After my toughest challenge to date in 2014, where I climbed for over 3 weeks trekking through some of the most soul destroying conditions to reach Mount Everest Base Camp. Once there it was then that I realised what the next few hours would do to my mind and body. I started the decent by taking part in the official 26.2 mile Mount Everest Marathon. It took me 26 hours to complete and sometimes I would be running at night. The kindness of the locals and Sherpa's kept me going and help me through.  Now they need my help!  Spirit Of Adventure Take Two! Will raise vital funds for the Recent Disaster in Nepal! Please help..!

After the success of Gentlemen's Spirit of adventure last October, raising an amazing £11,000 on the night. We are doing it all again at Ravenwood Hall Hotel. On the evening of Friday the 12th June (from 6pm) we are hosting a fantastic night with.....

Facing one of my biggest challenges to date. Ravenwood Children's Trust is pledging to raise vital funds this year to support the Odanadi project in India, St Nicholas Hospice Bury St Edmund's and the Children's Ward West Suffolk Hospital and East Anglia Children's Hospice.

ODANADI PROJECT INDIA. I recently visited India in November 2013 to see the progress being made to the project. I was honoured to meet Stanly and Parashu along with all the volunteers who help and run this incredible safe house. I was amazed and thrilled to see the difference made with the boys safe house. We only started supporting this project in 2013 and have already donated £10,000 to complete the building work. Odanadi is making a difference to the lives of children in India who have been affected by human trafficking. Children as young as 5 years old are taken from the streets or sold to the sex trade in India, the forgotten children. Project leaders Stanly and Parashu are dramatically improving both the health and education through participation in a rehabilitation programme ensuring the children forge their own lives independence and success. The project still needs to complete the food hall and conference centre with on- going cost through the year. We want to help raise another £10.000 to complete the project and provide the much needed safe environment the children need. http/

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 and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer.
