NOTE: Charity Drive Starts Tomorrow

David Shannon, known far and wide in the UK SAS world (and beyond), is starting a charity drive from Land's End to John'O'Groats (LEJOG) tomorrow, i.e. from the most south westerly tip of Britain to the furthest point in the north westerly direction.

You may recall I mentioned this back in January, and also highlighted the fact that my wife had done the same trip (1,000+ miles) on a bike in ten days. David and Paul plan to do it in five days.

The drive will be fun(!) but is also in aid of Cancer Research UK. Never one to shirk a challenge, David (and his brother, Paul) will be making the journey in a 1974 MGB Roadster, avoiding motorways and A-roads.

You can follow David and Paul's adventure via their blog. If you'd like to offer them support and encouragement, you can contribute to Cancer Research UK via their JustGiving page.

Good luck chaps!
