I am walking 5,000 miles to raise £20,000 for the Brain Cancer Foundation Fund after my wife Trish had a operation to remove an orange sized tumour during May 2019. Fortunately the tumour was benign.

I am a 71 years old Yorkshire man from Hull. I set off from Grimsby on the 12th April 2018 on a 5,000 miles coastal path walk around the UK in an anti-clockwise direction. On the 14th July 2019 I arrived back in Grimsby having walked 3,700 miles around the entire coastline of England and Wales

Just 3 days later I set off on the 600 miles trek from Berwick on Tweed to John O,Groats arriving on Sunday, 22nd September having walked the entire East coast of Scotland

The final 700 miles walk along the west coast of Scotland from Gretna Green to John O'Groats will commence in Spring 2020 to complete the full circuit of England, Wales and Scotland. I plan to walk the coast of Northern Ireland in 2021

It has been an amazing adventure every inch of the way. I have been fortunate in meeting hundreds of like minded coastal path walkers from all over the world, many of whom have become good friends

I am an avid film maker, and each day I have produced a 30 to 40 minutes vldeo showing the daily walk, with brief conversations with the people I met along the way. The vlogs are tastefully edited with fitting suitable gentle music and appropriate commentary.

There are 320 vlogs covering each day on my Youtube and Facebook site, which has viewers from all over the world.

Please join me on Jim’s Coastal Path Walk around the UK, and please donate to a very worthy cause. A big thank you to those who have already donated.
