    The Pennine Way 2022

    From the 9th to the 28th of September, I will be taking on the challenge of a lifetime as I embark upon the 268-mile-long Pennine Way trek. And you can do it with me, virtually, from wherever you are in the world and at your own pace, whatever your ability.

    I will be completing the journey entirely self-funded but will be fundraising for my registered charity Pipal Tree which works in Nepal. Sixty percent of the funds raised will go towards our Gurkha Memorial Forest Park, a rewilding project as part of our Decade of Action to address the Climate Emergency.

    The Park will commemorate the Gurkhas who have served in the British and Indian armies since the Second World War. But it will also capture carbon, increase biodiversity and create a vital animal corridor for Nepal’s endangered wildlife.

    The remaining forty percent of funds will be allocated towards our other work that includes supporting marginalised communities, empowering women and girls and preparing for emergencies.

    Here's how it works. Our Gurkha Memorial Forest campaign officially launches nationally on the 28th May. Between
    then and the 28th September you can walk, run or cycle anywhere and record the distance you have travelled on a
    virtual map of the Pennine Way.

    If you can complete just 2.5 miles (4km) per day over those four months then you will complete the trek before me. There will be a leaderboard comparing your progress with other participants.

    From the 9th of September, I will be on your tail, on the ground. You can’t allow this 62-year-old to catch you! Maybe you can lap me….

    There is a £10 registration fee (you can donate more if you wish on which we can claim Gift Aid if you are a UK-taxpayer and are willing).

    We hope you will set up your sponsorship page here either as an individual or part of a team. I will set up a Facebook Group that will allow us to share our stories and progress. If you would like a real head start, you can get going today….

    Go on, you can do it, burn off some calories and have fun!
