Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I've just got home from the most amazing weekend, cycling in aid of the Middle Eastern Children's Alliance.

Successive Israeli military assaults have killed thousands and left the entire population traumatized. The UN estimates 300,000 children in Gaza show signs of severe psychological distress including bed-wetting, nightmares, aggression, and difficulty eating, sleeping or speaking.

Right here in Birmingham, we have a factory making engines for military drones that fire missiles into civilian areas in Gaza. 200 of us cycled to the factory from Manchester (and Sheffield, London and Bristol) to raise awareness of the UK allows this to happen. We also remember the 547 children killed in Gaza in the 51 days of attacks on Gaza in 2014. ‪#‎bigridepalestine‬
