Event details

9500 mile coastal walk

On 3rd August 2014 I left my home in Kent on a mission to walk round the coast of Britain and Ireland. 

That's 9500 miles of walking

I've already walked 8500 miles and raised over £50,000. 

I'm trying to raise £10 for every mile of this walk. 9500 miles. £95,000

Since I started walking I've met 1000s of RNLI lifeboat volunteers. Men and women from the south coast of England, west coast of Ireland, north coast of Scotland. 

I've met a lot of inspiring people

Together, they rescue on average 23 people every single day. They're ordinary people doing extraordinary things. 

And that's why I'm more motivated than ever to raise money for this charity- to support them. 

The RNLI doesn't receive any funding from any government. It's a charity that relies on volunteers and donations. 

I'm trying to raise £10 for every mile of this walk. 9500 miles. £95,000

Thank you to the thousands of people who have donated and supported and cheered me on over the past 3 years,
Alex ⚓
