#Mowerthon reaches Carlisle

Grassclippings - Carlisle #MowerthonImagine driving a lawn mower from Bergerac in France to John O'Groats?  This is exactly what ex Greenkeeper Philip Voice of The Landscape Juice Network is currently doing, having left his home in Bergerac on Monday 01 October.  Phil and his trusty lawn mower have just reached Carlisle 11 days later.

Phil is making the 1,250 mile journey in support of Perennial, via HortAid.  Perenial is the national charity for people who work in or have worked in or retired from horticulture, providing advice, help and support in times of need or difficulties. 

After the high volume of rain we have all had this year, land based industries and businesses have had a really tough time, including farmers who are advising that harvest yields are down some 25% resulting in the rise in the price of a loaf of bread and vegetables that will impact us all. 

That's basic foodstuff costing so much more this autumn and winter because it has been so wet and to think we had drought restrictions at the start of the year!

To date, Phil and his Estesia lawn mower have raised £4,662.50 and you can make a donation on Phil's Just Giving page.  11 days in a lawn mower for around 10 hours a day at 10mph - now that's really worth a donation!
