Story

I am going to be attempting 100 miles on my bike on 29th July in the Prudential Ride London event. There are a few hills on the way which are gradually causing a few sleepless moments at night but I'm determined I will beat them. Your support will certainly help me achieve this.

I have chosen to ride for Seahorse Education Partnerships CIC. As one of the directors of Seahorse, we would like to be able to offer our digital mindfulness based programme, Amazing Me to as many schools as possible. Amazing Me has been developed in consultation with experts in positive psychology and child psychology and alongside primary schools who have trialed the programme. The programme is designed as a simple-to-use digital platform that uses mindfulness to develop the wellbeing of children's minds, helping them to become more resilient and compassionate, notice and use their strengths, learn how gratitude and kindness can make them happier and know when it's OK to be compassionate to themselves.

Our vision is for a healthier, happier society and we believe that this starts in schools. We are willing to do this one school at a time. But it would be amazing if we could do more than that.

So, we are asking for donations from you.

Amazing Me costs £500 per school for a one year subscription. That's as little as £1.20 per child.

I have chosen to donate the first £500 raised to funding Amazing Me for my local infant school, Writtle Infants. But I have huge ambitions and I would like to extend our offer to more schools. If you would like to add schools to my fundraising or you are a school who would like us to fund Amazing Me for you, please be in touch. I'll keep cycling if you keep donating.

Why not have a free trial before you donate!

You can contact me here: kelly@seahorsed.com

I'll keep you updated on my training and also my mission to find someone who will help me make a very bright coloured cycle jersey with Seahorses all over it! (any suggestions welcome)

Thank you so much.

    Thought I'd posted this 2 days ago but maybe I was a bit tired & didn't post properly - It’s done. I’m ruined. 9 hours of horizontal rain & winds strong enough to sweep your bike from under you. Parts of the route got closed off due to accidents and dangerous conditions. Uncontrollable shivering & a few tears later, I got to The Mall. Loved the last 20 miles. Beautiful people supporting en route cheered us up. Hardest physical challenge I’ve ever done. Thank you to everyone for supporting. It means so much, you’ve no idea. Big love. Xxx

    To all of you amazing people who have sponsored me, THANK YOU! I am delighted to say, we are nearly there - one infants school will now benefit from your generosity so sit back and feel that lovely warm glow of doing something good for others. Don't worry, I'll do the work from this point in, unless you'd like to share share share so others can bask in that glow too. This is what I'll be wearing, look out for me! Not long now - Wooohooooo!!!

    Thank you so much for your sponsors everyone. I'm so grateful. We've received our start times and they've managed to leave an hour between us, which is mildly annoying. But the good news is, I managed to get up North Hill! Hoorah! I'm up to 50 miles in one hit. We have some more big rides planned over the next 2 weeks aiming to reach 60-70 miles before the big day. I am aching, sore, tired, emotional and a bit nervous. But you've all gone and sponsored me now, so I guess I have to do this hey! Thanks again all. Here's a North Hill photo :-)
