The Big Blue Sea Kayak
The plan. An attempt to sea kayak solo and unsupported from Lands End to John O Groats (or around Britain if I am enjoying myself - the circumnavigation). The challenge will be for the Fire Fighters Charity (they provide mental and physical rehabilitation for injured service personnel), and Whale and Dolphin Conservation (the leading global charity dedicated to the conservation and protection of all whales and dolphins) and to help supply fire fighting equipment to the State Emergency Services of Ukraine by supporting an appeal from Fire Aid.
I have chosen these charities as they link my experience and work as a fire fighter and marine biologist. In a small way I have tried to help both people and the planet we live on. Add to this the Ukraine war in which we can see both the worst and best of peoples actions. It has given me the desire to do what I can for the brave men and women of the Ukraine Emergency Services. So, I will take on a physically and mentally demanding challenge that will involve risk, discomfort, hunger and a few aches and pains. In doing so I hope to highlight the works and demands of the emergency services, encourage anyone struggling to get support and raise some funds. Now the lighter. I am also hoping people will enjoy the wildlife I encounter and marvel at the scenery.
Please take a look at the website Bigbluekayak.com. It will tell you all you need to know. And thank you for whatever donation you can give. If we all can do a little bit of good, just maybe we can make a difference.
