Over five years the youth worker wants to raise £200,000 to set up a children's home in Bristol - having had a difficult start in life, she wants to make sure more children grow up with a safe place to sleep.

I went on the wrong path for a big chunk of my life, and as a result suffered depression, anxiety ad feelings of low self-worth, alongside self-harm through most of my teenage years.

And a comfortable place to sleep is something she's certainly lacking now. Over the past few weeks Rosie has camped out in roadsides, car parks, and had the odd night of luxury in a garden shed. She has just a sheet of tarpaulin for cover.

And she's had many adventures and mishaps along the way.

She's due in Land's End in just over a fortnight.

But this incredible journey is only one aspect of her fundraising effort.
