On 18 October 2018, a team of ShelterBox staff cheered Colin across the line in Land’s End at the end of his fundraising JOGLE.

Colin had set himself the challenge of walking from John O’ Groats all the way to Land’s End with a ShelterBox strapped to his back.

He had set off in June 2018, and his journey lasted 78 days in total covering an overall distance of 1,130 miles on foot, via the three peaks. From extreme heat to shivering cold and pouring rain – Colin went through it all.
