Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
People who know me will know that I like to try to do something different to raise a little money for a good cause at least once a year, from climbing a mountain to driving across Europe in a car decorated to look like a football pitch. It is always great fun and hopefully brings in a few quid for organisations that do a great job helping other people.
This year is a relatively quick and simple one - a bigger one is in the pipeline but it is a couple of years off yet. That said this does include a daring and courageous trip across the border into deepest, darkest Yorkshire.
On Tuesday August 12th Accrington Stanley take on Leeds United at Elland Road in the Capital One Cup First Round. My plan is to cycle to this game from where I now live in Birkenhead, leaving on Monday 11th August and taking a ferry across the Mersey - someone should write a song about that - and then following the Leeds and Liverpool Canal with an overnight stop in Accrington before reaching Leeds ahead of the game.
A journey of over 150 miles.
I am raising money for three great hospices in each of the areas involved in this challenge:
Claire House Children's Hospice, Wirral
East Lancashire Hospice, Lancashire
St Gemma's Hospice, Yorkshire
Please do support these great causes with anything you can, all three are amazing charities providing such incredible services to those that need them.
