Many Strides and Bus Rides

London on foot, UK by bus


Welcome to my blog!  2017 is a special year for me.  My age will end in a 0 once more, so I thought I’d try to make it memorable.

My aim this year is to raise at least £500 for charity, and to do something new along the way.  Inspired by the books of author Mark Mason, I have decided to take on two challenges.  In June, I will be travelling from Land’s End to John O’Groats, using only local buses.  In addition to this, throughout the year I will be walking the London underground lines, overground.  (I don’t much fancy walking through tunnels, and I believe TFL frown upon it anyway.)

If you would like to sponsor me, my Underground Overground walk is in aid of the mental health charity Mind, you can find my JustGiving page here.

My Land’s End to John O’Groats is to raise money for Parkinson’s UK, and my JustGiving page is here.

If you want to find out more about the books that inspired these projects, Mark Mason’s website is here.  They’re a witty read, and full of interesting facts, some of which you’ll see in my posts.  You should buy them from Waterstones or your local independent book shop.  Bookshops are fabulous places!

I hope you enjoy reading about my adventures!
