A 2500 mile litterpick

Anyone who knows me, knows I spend much of my time in and around the sea. Whilst out there I am frequently sadenned by the amount of litter the ends up in the water and on the beaches.

In light of this I have decided to make my journey a 2500 mile litterpick. I pledge to take 3 pieces of litter out of the sea everyday of my trip. So, if you have got this far and are still deciding whether or not to help me reach my fundraising target, then consider it payment for a service. Not only will the cash go to a great charity who are part of the solution, but I will personally take about 240 pieces of litter out of our seas and off of our beaches. 2 for the price of 1.

My target is a modest £1000.00 this is seriously achievable and would give me that added motivation through some of the inevitable dark moments.
