Charity & Sponsorship

The whole purpose of this slightly mad expedition is to raise a lot of money for charity. Let's make no bones about it - charities need our help! Without the great work that some companies and individuals do to raise money for much needed causes, there would be significantly more suffering than there already is in the world. That's our piece said ... please help us to help others less fortunate than ourselves!

Marie Curie Cancer Care

Marie Curie Cancer Care provides high quality nursing totally free, to give terminally ill people the choice of dying at home supported by their families. Your local Marie Curie Hospice actively promotes quality of life for people with cancer and provides support for their families. The services are completely free to patients. World class scientists at the Marie Curie Research Institute are investigating how cancer develops to find better ways of treating the disease in the future.
