All the costs of the 60at60 year are being covered by me . If you feel inspired to get more active by what I'm doing then that will be fantastic.
If you feel inspired and want to make a donation, this page should make it easy to donate to the charities I'm supporting through the year. If you just want to feel good about giving then of course go ahead with your own favourite charity.
The charities I'm supporting are: The Conservation Volunteerswww.tcv.org.uk/ The four TCV outcomes are:
Communities - Communities are stronger, working together to improve the places where people live and tackle the issues that matter to them
Environment - Green spaces are created, protected and improved, for nature and for people
Health & Wellbeing - People improve their physical and mental health and wellbeing, by being outdoors, active and connected with others
Learning & Skills - People improve their confidence, skills and prospects, through learning inspired by the outdoors
Living Streetswww.livingstreets.org.uk/ We want to create a walking nation, free from congested roads and pollution, reducing the risk of preventable illness and social isolation and making walking the natural choice. We believe that a walking nation means progress for everyone. Our ambition is to get people of all generations to enjoy the benefits that this simple act brings and to ensure all our streets are fit for walking.
Keep Britain Tidywww.keepbritaintidy.org/ Keep Britain Tidy is an independent charity with three goals – to eliminate litter, end waste and improve places. This means more to us than just picking up litter. It means creating clean beaches, parks and streets. It means creating sustainable practices and eliminating unnecessary waste. It’s about working with people, businesses, organisations and public bodies to care for the environment on our doorstep. We fight for people’s right to live and work in places they can be proud of and prosper in.
The Glacier Trusttheglaciertrust.org/ The problems we are trying to address are widespread across much of the upland areas of Nepal. The Himalayas present extraordinary diversity in terms of its landscape and people which can vary considerably over short distances. In Nepal, the remarkable communities in which we work are usually subsistence based (meaning that throughout the year they only have the capacity to grow enough food for themselves) and are now being subjected to some of the most rapid environmental change on the planet. The Glacier Trust was founded with the help of Southampton University in 2008 to mitigate the impacts of climate change on these upland communities of Nepal. The Glacier Trust does not ‘do’ aid. Instead we work at the community level to explain how climate change is affecting people’s lives (often it is seen as divine retribution) and how to use their existing resources to better effect, so a communities' resilience and security can be strengthened in this dynamic environment.

psds http://www.psds.info/ For the Grim Challenge, one of the 60at60, I'll be accompanied by the Brothers Grim Matt and Michael who are fundraising for psds. psds provides support for children with down syndrome and their families. They provide a network of support, friendship, advice and expertise. This benefits not only children with down syndrome, but also their siblings, parents and all family members. Down syndrome is part of who our children are not what they are. If you would like to sponsor them, their justgiving page is www.justgiving.com/fundraising/matt-edwards18
