It’s going to happen!

Sunday, 7 July 2019

Yes, we’ve done it! Hit 100% funding so it’s really going to happen.

THANK YOU for all your fantastic pledges.

The supporters list reads like a Who’s Who in my life, starting from Rob and Andy in nursery school, numerous schoolfriends and teachers at Whitgift, friends from Cambridge, police officers (from Hendon, and people I’ve worked with in the Met and in GMP), mountaineers from our expedition…

How detectives investigate

Dear Supporters

The BH weekend is drawing to a close. It’s been sunny here in the Peak District, and the honeybees have been collecting brick-red pollen from the horse chestnut tree. The blossom on the apple trees looks promising.
