I live in Buckinghamshire with my wife, Lizzie & 5 children. I’ve been a police officer for as long as I can remember and next year contemplating new life challenges outside the force. I enjoy outdoor stuff and like cycling with mates when the sun is out and the wind is in the right direction! I’m involved in Worship at our local church in Aylesbury.

The Kilimanjaro challenge has been on my ‘bucket list’ for a number of years. Last year I took part in a Men’s extreme Character Challenge weekend in Wales through an organisation called 4M. (Look up XCC Challenge). It was an amazing 3 days of brotherhood and faith building within the backdrop of stunning scenery. When 4M teamed up with Compassion UK for this challenge, it was too good an opportunity to pass up and with my amazing wife’s blessing, I’m signed up.
