Tonight I'm heading up to the lake district in Cumbria, to talk to farmer and author, Andrea Meanwell. 

In one of the most enjoyable interviews I've done so far, we talk about her family's 500 year connection to the area, archaeology, lazer beams, Roman forts, fulfilling her dream of owning a farm of her own, and her new role as lake district farming officer.

All this, and much more.

Tonight I head all the way down to New Zealand to talk to Sophie Barnes, to hear all about her incredible journey from middle English town life, to sheep farming all over New Zealand. 

We also discuss her ongoing battle with endometriosis, anxiety & depression, and how she deals with it on a daily basis. 

I don't use the word inspiration lightly, but I think it's justified in this case. What a girl.

Tonight for this Farm Africa London Marathon Special, I talk to Libby Plumb, Adam Bedford, and Ava Emami, all about Farm Africa, and the amazing work they're doing to help Women coffee farmers in Uganda build a better and brighter future for themselves and their families through Agriculture. 

 

 

 

 

LONDON MARATHON 2019: As required by Universal law, if you're doing a marathon you have to tell people about it. Well I'm doing the London one in April 2019, and I'm raising money for the incredible charity FARM AFRICA.

Between 8 February and 8 May donations in support of my London Marathon challenge will go to Farm Africa’s Coffee is Life appeal. Give before 8 May 2019 and all public donations to Farm Africa’s Coffee is Life appeal will be doubled by the UK government.  Your donation will support Farm Africa projects across eastern Africa, and the matched funding you unlock from the UK government will directly fund a Farm Africa project that will give women in Kanungu in western Uganda the opportunity to make a decent living from coffee farming.

If you want to see more about the AMAZING work they do please visit www.farmafrica.org & if you'd like to sponsor me the link is www.justgiving.com/fundraising/william-evans12 and from now until 8th May, the UK Government will match your donation - thank you!
