A small band of hardy travellers set out on a journey on 15th July 2011 to travel from Land's End to John O'Groats - and back again by service buses only !
Over the course of two weeks they will be using nothing but registered local bus routes. There are three reasons that they are doing the trip :
- To raise as much money as possible for Oxfam - they are aiming for at least £5000
- To raise awareness of just what is possible when using bus services
- In memory of Heather Stedall, who died in hospital in June 2009.
If you want to see how they plan to do it or follow their progress, check out their website at
If you do manage to meet up with him why not send us photos, which we will endevour to show on one of the Focus sites.
