About me ...

Just a normal kid doing something special ...

I'm just a normal everyday teenager that does something special in their spare time.  I started fundraising when I was 9 years old, I am 17 years old now and still going strong.


I really enjoy meeting people and I love anything sporty.  When I was younger most of my charity  challenges were on foot , I cycle most of my challenges now so that I can cover larger distances.  


There is nothing I like more than spending time with my grandad, carp fishing or eating pie and mash.  It's the simple things in life that matter.


I am currently studying for my A levels and my subjects are Economics, PE and Business Studies, I hope one day to be a stock broker but to still carry on with my charity work.


I have been fundraising for a long time and I have been really lucky to have met some lifelong friends who help me with my fundraising, many of them are now my extended family.


I play football for my local team but I rarely speak about my fundraising with people my age, I choose to keep my fundraising separate from my school and personal life.  Sometimes my friends are really surprised if they hear what I have been up to or what I have achieved.


I have a little Jack Russell called Maggie who is a brilliant footballer too, she a bit crazy even though she is getting old now.  Maggie has walked with me on challenges too.
