Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. We all must know someone, or know of someone who has had prostate cancer. It is an illness that can be largely nullified through early detection and treatment but sadly many men still die from the disease. Having climbed the Three Peaks last autumn with a large group from Winners Gym in Torbay in aid of Rowcroft Hospice, I thought I would like to try and raise money for Prostate Cancer UK in their fight to save men who are at risk. I hope you will support me in this adventure, either through sponsoring me on-line, by sharing with friends, family and work colleagues, or simply by following me to see how I get on.

As a keen walker, I have always wanted to do the Two Moors Way (or Devon Coast to Coast Walk) from Lynton in North Devon to Wembury in South Devon, and I aim to complete this on my own in 6 days from Sunday 4th - Friday 9th August, sleeping rough in a simple 1-man tent along the way and stopping off at a different pub every night for 5 nights. The guide books state it is 117 miles in length, and I'll be passing through the national parks of Exmoor and Dartmoor, as well as crossing Devon's two major arterial roads - the A30 and the A38. I am hoping friends, volunteers, anyone in fact can join me in the evenings to bring me my packed lunch for the following day, and of course buy me a drink!

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
