The reason behind the Journey
With the very recent passing of one of the best people I have ever met, I have set myself a challenge in order to raise some vital awareness and funds for a condition he had suffered with his entire life, Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia (HSP)

Details of my fundraising and my journey leading up to the event will follow. Over the next 18 months, if you are looking to donate to a charity or cause, please consider me and HSP ( Genetic Alliance UK ).
Below is the link for my Just giving fundraising which you can donate directly through.
