David's fundraising journey

The Nicholls standing triumphantly on top of a hill.

Why are you fundraising for us?

My daughter is suffering at the moment and I want to improve the awareness of the issues young minds have to deal with today.

That's why I completed the GR 20 - Grand Route 20.

Trekking across Corsica through the mountains - one of the toughest around!
