“Finally!! Who’d have thought this would happen and now please, please, please get voting.

I’ve made it to the final stages of Discovery Channel UK’s competition and to be honest, I didn’t realise that’s what I’d done till after tweeting them with ‪#‎MYWBpledge‬.
It’s a 4750 mile route, running from Norway to Sicily and the only thing stopping me is the funds needed, which Discovery are offering (a whopping £5000!!). There is also another of the Ordnance Survey champs on there (Brendan Rendall) who has a heart of gold and really believes in the fundraising he is doing to fund a school in Malawi. Give him a vote too if you can.

A massive thanks in advance for people’s votes, and if I’m one of the 3 I promise to make the adventure an inspiration to others, as well as raise a bucket load of money for two great causes (Stroke Association and Mountain Rescue England and Wales)

Please share the heck out of this and fingers crossed for a change to adventure plans and the most epic adventure I’m likely to ever do.

Oh, and no one has ever completed the E1 euro trail and in true Aleks fashion I’ll do it in sandals and on my own.”

You can vote for your three favourite #MYWBpledge entries. When you vote, you’ll also be in with a chance of winning an exclusive Discovery backpack. Vote at discoveryuk.com

November 2015 was the 20th anniversary of the Disability Discrimination Act; a campaigner discusses.

huffingtonpost.co.uk 4th Nov 2015

Rosemary Frazer, a disability campaigner and trainer discusses her fight and this landmark piece of legislation, but highlights there are still many issues facing disabled people in the UK.  In fact, according to new Scope research many people are unable to find, stay and progress in work as 42% of disabled people feel they have missed out on a job ‘every time’ or ‘a lot of the time’ because of their disability.

See Me, the national program to end mental health discrimination launches a new campaign.

The See Me in Work programme aims to help those who are struggling with mental health issues feel safe enough to talk about it with their employer and colleagues.  The campaign comes after a YouGov survey of Scottish workers found that almost half think people in their organisation would not speak about their mental health for fear of discrimination from colleagues.

RSR Law, Croydon, Surrey, UK supports the See Me in Work Programme and wants to remove discrimination from the workplace.
