Low Carbon UK : Go for engineering challenge

Fundraiser: Hugh PorterMy page:

Hi, thanks for visiting my page - I have created a blog at
My plan is to cycle from Orkney to Kent raising money for two charities
  • The Outward Bound Trust which is dedicated to unlocking potential in young disadvantaged people and
  • Help for Heroes - this is about me doing my little bit to show support for these extraordinarily brave and mainly young people.
I intend to look at selected engineering feats (mainly civil engineering) along the route and consider the implications of the big changes I (and perhaps we all) need to make to move to a low carbon economy. I will take David JC MacKay's book Sustainable Energy - without the hot air with me as a reference guide.

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
