    Story

    I, along with three other dads, will be cycling from London to Paris in 24hrs on the 15th of June. Thats approximately 260 miles, provided we don't get lost on route! I am doing this to raise the funds needed for Able Hands Together to purchase a new chicken shed. Able Hands is a farm based service that provides adults with learning difficulties the opportunity to learn farming skills via hands on activities. Their co-farmers work outdoors which is proven to strengthen emotional, mental and physical wellbeing! One of the co-farmers main tasks is to feed the chickens, muck out the sheds, and to collect, clean and grade the eggs, which are then sold in the farm shop! https://www.ablehandstogether.org.uk

      I am so happy to be able to tell you all that I completed the London to Paris ride in 21hrs! Your support and generosity has been outstanding! Able Hands Together will be able to buy their chicken shes outright and will have enough left over to investbin some Rhea birds or possibly goats! Now isn't that a good feeling?!

      Thank you all for the words of encouragement! I spent much of yesterday evening packing and repacking the kit needed for the ride. Who'd have thought deliberating over how many wet wipes to take for the team, should they need them, would require so much thought! Here is a snap of me in training trying to fuel up at a stop. Again - thank you so much! Once the Shed is purchased and up and running I'll post some pics of the co-farmers using it.

      The time is almost upon us to start out London to Paris bike ride, and I am almost there with the target £250! It actually costs around £500 for a chicken shed, but every pound counts, so thank you so much for your support! Watch the video in the link to hear what the co-farmers think of the service Able Hands Together provides!
