Story

Thanks for visiting our team's fundraising page. My son, Archie Pearson (he's the one with the cheeky laugh!) suffers from a currently incurable illness - MPS6. It's an genetic illness that causes progressive degradation of core bodily functions. However, with the support of the MPS society, Archie recieves weekly Enzyme Replacement Therapy (ERT) which helps slow down the disease. I've joined forces with two great friends - Andrew Jack and Adrian Smith to cycle from Lands End to John O'Groats over 9 days to raise money for both MPS Charity and Make a Wish. My preference is that the majority of the money raised goes through to the MPS Charity, but I'd be equally delighted if you wish to make a donation to Make A Wish - a charity dedicated to making the lives of poorly children much more bearable.

Remember: Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never share them with anyone or send you unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. They'll make sure Gift Aid (an additional 25%) is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer, too. That means more money goes to the charity, faster, with JustGiving.
