Charities are a big part of my life. At a local level I like to support Christian youth work and charities which help people and families affected by disability. At an international level I like to support charities and projects which help children born into poverty or children for whom life is a struggle. There are so many good charities I find it impossible to limit my support to just one or two. I know the people who run the charities and projects I support so I know the money will be put to good use.

Over the Forth Bridge then following the Fife Coastal Path from Inverkeithing through Dalgety Bay, Aberdour, Burntisland, Kinghorn, reaching Kirkcaldy around 3pm (26.5 miles).
