In July 2006, Jonathan Barratt gave up his UK life of car and big TV to go and work for Voluntary Service Overseas. He leaves for Ghana on 26th Nov 2006, and will be recording a journal of his experiences at "...the change you want to see..." (LastChanceToBe.com). Yes, Jon's favourite book is Last Chance To See by Douglas Adams.
He is running a fundraiser, and has already raised £230.00 for the VSO.
Very best of luck Jon! I'll be adding a permanent link to your site very soon, and I will be following your adventures with interest.
