Good evening Chaps,

Hope you are all well

I've been away for a while but be assured, I've been looking in as much as I can even if I haven't always posted

Recently I've been busy arranging a fundraiser for Help for Heroes.

Myself and Steffi will be walking from Le Havre to Cherbourg over a week to raise money for the boys and girls who put their lives on the line for Queen and Country. We'll be taking rations with us and camping along the way.

So, my question to you gents is will you sponsor me? I have set up a fundraising website, linked straight to H4H so any money donated goes straight to them.


I will take pictures along the way so If anyone wants pictures of anywhere drop me a line below and I shall see if its on route


My very best regards,

Tried (three timesface 4) to donate through the site, but wouldn't accept the cardcrying 2. Bank has confirmed all is well and no issues or transactions. Suspect the donation site may have a problem.

PM me your address / bank details and I'll send you a cheque (if I can find my chequebooknerd in the dust) or transfer some money direct. Might be worth having a word with the website.

Great cause and you have my full respect for doing something so worthythumbs up.

Hey Guys,

I shall make sure we take some sort of charger for the camera and will get PLENTY of pictures for you, I will try my best to get a day by day blog up retrospectively We should know how much actual sight seeing we can get in after the first days hike.

I know a lot of the museums aren't keen on photographs but I'd like to think I'm quite good at covert photography

Thank you all for your interest in this trip, the cause is something I feel very strongly about. Theres a fella from my school who lost half an arm and both his legs in Iraq , it's something that few of us could ever understand and something he will have to live with for the rest of his life.


I'll try to take as many as my memory card will allow :P Cheers for the support matey


Thank you for your generous donation Anything in particular you'd like to see pictured in the blog?


Thanks for the support


Hello Sir!

I have problems with that kind of stuff at work face 20 All I could suggest is to try again a bit later if you still have trouble PM me and I'll get some details across to you.

Mr. Hiscock!

Glad you support the cause I shall, on your recommendation, make a blog of the week I'm really looking forward to going, I've been once before but didn't get to see half the stuff I would have liked to sad Thanks for the support mate

Really glad so many of you appreciate why I'm doing this and want to help too

If you have any request for photos please feel free to post em up
