Cancer is a disease that affects a great proportion of the population of the United Kingdom . Each one of us is certain to know someone who has suffered from one form of cancer, and there are many different types. It is an ever present factor in the lives of millions of people, and a disease that brings heartbreak and anguish to the families of those, young and old, who suffer from and succumb to cancer day after day.
My aim is to climb the three mountains in under 24hrs with a team who have the same passion as i do, we want to walk up those mountains with our heads held high and be proud to walk in memory of those who have been affected by cancer.

I am a born and bred Wiltshire-ite and proud of my heritage. I grew up in Tisbury and now live in Marlborough.
I wanted to write an article on here as I’m embarking on a challenge this year which may well break me and I’d like to leave some kind of legacy!
Over the next 12 months I’m competing in a series of ultra-marathons in four extreme environments across the globe. The races I will be competing in take place in Peru, the U.S., Namibia and Sweden. In summary, they are:
24th May – 2nd June: 140 miles through the Amazon Jungle, Manu National Park, Peru.
2nd – 9th August: 136 miles over the Rocky Mountains, Colorado, United States.
15th – 23rd November: 155 miles across the Brandberg region of the Namib Desert, Namibia
14th – 20th February: 145 miles across Swedish Lapland, Sweden
Each race is ‘self-sufficient’. This means that the organisers only provide a fire, at the end of each day, and water – for the obvious reason that no-one could carry enough water to last a week. Thus, I will be carrying a 25-30L backpack which will contain everything needed to get through each adventure. Varying somewhat between each race, this will generally include:
Food – about 2,500 calories a day. Yep, that’s less than I eat even on a day off from training, let alone when running back to back marathons. This will be made up of 2 x Expedition Foods meals, a couple of flapjacks and a carb gel or two per day.
Clothes – for the jungle, mountain and desert it’ll be a technical t-shirt and, depending on how manly I’m feeling, either bib shorts or leggings. Probably the former. Grr. In Sweden, it’ll simply be all the clothes in my wardrobe.
Hydration systems – each competitor has to have 2.5L carrying capacity, and this will be made up of a bladder and 2 x water bottles.
Hammock – with either a sleeping bag or cotton liner. I’m a little nervous about this…only once have I ever woken myself up because I smelt so awful, and this was when I slept in a liner for a the week in the Amazon in ’09.
Medical supplies – bandages, needles, blister kits, enough Voltarol to fell a small rhino etc.
Footwear – during the race, it’ll either be trail shoes (or, in Sweden, snow shoes) along with some flip flops for mincing around at the end of each day.
Generally speaking, this will result in a pack weighing in the region of 10 – 12kg.
Although I’m a self-confessed masochist, the predominant reason for this venture is to raise some cash for a charity close to my heart.
I’ve chosen to raise money for the WWF (http://www.wwf.org.uk/) for a few reasons. First and foremost, I predict that my overriding memory from this year (apart from sore feet) will be the wonderful environments through which I’ll pass, the local people I’ll meet, the wildlife I’ll encounter, and the beauty of my natural surroundings.
It only seems right that as I am privileged enough to visit these places, I return the favour by contributing whatever I can towards their protection and future existence.
WWF is one of the world’s leading conservation bodies protecting wildlife, people and the natural environment from largely human-induced threats. Regardless of whether you’re passionate about polar bears losing their habitat in the Arctic; poverty in war torn states; rampant deforestation in the Amazon; the demise of African elephant populations or the worldwide effects of humans’ relentless consumption of natural resources, the work which WWF undertakes covers such a broad spectrum that I challenge anyone to not feel passionate about something they support.
By donating to WWF, you can be assured that your money is going towards a very worthy cause.

Can you help our hospital?
Salisbury District Hospital is one of the country’s leading trusts when it comes to recycling, diverting 40% of its black-bag waste from landfill and also shipping unwanted office and medical items to hospitals in Africa.
Faced with a (Labour) government cut-back in its budget by £10M a year for 3 years the hospital needs all the help it can get. Volunteers have offered to man the recycling in order to take pressure off the Portering staff. The Recycle Team not only processes items for sale to the recycling industry but selects items for reuse and repair, further helping the wards’ shrinking budgets.
The Team advertises its work internally using a newsletter and is currently exploring more imaginative ways of communicating via the hospital’s intranet. Using volunteers makes recycling really pay for itself, even if team members are only able to give up the odd hour a week.
Mark Brandon, the lead recycling volunteer, says “this work can be fascinating and you do feel that you are making a real difference, not just to the hospital but the community – and I suppose the planet.”
If you want to join a group of committed, like-minded enthusiasts – and help your local hospital – contact Mark on 01722 328259 or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, contact Jo Jarvis, Volunteer Manager, at the hospital on 01722 336262 ext. 4026.
