Story

As many of my freinds and family know in the last 16 month I been on a journey. 

18 months ago I very really left the house only to go to work and shopping on a Friday. Due to not being able to walk very much without being in a lot of pain.

This was not an Illness this was because I was extremely overweight and would would not except  that I was . So many people tried to help me and I would get angry with them and think what do they know I am in pain I can not excise 

Well after one shocking photo taken on new years eve I realised something had to be done..

Roll on 16months later I  am still over weight but slowly getting to to a better place. and walking and doing PT Session's 

I have not been following the weight on the scales but setting myself small targets that I have achieved each time.

But now my next target is a big one I am going to climb the o2 arena in London on may 17th this is all self funded . 

As many of you know I work with young carers in west Norfolk and would like to raise some money to take theses remarkable children and young adults on a day trip in the summer holidays. 

West Norfolk Carers is a charity that has no government  funding and relies on charitable donations. 

We support young carers as young as 6. Hard to believe I know that a child of 6 could be caring for a parent or sibling at that age but after nearly 12 years in this job I have met some remarkable young carers. 

Please help me raise a little bit of money to give these young carers 1 days break during the school holidays and let them for 1 day be a child as well as a  young carer
