Six months ahead of my solo Atlantic row we held the official launch party at the Royal Armouries in Leeds. A huge thank you to all that helped make it possible. Special mentions to The Royal Armouries for hosting us, Macmillan Yorkshire and the amazing team there, to my generous sponsors, friends and of course to my very special Team Beale, all without which this campaign would simply not be possible.

It was great that the press turned out to support us and we were visited by both ITV Calendar and BBC Look North teams who ran lunch time and evening slots on their news programmes. I also managed to make an appearance on BBC Radio Leeds for the breakfast show. I will post the media footage in a separate post.

The event was a great success and helped get the cause and work that Macmillan do out there.

Thank you all!
