Title: Sponsors required!

The charity Help for Heroes was set up to help provide better facilities for British servicemen and women who have been wounded in conflict since September 11 2001.  Having spent 9 years in the RAF and served in the Gulf supporting the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan I feel extremely supportive of the work that Help for Heroes does.

I have decided to try to raise 500 for the charity.  Starting on 8th July I am going to be doing the Coast to Coast Walk which starts at St Bees in West Cumbria and finishes at Robin Hoods Bay in North Yorkshire.  The distance of the walk is 181 miles.  The recommended time to complete the walk is 14 days.  I aim to complete the route in only 8 days.  On each of the 8 days, I will be walking a total of between 20 and 30 miles carrying all the provisions I need as well as my tent.
