Story

Imagine your life changing overnight.  Suddenly, the world you knew is not accessible.  You must start from scratch, all over again.

This is happening right now.  Every day, seven people leave the Armed Forces with life changing injuries.  Many of them struggle, meaning they and their families need specialist help to aid recovery from wounds both visible and hidden.  

This June I will be attempting to cycle the length of the country from Lands End to John O'Groats with a few other old men.  Google maps reckons this takes 85 hours but we will aim to complete it in 9 days.  That still works out at over 100 miles cycling every day and as we are going from South to North it is going to be all uphill.  If the ride doesn't finish me then the company probably will.

Your donation allows Help for Heroes to continue providing vital support, now and in the future.  Thank you for supporting me, Help for Heroes and all those who need them.
