Dear friends & fellow-athletes,
I have only just learned that our dear friends, the Moody’s have had a terrible fire last Friday 27 July 2018. While I am pleased to report that they are all physically ok and that the fire has not affected the house they call their home much, I cannot even come close to imagining how they must feel & was most upset to hear that the fire has destroyed a van, a car and most of Jon’s bikes, just at a time when he is thinking of returning to cycling and triathlon.
Learning about this, I know some of you, as friends and fellow-athletes, will want to do something to help. With that in mind, I have set up this Just Giving page to raise some money to show Helen & Jon they are not having to face this alone and to encourage Jon back in the saddle.
Despite the traumatic event, Helen, Jon & daughter Evie have decided to carry on with a 2-week holiday they had planned in and are away until Sunday 19 August 2018. As such, we have just over 2 weeks to do something really special for these lovely people before they get back from their holiday. Can you help us raise some money?
If there are other ways you can help, please get in touch with me via email@example.com.
