This is exactly what ex Greenkeeper, Phil Voice is currently doing right NOW. Phil has taken on this 'Mowerthon' to raise money for Perennial - the national trade charity which provides free, confidential advice and support to everyone working in, or retired from working in, horticulture, and their families, including gardeners, landscapers, nursery and garden centre staff, parks and grounds care staff and tree surgeons. Currently, Phil is currently on his way to Caen "I'm always thinking of ways to help, and sitting at my desk one day I thought about walking from Lands' End to John O'Groats to raise money for charity, but this had already been done," commented Phil. "I then had a brainwave. Why not do it on a mower? Better still, why not do it from my home in France? After an email to Les Malin at Etesia which he forwarded to Patrick Vives, Etesia's President, they offered a machine with their full support.
