Nobody say mid-life crisis! As ever, a New Year rolls around and pledges of fitness pop up like a tray of Ferrero Rocher that just beg to be eaten before the in-laws visit and I can’t get the custard creams out fast enough to protect my nutty/ chocolate stash!
When it comes to such New Year’s resolutions of fitness, I have the breaking strain of a KitKat (worth looking up the RN reference for that explanation). 2020 has had a knack of highlighting how the most vulnerable in society skirt so closely to greater misery and suffering than we should reasonably tolerate.
To that end, I decided I would row 1 million metres for Centrepoint: A UK-based charity which seeks to help homeless youngsters in our major cities. I’ve experienced a few tough scrapes in my life, but nothing compared to not having a roof over my head – the mere thought scares me rigid. I’ve created a Just Giving page with the goal of raising £5,000 in 2021. While I appreciate this is a surreal time to be seeking donations, if you do have the odd £5 or £10 you could donate then I would be very grateful.
