Most Easters I support friends through the Devizes to Westminster Canoe Race, 125 miles worth of hard paddling over 4 days (or straight through if you're a maniac). This year, due to an error involving drinking and saying "Yes", I'm paddling not supporting, with my friend Marion shouting at me from the back seat.
I'm doing it due to stupidity, obviously, but also to raise a little money for Combat Stress in memory of the sailors of HMS Coventry who did not return from the Falklands War in 1982, and those who have suffered post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) since. Combat Stress is the UK's leading charity for veterans' mental health For over a century they've been helping former servicemen and women deal with issues like PTSD, anxiety and depression.
If I can raise just £8 per mile, I'll meet my target - I hope you can help!
