Story

Thank you for visiting my JustGiving page supporting the MND Association. My beautiful wife, Sarah, was diagnosed with MND in Summer 2022. Our World was turned upside down and our plans for an exciting retirement together were trashed. It’s a journey no one wants to make as piece by piece this appalling disease takes a loved one’s life. Years of neglect and underfunding has allowed MND take too many lives. However things are changing, please help us to make a difference and move a step closer to finding a cure. We’ve started with a Brass Band Concert and Dinner, I originally met Sarah playing with the Ruston Bucyrus Brass Band, so this felt appropriate and was a great success.

I have now taken on a challenge to cycle 250 miles over 5 days in April, riding by many of the farms I have traded with in North Lincolnshire. Two things to note. I’m no cyclist and despite popular opinion Lincolnshire is not flat. I’m hoping to spread awareness and engage with customers, colleagues and friends. The MND Association focus on improving access to care, research and campaigning for those people living with or affected by MND in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. By sponsoring me your money will help people affected by Motor Neurone Disease. Once you donate, JustGiving will send your money directly to the MND Association. Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and secure, your details are safe - they'll never sell them or send unwanted emails. Thank you again
