5 weeks to go

And so the date draws nearer.

It is now only 5 weeks on Saturday until I leave these shores, hop on a plane and go trekking across a desert.
I am now on the final push for my fundraising, if you haven't sponsored me so far, please please do add your name to the page by following the link above.

So, logistics wise - I now have my Tanzanian Visa safely implanted into my passport and today realised the need to check up on my immunisation status before I leave.
Training has been stepped up with the purchase of a new road bike enabling me to get some miles under my belt along with regular treks around the park at lunchtime of course!

It now looks increasingly likely that the Charity Auction will take place after my return from Africa as dates and times are running out fast - please watch this space for details.

Again, thanks to all for your support
Bye for now

A year on!

One year ago I announced my intention to take part in a Charity Challenge to 'celebrate' the passing of my 30th Birthday. Tomorrow is my 31st birthday and I am happy to report that I am now in the final stages of my fundraising for my trip to Kenya and Tanzania leaving in 50 days time!

My current total stands at a fantastic £2693.15 after some much appreciated hard work and effort from friends and family. Thankyou all.

I am now on the final push to my £3000 target (and beyond if possible) so please, if you are still contemplating sponsoring me then follow the link at the top of the page and add your name, quite literally, every pound counts.

I still have plans for the Charity Auction that was postponed from July and I am looking into alternative venues and dates for this to take place in the Autumn. Please watch this space.

In the meantime, thanks again

Kind Regards
