On Boxing Day 2015, whilst many were sitting down to enjoy those Christmas leftovers, Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team (CVRST) received an urgent request to provide immediate assistance with the severe flooding throughout the Calder Valley.
Receiving the news on Boxing Day that my home town was under water was heart-breaking. There is very little to say other than the floods caused utter devastation that has ruined many homes and lives which are still getting back on their feet to this day.
The support provided from CVSRT throughout was exceptional - Alex and I would like to show our gratitude and do our bit for CVSRT to keep their support going. It costs £35,000/yr for CVSRT to remain operational, and this amount is raised entirely through donations.
Please help us raise some money for this fab cause!

Event details

Saunders Lakeland Mountain Marathon

Over 2 days in July Alex and I will be competing in the Saunders Mountain Marathon in the Lake District.
As part of the challenge we will navigate between checkpoints carrying a backpack with our equipment, including overnight camping kit and food, as at the end of the first day we will finish at a mid-way wild camp.
I will also be dealing with Alex's constant jibber jabbering - a challenge in its own right!
