    Story

    Steve Marklew has Retinitis Pigmentosa. He is registered blind. He was a keen cyclist, but can no longer see sufficiently to cycle. We as his friends have pledged to buy him a tandem and cycle him round the country!
    We need to raise approx £1700 for a Ridgeback Panorama Tandem. Please help and support Steve.

      Thanks so much to all of you. I've been amazed by peoples generosity and how speedily folks donated. We raised the full amount and more. The extra will go to a local charity that takes folks registered blind on tandem bicycle trips. Once again thanks so much Happy New Year, Colin
