2000 Mile Walk From Gibraltar to London
« on: 20:27:30, 28/05/19 »
Hello Community,

My name is Anthony.


I want to match Aaron Banks' 450k donation to Nigel Farage and donate everything that I raise to the Green Party.


I plan to raise this money through a crowd funded walk from Gibraltar to London around the Med coast up to Barcelona, across the southern Pyrenees and up through France. I will start in August this summer.

I have walked long distance before in high temperatures across the interior of Spain.

Are there any walking groups or hostels for walkers along the way on the Med coast that anybody can recommend?

Here's a link to my crowd fund page:
crowdfunder.co.uk/2000milewalk

Cheers!
A.

I listened to R4 the other day it was all about crowdfunding. I was particularly amused by the tale of a bloke going into a cafe and ordering a coffee, whilst he was drinking it he tried to crowdfund the money to pay for it. No idea if he got it or not. I bet there are loads of scams being tried out and when listening to the programme some of it sounded like upmarket begging.

I am looking to match Aaron Banks' 450k donation to Nigel Farage by walking the 2,000 miles to London. All proceeds from the money raised on the walk will go to the Green Party.

Good luck with the walk - and the fund raising.  :)

Any political cause of any colour surely comes below the bottom of worthy causes. Had you said MRT or RNLI I would have been sympathetic
