Project aim

She suffers from Ehlers Danios Syndrome and is reliant on others to push her wheelchair, with these aids, she can leave the house independently & go shopping or visit friends. 

About the project

I will be doing a 3000 mile round trip, from Dunnet Head, the most Northerly point on the mainland, not from John O'Groats, that's not the most northerly point & everyone else does that :-) to Sabarat, southern France. I will be funding the trip myself, the money raised will be used for purchasing the mobility equipment. I have bought a new tent & joined the Youth Hostel Association in case I need a roof to sleep under, given the changeable weather :-) 

That is one pound for every mile, if you are kind enough to support this project I will send you a groatie buckie, a Northern Cowrie (cyraea europaea), having one of these shells is considered good luck & if you keep one in your purse, it is said that you will never run out of money. Thank You.
