SOUTH WEST COASTAL PATH COMPLETED!!!!
MINEHEAD TO POOLE: 630 MILES in 6 WEEKS
This was certainly an adventure for Jack; falling off his bike on the real coast path, and “travelling” through some beautiful places on the way. Places which he'd like to visit again to see properly, especially Cornwall. Jack's favourite part of the “journey” was definitely Dorset, an area he knows well. Jack is thrilled by the generosity of the donations he received, totalling £809, and thanks everybody for their support.
If you would still like to contribute to Jack's fundraising, you can donate via his Just Giving page: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/jackedwards2022
