500 Miles (#GoBigDave) - Fantastic charity single by Sons of the Late Colonel!

In a leafy corner of Bedfordshire Big Dave Redmond was  training hard for his Little Stroll...

Getting ready to walk from John O'Groats to Lands End for the MS
Society, Macmillan Cancer Support & Help for Heroes...

But somewhere in a grotty backstreet Dave Dangerous was having a quiet word in the shell of Charlie Ferrari..."


Starting out on 30th June 2014, Big Dave Redmond is going to walk from John O' Groats to Lands End.

He will be completely on his lonesome and as such won't have a team to support him or carry his gear. He will be carrying all his own kit the entire journey and will be sleeping in a tent every night.

The rules are simple: no cars, buses, boats, trains or planes... no donkeys or other livestock... no hitching a lift on a passing teenagers handlebars or nicking the skateboard or rollerblades off of the local kids.

Only pure leg power (together with a fair amount of blood, sweat and tears we're guessing) is going to drive him for the 1000 or so mile journey and what is more... he is aiming to achieve this in about 50 days (give or take).

Who is this mad man? Well, he isn't your average long distance trekker that's for sure! Dave is a 31 year old, 6ft, 24 stone, criminal barrister from Dunstable, near Luton. He is a full time husband and father, part time PhD student and a sometime warrior poet! By his own admission he has become a bit squidgy round the edges in recent years, but this local man is determined to do something that makes a difference this year and thus this crazy plan was hatched!

All the money raised will be divided equally between his three chosen charities: Macmillan Cancer Support, MS Society and Help for Heroes.

So go on... show him your support and donate a few quid to some incredibly worthwhile causes.
