Hello, so my names Jackson and I have decided to take on a Ration Challenge for 2 weeks, starting 4th January until 17th January 2021.

I decided I would like to donate towards a charity close to me and my family. The Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospital.

Back in 2014, my dad was taken ill and had 2 heart attacks and a cardiac arrest. He was taken to The Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospital where they saved his life.

I was away working abroad in Finland and with no way home until after Christmas, it was an emotional time for us all as a family.
I was lucky enough to get a flight Christmas Eve, with the help from my Grand Parents and Sister, to surprise my parents to be home for Christmas Day.

We got through it and he is still here today because of the hospital.

I have chosen to do this challenge because many people know I love my food, so I thought for 2 weeks, I will swap out my home comforts and challenge myself to eat nothing but basic rations. It will be very tough to say the least.

The ration pack I’ll be living on for 14 days contains the same rations that Im A Celeb eat:

420g rice,
170g dried lentils,
85g dried chickpeas,
400g tinned kidney beans,
330ml vegetable oil.

I’d be so incredibly grateful for any sponsorship that people are able to provide – even a pound will make a big difference.

What would you make with the ingredients that I have in my ration pack?

Wish me luck… Danny Jackson
