My Story


Thank you for visiting, here you’ll discover our journey from Bude to Plymouth, following 300 miles of the beautiful Cornish coastline as I raise funds for Diversity Role Models.

I have hiked all around the world on my travels and having grown up in Wales, I am used to the outdoors and the wet weather. 10 years ago I moved to London to study Biomedical Science at King’s College London, moving onto my world travels where I volunteered, learn’t Spanish and French, and enjoyed all that life has to offer. Now back in London I play rugby for the South London Stag's Rugby club. I work in property development which allows me to have the flexibility to do crazy things like this!

Tegwen is now 3 years old and although born in London she’s Welsh at heart. Her name meaning ‘cute’ and ‘blessed’ depicts exactly who she is! She’s very affectionate, sociable and likes chasing squirrels. ​


I hope you enjoy following us on our travels around Cornwall. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, suggestions, would like to sponsor us or help feed/host us along our walk!


Have a great day,

Tom and Tegwen

Walk of Wales

In 2018 we walked 600 miles from Swansea to Llandudno along the Wales Coastal Path, so we're no stranger to long walks! It took us 5 weeks and pushed me to my absolute limits.

This was in aid of my Nana, who has had Parkinson's Disease for over 30 years. We raised over £5000 for ParkinsonsUK and it was a life long dream complete!

You can find out about the walk on our blog :)
