My Message

Having worked at The Soldiers' Charity for four and a quarter years, I had the pleasure of volunteering at three of the four Yomps that took place over my time there. As such, I am all too aware of the challenge that lies before me...

The somewhat rogue decision to take part in the Yomp was made while on the train back to London after having worked on the 2018 event, (mis)guided by the delirium of having been awake for the best part of 48 hours and aided by the consumption of 'a few' train beers. The rare appearance of the sun had also given the event an uncharacteristically appealing glow, so I was sold...!

Now, for those of you that know me, you will be all too aware that 'endurance' and 'long-distance' are words that make me come out in a cold sweat. I'm built more for speed than for slogging it out and the longest I have ever run at one time is probably about 9km. Therefore, walking the more-than-a-double-marathon distance across rugged Highland terrain, taking anywhere between 16-24 hours is, quite clearly, my idea of hell. Expect mud, sweat, and a high chance of tears too.

It will undoubtedly be one of the toughest physical challenges I have ever attempted, but, with your help, it will raise a few quid for The Soldiers’ Charity and go towards its sterling work (which I have had the honour of witnessing first-hand), providing a lifetime of support to soldiers, veterans and their families in times of need.

So, there you have it. Any loose change / hard cash / generous sums you can spare, it will all be greatly appreciated in helping me to reach my target.

Thank you in advance for your support! 

Tom / TCB / Cuffy
