More Charity Work!

I've been rather busy recently getting things sorted for going to Australia in January (less than two months to go now!) so I've sadly not been blogging as much as I should. I've also been trying to become more involved in charity work at the moment. So far I've done a speech for Macmillan to help kickstart their World's Biggest Coffee Morning and I also went up to North Yorkshire to speak at a WW2-themed event, on behalf of a charity called Butterfly Giving, which is run by a friend of mine. Both events were great and I'm not sure how much the Macmillian event raised but I know that the WW2 event raised over £2500!

I can think of no reason not to have a helicopter.
I'd also like to do some form of charity work in Australia, even if this is just giving speeches or speaking to health professionals about the advantages of having an oncology ward specifically for teenagers and young people. If anyone happens to work at a hospital in Australia and is interested (unlikely I know) please don't hesitate to email me, or tweet me, or send me a message via carrier pigeon.

Organising my trip to Australia has given me the travelling bug, but it has also given me a fantastic idea for something to do to raise money and awareness for charity. I'm considering travelling from the UK to  Hong Kong and then back again but without using planes at all. However this seems a bit boring so I need some suggestions for challenges I can do along the way, to make it into something actually worthwhile rather than just a jolly, so this is where I'm asking for your suggestions! I'm not 100% what I'm going to do yet or which route I'm going to take but I'd love to hear your suggestions and I'd be grateful for any help anyone could give me, as I'm hoping to do this next summer.
