Jon Beardmore Galapagos Postman on Breakfast

It's not all hot tea and ice buckets this June!

Earlier today Taranaki-born Jon Beardmore was interviewed on One Breakfast about his postman adventure in memory of his dad, who passed away from motor neurone disease 18 months ago.

In what he calls “the Galapagos Postman Challenge”, Jon has taken 50 letters from an ancient post box on Isla Floreana in Ecuador's Galapagos Islands and is personally delivering them across the globe to raise awareness — and money — for people with MND.

Thank you, Jon, for your mahi to raise funds and awareness in memory of your dad 💙
