"It's like in the great stories Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were, and sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy…"

                                                                                                  Sam Gamgee 

There is still hope! We are in the midst of a eucatastrophe! And together we can save Europe! Please give generously to this cause and help Frodo get to Mordor! The money raised will pay for film and audio equipment to help me document Frodo's journey. I will also buy Frodo shirts, a new pair of hobbit feet, battery packs, memory cards, plastic carrots, camping gear and a spare wig. 

On return to England, the material gathered throughout this trip will be developed into a performance piece that will be toured across the UK. All contributors will be invited to see this epic retelling of their favourite book/movie trilogy. 

Much peace and hobbit love x 

Risks and challenges

There are various risks and challenges that I will inevitably encounter whilst travelling through Middle Earth. I may meet Orcs, Goblins, Trolls - Black Riders and customs officers who aren't amused by fancy dress. As a Hobbit, I am relatively ill equipped to deal with any of these formidable obstacles but trust in good luck and kind hearts to guide me safely on my way.
