About Paul

I consider myself the driving force behind The Hairy Hikers, although I couldn't do it without the help of everyone else involved. I started the whole thing off with the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge in 2008, as I was looking for a way of raising some money for a cancer charity. My Grandma died from cancer in 2006 and in 2007 I lost my Father in Law to it. My wife Nicola and I had previously raised some money for Marie Curie in 2006 when we had to bring our Wedding forward and had to arrange everything in 9 weeks, you can see how we got on in the 9 Week Wedding blog and in September 2007 I grew a rather feeble tache for the Tacheback - Everyman Male Cancer Campaign.
