Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

The opportunity to do what I love most, meet new riding companions while fundraising for this worthy cause was an opportunity I did not want to miss out on!

I was thrilled when I heard I could join the
Malawi Cycle for 500 miles in September of this year, and although I consider myself fairly riding fit,  I am under no illusion that riding a total of 250miles over 6 days is not going to be easy!

This epic fundraising ride will offer an experience of Malawi from a totally different perspective, and I am really looking forward to seeing the clinics and meeting the staff in Mzuzu and Kamuzu to see first hand what amazing work 500 miles does.

Being mobile is something most of us are lucky enough to take for granted, and loosing ones mobility is especially catastrophic to individuals and families already on the breadlin. Its incredible to think that it takes 500miles, on average,  just GBP175.00 To produce and fit a basic prosthetic device and with it enable someone to regain their dignity,  independence and ability to earn and contribute again!

With your help, I would like to try and raise at least £1,750.00 and make a huge difference to at least 10 people's lives by getting them moving once more!

Thanks again!
