Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

There are 4 of us doing this challenge, myself Susan Matheson, Matthew (Mashy) Young,  Sandy Mackay and Tim Hewkin  all like their cycling and raring to go. 

I lost my Dad last year very unexpectedly, He was a well known shopkeeper in Nairn, Mum and Dad owned Evvaplay toy/sports/gift shop which closed in 1983, mum moved to a smaller shop beside top Ashers called PotLuck, then dad had a few jobs in between when in  1989 he reopened his shop on the Brae called Braeside Gifts, where his biggest selling item was Myth & Magic dragons. But by many people he was known as Mr Evvaplay.

 The nurses that came up to help my Dad with the Dailysis machines were lovely they chatted to him about things he was interested in, which always perked him up. They also took an interest in his family explaining about the machine to my daughter who wants to do nursing.

When we lost him I decided I wanted to do a challenge something out of my comfort zone, to fundraise for the dailysis machines. Ive always struggled with weight and fitness, so this was always going to be a challenge. I have lost 3 stone whilst training and being hypnotised for my weight loss and motivation.

This last year has been a struggle without him in my life but feel this challenge has definately helped me too.

Dad used to cycle in his young days round South Wales and Yorkshire Dales which he loved. He love steam trains and he used to do motorcross in his anglia car.

Please if you can spare as little or as much as you can to help this cause I would be truely motivated and thankfull to you, to do this challenge as I have you all behind me and the team.
