My story

Sue and I set up a fundraising page in April last year to raise much needed money for Youth Talk, a St Albans based charity raising money to provide free confidential mental health counselling for 13-25 year olds in St Albans and district.

This started with the 2.6 challenge which saw us cycling and running 26 miles (me), playing the saxaphone (me) and taking part in on-line Zumba & Pilates classes (Sue), 26 keepie-uppies (Lee) and a number of other activities. This continued onto Captain Tom's challenge with me, joined by both Adam & Lee cycling to Bristol, the St Albans Half Marathon and a Virtual London Marathon around St Albans boundaries

This developed into the 500 Miles & 500 more challenge attempting to cover a 1000 miles in the space of a year raising money for Youth Talk and National charity Prostate Cancer UK, walking, running and cycling inspired by The Proclaimers hit - see below

The latest challenge has a Christmassy go to every post box that has a yarnbombing Xmas topper - see below again! There are 82 of them that I aim to walk, run and cycle around. This should increase the mileage from the present total of just under 300 miles!!

Any contribution will be very gratefully received and help provide much needed counselling for the many children at present on Youth Talk's waiting list. Many thanks
