Over the last year, my events, videos, campaigns and words have spread all over the world. Ive been contacted by people from all sides of the globe which i never thought possible. I never dreamed that my awareness campaign would get this big… But it has.
Here a few news bits and articles that have come from that.

VIDEO: Herne Bay musician Jo Mumford is on a mission; News got about about my first video and this is the article arising from that.
My Herne Bay; Our town (Herne Bay, Kent) has a section in their paper where they interview people. I got asked to be part of it and answer some questions…. Here is the article.
Epilepsy Action Magazine (Epilepsy Today); When Epilepsy Action (the charity I fundraise for) heard about my abseil they asked for a interview so they could write an article to put into their magazine ! so I can officially say I’ve been printed in a magazine was a highlight which came at the right time. As you can see I was in bed…. September when id just come out of hospital and was still recovering.
From this article the Newspaper printed the following.
Thursday Thought (Stop & Smell The Roses); I was asked if my blog entry “Stop and smell the roses” could be used as a Thursday thought which is a thing the Herne Bay Times does. Of course it was my honour !
Thursday Thought (take 2!) (Make 2014 the year of niceness); I was asked if I would write another Thursday thought. I was wondering what to write when I saw a conversation on Facebook and heard a few things which were going on which I didn’t like…. It was only the start of the year and people were arguing. So that inspired this piece of writing.
