It’s set to raise funds for protected cirl buntings.

‘Running South America with my Husband & other animals’ was published last August 2017 and we’re delighted to announce that it has sold out! It is currently at press and will be winging its way back into the shops in the next few weeks. (NB individual shops/ online stores do still hold copies) We’re also very excited that the new copies will include additional words of support from the late running barefoot legend Bruce Tulloh and also from the magnificent Joanna Lumley, whom we were lucky to listen to last year at the Transglobe Expedition Trust’s super...

Lovely article in Forbes by Danielle Rossingh:- David Lowrie was 30 years old and climbing up the ranks as a management consultant at accounting firm Accenture in the City of London. But increasingly weary of the lifestyle and lack of work-life balance that come with working for a large international company, Lowrie embarked on a radical career change with his partner, Katherine, an ecologist.
