For as long as I can remember, I have had a dream to cycle around the world.
Now that my daughters are young adults and setting out on their own life adventures, I am in a position to live that dream.
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 am completely self-funding the cycle, and I receive nothing at all from the charity, other than a great feeling I am helping in some way, and all the big thank you's I have received thus far from the JUMP team and supporters.
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.
It is a small charity with very limited resources. I looked for a charity that wasn't getting the funding it deserved, like some of the larger charities. I wanted a charity that helped children and the children's families, and was delighted when I found JUMP Children's Charity.
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, to this truly great little charity.
Many thanks to you all.
