Cookie is a former Captain in the Royal Marines Commandos turned adventurer and motivational speaker.

Shortly after his military career he and a friend spent 6 months cycling across the world’s largest landmass, Eurasia, raising over £37,000 for two men’s health charities in the process. Towards the end of this journey Cookie made the decision to attempt to be one of only a handful of people to walk the length of Africa, solo and unsupported. The expedition, commencing in March 2020, will see him walk over 12,000km and pass through 10 countries.
