Donations & Sponsors

The Charities

I am raising money for two charities, the Gurkha Welfare Trust (GWT) and Soldiers Sailors Airmen Families Association (SSAFA) Forces Help.  All money raised will be split equally between the two charities.

The GWT relieves poverty and distress amongst Gurkha ex-servicemen and their dependants through a range of  financial, medical and community aid schemes.

The SSAFA Forces Help offer practical, emotional and financial support to anyone with a connection, past or present, to the Armed Forces.


If anyone would like to sponsor me, please click on my Virgin Giving Page link below.  All donations regardless of how big or small will be gratefully received.


The whole expedition was funded by myself to help maximise the money for charity.  Companies who did sponsor me equipment were Sawyer Europe (water purification device), Yellowbrick (discount off GPS tracker), Powertraveller (free solar), New Balance (sportswear), Nikon (free compact camera) and Garmin (free GPS).
