Story

Yo,

First of all bless you for taking the time to check the page, i'd like to start by letting you know what EACH charity do & why they were my choice from a catalogue of great efforts to improve the world. 

"Our hospices aren’t just about end of life care; they’re often very happy and fun places, where young people can live life to their full potential. They are places where families feel safe, at home and where they can spend quality time together." This quote is from the website & from personal experience of seeing & feeling "The Treehouse" leads me to believe they achieve this target with impeccable results, the warmth and vibe of this special place has never left my heart, and seeing the smiles of the children inside is priceless. I truly believe everyone should be able to find love and peace no matter what the situation, EACH makes this a little smoother. 

Now the onto the journey, Myself along with Bradley & Babs have decided to bike from Colchester to Ibiza (with a train & ferry across sea of course.) This came about after an almost joke conversation when we were all together a little over a month ago, after a lot of discussions & it nearly not happening we've decided its happening. Leaving a measly six weeks to train for this gargantuan task I still feel confident that we will complete it with flying colours. Personally I have biked for years and this challenge immediately lit up a buzz in my stomach. I believe doing something as extreme as this with such little time to train will show the power of friendship, will & mind over matter, because there will be times where it is tough however when you're striving for greatness with a single minded focus nothing can stop you, especially when the drive of backing such an amazing charity is ingrained before hand. There is no room for doubt, so I feel none. 

I hope you can spare a little something even if its a pound it all goes to a beautiful cause, and you'd be adding fuel to our fires. 

Thank you for your time. 

Be Blessed.
