In July I am doing a scooter ride the length of Britain, from Land's End to John O'Groats.
I am doing this for a charity called Shelter - they help the homeless - http://www.shelter.org.uk/ if you want to know more.
So I'm posting messages on my Facebook, Twitter and on the forums I frequent in order to try and raise money for this worthy cause.
I have a JustGiving page (www.justgiving.com/Matt-Scooter), so if anyone feels like donating any amount of money I, and Shelter and the people they help, would greatly appreciate it.
Even if you yourselves don't feel like donating please at least bear the charity in mind, and maybe tell friends and family.
Homelessness in 21st century Britain is simply unacceptable, and any steps that can be taken to help solve this problem (no matter how small those steps might be) is something that should be done with vigour.

Thank you for taking the time to read this :)

Hiya, only just seen the reply.
Well, we'd originally planned to cycle it, me and my brother, but now it's turned into a whole family thing. So now we're using little motorised scooters, as my mum, sister and other brother didn't want to cycle. I know that seems to be cheating somewhat, but we couldn't really say no to other people joining.

Anyway, we do plan on doing it again next year, cycling. But for now, it's scooters.
