About my fundraising
In the name of charity, Ed & Conor will be taking on the Solent this June. A treacherous 1.2 miles of sea water stands between them and their intended destination, the Isle of Wight. It's doubtful they'll make it...
Yes, this is 25 miles short of a marathon and yes, there is a perfectly good ferry service. However, it is unlikely that anyone would sponsor them for using it.
More seriously, it is of course all in the name of a good cause - or two good causes in fact. Firstly, they aim to raise money for the West Wight Sports Centre Trust who organise the event. Secondly they hope to raise funds for the fantastic Whittington Hospital in north London.
We hope you agree that these are worthy causes and dig deep.
