As a furniture designer in Hampshire for the past 8 years, the provenance of the timber used in Charles Dedman’s work has always been a point of interest and importance.

That’s why Charles is excited to be fundraising for Woodland Heritage, an organisation that promotes sustainable forestry in the UK through education and research. Their work ensures that woodlands are enjoyed and used by woodworkers and nature lovers for generations to come.

This personal trek will test his mental and physical ability to the max, traversing 630 miles of coastline from Minehead in Somerset to Poole in Dorset. Along the way, he will be taking in some of the most beautiful beaches, paths, and woodlands and sharing it with Shine Radio listeners.

Charles is speaking to Shine Radio’s Suzie Wilde.
