We rowed 1800 miles in 8 one-week legs starting and finishing at Burnham-on-Couch in Essex.
I did it for three main reasons...
- Inspire older people to exercise - To do something practical to help with the increasing problems in the NHS and social care.
- Increase awareness about plastic pollution in the seas - To spread understanding about the severe environmental problems being caused by the dumping of plastic into the seas - in partnership with Sea-Changers.
- Support Lifeboats - To raise money for the RNLI.
And for a more personal reason.
I was helped by some wonderful people from these organisations.
