Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

On the 3rd and 4th of June myself and 2 team mates will be taking on Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike, Snowdon then to finish off an 18.5km lap around Lake Vyrnwy, we hope to achieve this in around 30 hours and here's why......

On the 23rd December 2014 we lost my Step Dad to a heart attack, he was working as a tree surgeon at the time and collapsed in his cherry picker, he died pretty much instantly, we never got to say goodbye. Since his death I have raised funds in his memory, I do this by carrying his heavy Stihl steel chainsaw boots on my back, that way I feel like he's walking with me, not a day goes by that I don't miss him, I feel that he's still near by, watching over. I have so far taken part in 2 x 100k treks raising £3,000 for the British Heart Foundation. I hope if he is watching over he can see how missed and loved he is and always will be. 

Also coming up to 2 years ago, we lost my Uncle Idris, he had a heart attack too, he was one of the kindest and most generous men ever, he was entirely passionate about raising money for Shropshire and Staffordshire Blood Bikes. On his final journey he was escorted not only by a huge amount of wonderful bikers from The Raven Riders, but he also had Blood Bikes surrounding him and our family, it was an incredible tribute to him. The Blood Bikes honoured him by naming one of their bikes after him. My family are so proud and touched by this and we know he would be too.

The Blood Bikes assist the NHS in their own words "by helping them in their mission of relieving sickness and protecting life and health, by the provision of wholly volunteer-supported out-of-hours transport for urgently-needed blood, drugs, human tissue, donated breast milk and any other urgent medical requirements, both between hospitals and to, or from, blood or human milk banks, together with scheduled collections from breast milk donors".

These amazing volunteers work around the clock to help get urgent items to patients fast, they give up their time to not only be a key part of the collection and delivery service, but they spend their time promoting and fundraising too. 

Please help me support this incredible cause, any donation no matter how large or small is so very much appreciated. xXx
