather than twenty minutes of terror. I'm being dropped into an "as yet undisclosed wilderness location" for five days of survival and adventure. The event will contain fundamental (with the emphasis on the mental) aspects of survival which "will challenge participants from dawn till dusk and beyond" (oh, good). I shall be expected to build a shelter, locate and prepare safe drinking water, light a fire without matches, forage for food, identify edible plants, navigate by sun and stars, use improvised first aid...OK, I'm talking myself out of it now...I'm assured that it's a "fantastic mental and physical test" which will also give me a "huge sense of personal achievement". Hmmm.

So...officially...we're all back on and thank you for visiting this fundraising page, and huge thanks to those who've already donated. Please dig deep and sponsor me online.

Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Anthony Nolan Trust will receive your money faster and, if you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.

As always many thanks for your support.
