Story

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. Please dig deep and sponsor me online.

The Ride's over now and it was an amazing experience, I met some truly inspirational people and some truly terrifying hills but together we got through it. During the 5 days on the road we visited several memorial sites & it gave me a great insight into how the wars went and the conditions that the soldiers had to endure. Having spent some time with our current servicemen I noticed how admirably they dealt with the injuries and situations that modern warfare has left them in, it was truly amzing to see how upbeat they all were. I believe now more than ever that Help for Heroes is a great charity to get behind and show your support so please join me and pledge some moeny to help these brave men & women.

Thank You's
Thanks very much to everyone who has sponsored me here at Justgiving and to Lisa Gill, Mike Taylor, Les Watkinson & Frances Lodge for their sponsorship off line, also a very big thank you to Virginia Budd, Lucy Otter & the rest of the Virgin Media community fund panel for agreeing to match my sponsorship up to £250.
