Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

On Sat 24th August, I will attempt to cycle the length of the UK from Land’s End, Cornwall to John O’Groats, Scotland (known as LEJOG).  Riding 1000 miles in just 9 days, with an average daily climb of over 5,000 feet. 

As well as completing the ride as a personal challenge, I’m also raising money for the Kicking Off charity.   The money will go towards some of Kicking Off’s long term development projects which include the renovation of an almost derelict medical centre in Ghana which serves thousands of local villagers and building a much needed school in an area where there is currently no educational opportunities. Having visited these villages and the medical centre, I know the impact these projects will have on the local community and with your help we can make massive steps towards implementing these kinds of projects.

I would really appreciate it if you would consider sponsoring me for this event. Note that I've covered all the costs of the challenge myself, so your donation will go straight to the charity.
