In June, I’m taking on the 500 mile cycle challenge for Missing People to continue to raise awareness of the charity and the valuable work it does in helping all missing children and vulnerable adults and their families left behind. Obviously this issue is one which is very close to my heart….and as the eighth anniversary of our daughter Madeleine’s abduction is upon us, I’m even more driven to help prevent or lessen these devastating crimes against children and the suffering which consequently ensues.
I’m particularly keen during this ‘adventure’ to highlight the UK’s Child Rescue Alert (CRA). This system can save the lives of abducted children. The general public play a major part in the success of the CRA and can help simply by signing up to www.childrescuealert.org.uk Thank you to everyone who has signed up already….and for those who haven’t, please come on board now so that you’ll be ready to join the search to bring those missing children home.
Despite being relatively new to road-cycling (eek!), I’m really looking forward to this challenge. It’s been good making myself ‘be brave’ and get out there…..and on a positive note, the brakes are no longer on quite as fully during the downhills!
Blood, sweat and tears (with a few too many hours in the saddle) ……………but if it makes a difference - which with your support I know it will - it’ll be worth it.
THANK YOU once again for your help and support.
