Charity Registration No. 1157579

Story

 

In 2009 My wife, Sophie was diagnosed with MS . Overcoming MS is a small charity that Sophie discovered and it has been the one source of info and support that she has found to be invaluable. So I figured it would be nice to do my bit and put myself through some hardship in order to persuade you lot to part with lots of money. By the way...Sophie really doesn't want any sympathy, or any "oh no, how terrible for you" or any of that kind of soppy stuff.......she just wants your cash....so get donating and spread the word! 

In 2015 I completed the World Marathon Challenge. 7 marathons in 7 continents in 7 days. 

This year Oscar, my eldest son, was the youngest finisher of the Marathon Des Sables from GB  

In December, We are in a team, which also includes my eldest brother Myles, who aim to be the first people to row the Atlantic in under 30 days. We will row for 24 hours a day, sleeping for two hours at a time and rowing for two hours at a time.

We will be raising money for Overcoming MS,
