“Solo Round Britain is both a personal challenge for me but also an opportunity to make a real difference to my chosen charities. Our family has been touched by each of the conditions I seek to support: Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis Society, British Heart Foundation and Cancer Research UK. Progress is being made in terms of research and it is towards the research activities at each of the medical charities I wish funds to be directed to. If we can put cash and brains together, progress can be made. Ocean Youth Trust Scotland carry out life changing experiences for young people aboard their sail training yachts. Thank you”

British Heart Foundation is the nation’s heart charity with a vision of a world where people don’t die prematurely from heart disease. This can be achieve through pioneering research, vital prevention activity and ensuring quality care and support for everyone living with heart disease. Donations will be directed to the Mending Broken Hearts Appeal. At the moment, there’s no cure for a broken heart. Once your heart muscle is damaged by a heart attack, it can never fully recover. But there is hope. We need to spend £50 million to fund groundbreaking research that could begin to literally ‘mend broken hearts’ in as little as ten years time. DONATE or text HART58 to 70070
