Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page

Communication Matters aims to increase awareness, understanding and knowledge of the needs of people who struggle to communicate. Due to the pandemic they have been facing financial difficulties. 

I am a communication device user and the charity means a lot to me and others in the AAC community.

In 2020 I decided to spend the month of August raising funds and awareness for this very valuable charity. I love riding on my mobility scooter but cannot use my communication device on it, I aimed to do 500 miles during August so my ride became #500mileswithoutavoice.

I went out on my scooter every day during the month of August, I ended up doing 1020 miles and raised £2510 + £294.50 gift aid.

Communication Matters are still in need of help so I have decided to do it all again- I am aiming to cover even more miles this time and hope to raise even more funds.

I will be doing the ride during July 2021.

All my rides will be tracked on the Strava app and posted on Facebook.
