About my fundraising

Hi and thanks for visiting my fundraising page!

At the ripe old age of 46 I've come to the conclusion that I'm in the midst of having a midlife crisis!! So - I figured instead of buying a Harley Davidson or running off with somebody half my age, I would put the nagging sense of my own mortality, mixed with the feeling that 'I've not done enough' to some good use by setting myself a very nasty challenge and at the same time raise some money for a wonderful cause!

That cause is The Stable Family Home Trust (AKA The Stables) based in Bisterne, Hampshire (my wife Fiona works for them). The Stables provides a wide range of services to people with learning disabilities and their families: supporting lives in residential homes, offering a personal development programme, domiciliary support, and supported living. In a nutshell, they do some truly brilliant stuff for the people they support.

The challenge I've set myself is to complete the 'Race to the King' ultramarathon on...more more
