Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I am taking part in a bike ride across West Sussex in April 2019. We will be stopping at each of the 25 fire stations with the goal of raising funds for Sapper Support and the Firefighters Charity.
I'm an ex Guardsman, so military connection is obvious, I'm now an operating theatre nurse.
There are 2 main reason for doing this event. 1 - it is the next step in my rehab, a year ago I suffered bilateral pulmonary embolisms (blood clots on my lungs), which meant I spent 4 months off work. At the time I could manage to walk 100metres without needing to sleep for a few hours. 2 - as a group in Newick we are forming a new organization (possible name of NEASSA) this group is to offer support in all forms for emergency and armed forces personnel and their families in and around Newick. In my mind support can be financial, time and effect.
Plus I want to now that I can.
