I’m raising as much as I can to beat cancer - let's see how far we can get.

In memory of

Don Powell

Even in these crazy, horrible times, cancer is still here, still taking loved ones every day. So I’m raising money right now for Cancer Research UK. Even if Covid-19 makes the task difficult (getting to the Sahara), we will get this done, and my training has started (all but the warm weather acclimatisation). My natural northern complexion is between pasty white and translucent, so desert heat will be perhaps the biggest challenge.

It would be great if you could donate to my page today and help bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. We're raising funds in advance, but this page will have occasional updates, pics, and of course news of the trek when it happens - I'll be the bright pink one doubled over, applying bandages to my toes.

Thank you so much.

In memory of Don, my Dad-in-law, who we lost a few years ago to cancer.

Various social collecting



It all adds up, so great to add a lump from a summer of slow, socially distanced fundraising in person as well as online.

Just about to bank some cash donations from various socially distanced activities and picking up support along the way on training treks and climbs, which will get us to 80% of the target. So another push over Christmas and the New Year and we'll get there. Thanks for everyone's generosity - especially during these testing times.

So the pandemic has bumped the trek now to February, but we're still training and fundraising. So after some hiking in sunny Scotland, we're back to Yorkshire to hit the moors and autumn arrives with tier 2, maybe 3 restrictions. Back on the bike too.
