For as long as I can remember, I have had a dream to cycle around the world.
I have never really given it any more thought than it being a dream, until just recently. Now that my daughters are young adults and setting out on their own life adventures, I am in a position to live that dream.
I have sold my house, and all my possessions are going into storage. I will of course look at getting another house on my return, but for now, I am doing everything possible in the hope of setting out later this summer.
The journey could take me many years to complete, and because of the enormity of this adventure, I felt it would be great to support a truly great charity.
I have spent months looking at different charities and how they help others, and have decided on Jump Children's Charity, based in Warrington Cheshire England.
I love their truly original idea of creating professional photobooks and arranging events for children with life threatening illnesses, with many of these children sadly unlikely to make it to adulthood.
Being a parent myself, my heart goes out to the families and children.
I will have this link on my website and throughout my social media accounts, in the hope that I can spread the word as far as possible to help this really great cause.
Please donate anything you can, and visit their website.
Many thanks to you all.
