Charitable Ventures

Planned for Summer 2013 – to canoe the length of the Thames (all 215 miles of it) for a charity called Stop The Traffik. I’m undertaking this challenge with my daughter, Louise and whoever else fancies the adventure! We hope to raise not only large sums of cash for the charity, but raise awareness for the noble and important endeavour of stopping human trafficking. Stop The Traffik fights to PREVENT the sale of people, PROTECT the trafficked and PROSECUTE the traffickers. For more information, here is their website:

The JustGiving link will be put up on the blog as soon as I’ve started my canoe level 3 course (safety first!).
