Last year, I had a heart attack, followed by a quadruple bypass operation. I resolved to do what I could to get back on my feet and to help others to avoid a similar fate.
This September, I am walking the breadth of Nicaragua – from the Pacific Coast to the Atlantic Coast. In this way, I hope to show that heart attacks and operations do not have to mean an invalidity. On the contrary, they can be a second chance to a healthier, more fruitful life.
I also hope to raise funds for two charities close to my heart, literally and metaphorically. One is the British Heart Foundation and the other is the Peace and Hope Trust (working with some of the most impoverished people in the Americas). If you would make a donation, the details are on the attached form.
The walk will take me 140 miles from coast to coast, across the mountains on the west of Nicaragua and through the rainforest of the east. It will be much easier in the knowledge that a lot of people are giving their support.
The trek will be hot and humid, but in aid of two excellent causes – both registered charities. They are the British Heart Foundation (reg. charity no. 225971) and the Peace and Hope Trust (reg. charity no. 1058728). The beneficiaries will be the increasing numbers of our fellow British citizens who suffer from heart disease and the deprived English-speaking people of the Mosquito Coast of Nicaragua. Help me to help them – with your assistance, we can make a real difference to these first-rate organisations and the work which they do.
