What made you sign up for the Nivea 5×5 Challenge?

I signed up originally to fulfil a personal challenge; always wanted to kayak round Malta. As I became more familiar with the activities of the Foundation the personal challenge has taken a secondary role; helping needy kids now feels even more gratifying.

Have you ever attempted such a distance before?

Tried a couple of times before but never managed; I am training seriously and hopefully I will manage as part of a team.

What are your thoughts as you look forward to the challenge ahead?

Oh my God! Too many of them! Getting sea sick is foremost among them; funny but true. Maybe I should have gone for the walk instead…
