Why am I doing this? Because women and men are different and too many women become caught up in the criminal justice system which is almost exclusively focused on dealing with men. There are far better ways of dealing with women and Griffins provides evidence to change the way women are treated. Every year the charity funds up to 6 fellowships for those working on the front-line who want to make a difference. To find out more, visit the charity's website:

Event details

Meandering down the Thames

On 25th June, my friend Cathy and I will be rowing the length of the Thames from the navigable source at Lechlade to the Thames Barrier. 171 odd miles in nine days. We'll be joined on the row by other friends who have rashly agreed to join us for 2 or 3 days at a time. Our craft is the wonderful John Disley, a pretty still-water skiff - made for 4 oars, a cox and a passenger. You can follow our adventure on Twitter: @mascltd and on Facebook: Christine Leeson
