      Simons Expedition - WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT

    Our fundraising pages 1

    • MrMatthewStrange

      Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

      I am walking barefoot, over 1,720 miles (2,700km) from Gibraltar to St Catherine's Hospice. When I complete this challenge it will be a new Guinness World Record!

      My Step-Dad Simon was admitted to St Catherine's hospice back in 2015. I was working abroad in Gibraltar and ended up getting the train to Madrid, a plane to Brussels and another flight to Manchester! This was the quickest way for me to get back home and I will be re-creating this journey for the World Record attempt. 

      Gibraltar - Malaga - Madrid - Paris - Brussels - Calais/Dover - London - Manchester - St Catherine’s Hospice, Preston

      Thanks for taking the time to read this story, please follow the challenge as it progresses and DONATE NOW!


      I’ve already climbed the tallest mountains in England and Wales barefoot as part of my training!

      Media Coverage

      - LEP (Twice)
      - BBC Radio Lancashire - With Sally Naden
