Motorcycle Ride From Wirral UK to Cape Town South Africa , 2 January 2024
We help seriously & terminally ill children to live life to the full.


Sometimes we have to do something for ourselves while at the same time doing it to help others. Paul & I have never done anything like this before, but if we can also raise some funding for children who are seriously ill and not expected to live to be an adult, then it will push us on when the going gets tough!
