Welcome to my 52 Things in 52 Weeks blog.
I was inspired to start this after listening to a programme on BBC Radio 4 about a father and son team who where completing 125 Adventures around the UK to celebrate National Geographic's 125th Birthday.
My list is not intended as a bucket list and some of the 'things' will be simple pleasures.
It's purpose is to keep me motivated and get me out and about over the course of the year, try new things and do things I haven't done for a while. But who knows where it will end up. I plan to complete in a few challenges along the way.
It's about fun and inspiration and enjoying life and hopefully will inspire others too.
It's also a way to raise funds for three of the charities that have the most impact on cancer in the UK and who I've been most closely associated with and supported by over the last few months.
You don't realise the impact of a cancer diagnosis until it hits you or someone close to you. One in three of us will get cancer over the course of our lives. The more we can do to fund the research into the causes and treatments of cancer, the more people will survive.
Feel free to read, enjoy, comment and of course if you feel inspired to contribute to my fund raising - for some very worthy causes - thank you.
