I knew with the generosity of my friends that this was possible.
I also knew the local business community of which I had played an active part would also rally around.
What I hadn’t expected was the amount of generosity that would be shown.
I also wasn’t prepared for the support I would get from people who were practically strangers. The kindness of strangers I called it and they were amazing.
People in my own village who I’d never met stepped forward to add their support, as did people from the far corners of this planet.
I was humbled and overwhelmed by the support.
£1000 was smashed on the first day.
New targets were set.
The final target was set at £15,000 and we smashed that on 12th September 2015.
At that point, I decided it was time for me to stop.
I’m sure that the total will continue to climb, but I now need to spend more quality time with my wife as I’m reaching the end of my journey.
This video is to say thank you.
Thank you from the very bottom of my heart.
You are an amazing set of people who should be extremely proud of what you have achieved.
