Story

On 16th September Ailith and myself will be riding around the Peak District, probably on completely inappropriate bikes, getting a load of punctures, but having a lot of fun (at least I think I will be). I have persuaded Ailith to join me on a gravel epic ride as part of her Sunshine 10x Challenge:

Sunshine & Smiles is a charity that provides a support network in Leeds for children and young people who have Down syndrome and their families. To celebrate their 10th birthday they are aiming to raise £10000 through different fundraising challenges.

5 years ago our daughter, Hannah, was born with Down Syndrome. Since the week she was born we have received a lot of help and support from Sunshine & Smiles. Hannah now loves taking part in music groups, swimming, and even her speech and language therapy (even if sitting still during the session is a struggle). It is great to have activities that are more accessible for her and spaces where she can make friendships as she grows older.

If you are able to donate at all it is very much appreciated. Thank you!
