Headsouth 2020

In January 2020 I completed an immense 60-mile nautical trek across the Antarctic plateau to the South Pole in order to raise vital funds to help people affected by a brain tumour for The Lewis Moody Foundation and The Brain Tumour Charity.

We raised over £300K as a team, and I personally raised £110K which will fund The Brain Tumour Charity’s Tessa-Jowell BRAIN-MATRIX, a first-of-its-kind clinical trial that will enable doctors to treat brain tumours with drugs that are more targeted than ever before.
