Jim completes Marathon Des Sables!

Jim completes Marathon Des Sables for the 5th time!

2 years ago I managed to raise nearly £5000 for the Pilgrims Hospice before competing in the Marathon des Sables. This is known as the toughest foot race on earth and entails a 150 mile marathon across the Sahara desert. Unfortunately I didn’t complete the race due to collapsing in the dunes and being evacuated by helicopter. This year I needed to address the failure and try again to at least justify the generosity of those who supported me 2 years ago. I am pleased to report that I have just successfully completed the marathon and I can once again hold my head high. I thought during the race it might be an idea to try and raise a little more for such a good cause and while I don’t expect more support from those that have already contributed maybe others might.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

New Dolphin sculpture at Cullins Yard

Dolphin sculpture by Andy Baldwin of Sandwich. See a 22 foot long kinetic sculpture of a life sizes dolphin riding a penny farthing bicycle along a tight rope. This piece is prefabricated out of mild and stainless steel.

This whimsical piece was inspired by hallucinations due to exposure and lack of sleep during a period when andy was trying to sail to the eastern seaboard of canada. it was during this period a school of dolphins swam alongside his boat for a long period of time. It was as if they were trying to protect him.

This piece is for sale £11000
