Michael Cullen is one of Britain’s most famous charity fundraisers and is raising funds for The SpeedoMick Foundation a foundation he set up to help give back to the community that helped him when he was in desperate need.
Michael will finish in Liverpool at the Museum of Liverpool on Friday 17th December after starting off in Stornoway in the Western Isles.
During his trek he went to Edinburgh and Glasgow before he headed across the Irish Sea to Belfast. He then toured Ireland ending up in Dublin before crossing back to North Wales, then headed down to Cardiff then crossed the Severn before visiting Warrington and St Helens, where he will then finish in Liverpool.
Michael Cullen aka SpeedoMick said:
“The reason I’m doing the tour is to give back to the people and the communities who have supported me in the past.
“The Covid-19 pandemic has placed a huge strain on the finances of so many worthy charities and shone a light on how difficult life can be for a lot of young people in this country, whether because of a lack of food, money or opportunities. So I’ll do anything I can to help.
“Homelessness, mental health and disadvantaged young people are issues very close to my own heart as I’ve been through those struggles and I know how hard it is to come out the other side.
“In my life, I’ve been in some dark, lonely, hopeless places and for me, one the most rewarding parts of my fundraising has been to help people who are facing what I have faced.”
As well as raising funds The SpeedoMick Foundation will be looking for charities and good causes to give up to £250,000 to along the way.
