Over 70 years old, The Willys Jeep is a long way from the vehicles we are use today, for a start it doesn’t have a heating system, so no need to have windows or doors…
The J.E.E.P is well known to have Just Enough Essential Parts, so how far can that take me?
There a many future challenges this Jeep is going to be used for but the first part of the challenge is to rebuild it!
I am calling anyone who has been effected by cancer to come alone to the workshop and be part of the rebuild and be a part of the Jeep’s Challenge, there’s plenty of tea and if the weather is nice we can put a BBQ on.
(I used the boat as my goal to get through my treatment, building it up bit by bit I found to be a fantastic escape from reality and a great goal to focus on)
It’s time to thank the NHS and it’s fabulous staff for I have always said ‘they are the real heroes‘ Throughout my treatment and all the follow up appointments I had since my treatment the system has not once let me down.
In my challenges, I often choose to rebuild old vehicles – giving them a new lease of life – to inspire others to achieve their own goals. In many ways, I feel this renovation is comparable to what the NHS has done for me and many others – when a machine has fault I diagnose the cause, then I go to the stores to locate a new part and getting the machine up and running again. The doctors diagnosed me and went to the Anthony Nolan Trust to find my donor, when I was fitted with my new immune system I was back up and running.
Over the years the NHS has been taking a lot of fire from the media and the public – I think it’s time everyone who works in our great hospitals get a great big thank you!

I am asking for support from companies to help me complete this Jeep and the challenge through sponsorship, I have all ready absorbed all my available funds into buying the Jeep and getting it ready for this massive challenge is going to be impossible without help.
