One man went to mow... from Bergerac to John O'Groats

Grassclippings - Phil Voice  MowerthonWhat do you get when you combine the national horticulture charity - Perennial, Etesia - the manufacturer of professional ride on mowers - and Phil Voice, founder of the highly acclaimed Landscape Juice Network?

Naturally this equation adds up to a mammoth Mowerthon!

The Mowerthon will begin in Bergerac, France ending up at the final destination John O’Groats, Scotland. Phil Voice will be driving the Etesia H124 professional mower and, not only is he travelling through two different countries but, he’ll be racking up the mileage covering an enormous distance of over 1,250 miles (2000km).

Phil’s Etesia mower will be the same machine which can purchased at any of their nationwide dealers, the only addition is a heater to cope with the unpredictable weather, and a charger so Phil can keep in contact through his blog and twitter account along the way. Phil will be stopping to mow at special locations which will be revealed over the coming months.

Read more on Landscape Juice and visit the HortiAid web site to donate what you can afford to help Phil reach his £10,000 total for Perennial that was called The Gardeners' Royal Benevolent Fund.  It really is for a great cause and Grass Clippings will be fully supporting the challenge. 

We hope the seat is sprung.  We are sure Phil could mow a few road verges enroute and earn a few £££
