New Forest 65 mile cycle, 25 May 2024
We support ASC individuals age 16+ to enhance all aspects of their lives


I never thought I would find an adult social group that was appropriate for me. Luckily with the help of my family, I discovered PPF and right from the start when I joined last September, I made new friends and quickly felt like I belonged. My family and I were given such a warm and friendly welcome from Jane, Shelley and all the PPF 'family' so I signed up for nearly every social event on offer, including the residential next month. I feel very fortunate to have found this organisation and would highly recommend it.

However, this amazing charity really needs help with funds and so I decided I would try and help by organising a fundraising event. I also wanted to challenge myself physically and I love cycling so I came up with the idea of a sponsored cycle.

The challenge is to cycle 65 miles in the new Forest. This will be the furthest I have ever cycled in one day. Cycling with me will be my dad, his best friend, my brother and two of my uncles.

Please support PPF if you can by donating. This will help ensure that others can benefit and develop with the help of the PPF family, just like I have.

Thank you.
