Team story

[p][b]10 Year Challenge [/b][/p][p]This year marks [b]10[/b] years since I lost my legs in combat.[/p][p]So this year I’d like to raise a glass to survival. To life after tragedy. To my wonderful wife and children. And to all the other service men and women who are also making the most out of everything life has to offer.[/p][p]Recognising ten years of support and moving forward is a cause for celebration.[/p][p]With the number [b]ten[/b] in mind, my plan is to raise [b]£10,000[/b] for charity and Notch up [b]10,000km[/b], taking part in as many challenges as I can - at least ten.[/p][p]It would be great if you could help![/p][p]There are loads of ways you can get involved…[/p][p]Perhaps you’re already planning to take part in your own event or challenge but you haven’t decided who to raise money for? However big or small your challenge is it would be great to have you on board. I’d like to ‘claim’ your distance so that we can reach the [b]10,000km[/b] together. Please feel free to use the fund raising page I’ve set up.[/p][p]You could also use your social media to spread the word and/or encourage your company or business to donate.[/p][p]I’ve chosen five deserving charities: Great Ormond Street Hospital, Our Wilton, Teenage Cancer Trust, BLESMA and Access Adventure. I have a special link with all these organisations and I'm only too pleased to be able to support them.[/p][p]I’d love to hear from you if you’d like to discuss the possibilities.[/p][p]In the mean time, get busy living![/p][p][b][u]BLESMA[/u][/b] - The Limbless Veterans are a charity who have really helped me get back on his feet. This community of limbless veterans has been a great source of inspiration. In addition, Generation R, which is a programme that employees BLESMA members to deliver workshops is a real game changer, for the students it works with and the veterans who deliver it. [/p][p][b][u]Our Wilton[/u][/b] - are committed to developing and sustaining positive relationships with the Wilton community in order to deliver a range of social, educational, business and training opportunities. This will create a vibrant community in which to live, work and play. At the core of this development, we will harness the skills of Our Veterans and ensure that they are very much a part of the social enterprise element which makes this project so exciting[/p][p][b][u]Great Ormond Street Hospital[/u][/b] - I’m a member of the CASEVAC Club. This organisation is a community of Armed Forces personnel who received combat injuries whilst serving in either Afghanistan or Iraq. The CASEVAC Club are raising funds for this incredible hospital. [/p][p][b][u]Teenage Cancer Trust[/u][/b] - I have worked with the charity on a number of occasions. This charity has a massive heart, they do some amazing things for their members. I’ve seen first hand their incredible work. I’ll remain inspired by the staff, volunteers and the kids who have to live with the effects of having cancer. [/p][p][b][u]Access Adventure[/u] - [/b]Are outdoor adventurers who love a challenge. They founded a non-profit organisation to provide fun adaptive programmes, hoping to improve the quality of life for people with disabilities by giving them access to sport and outdoor adventures.[/p][p]After organising several adaptive waterski camps, they realised that there's a real demand for these types of outdoor activities in the UK, so decided to try and fill the gap.[/p]

Apologies to the 9th Maidenhead Scouts for shorting changing them on the km walked during last Friday night's orientation. They actually walked 45.72 km not 7.5 km and I'm happy to pay the 'fine' they imposed. Mea culpa mea culpa ... one humbled mum :-(

Hi Simon 9th Maidenhead Scouts completed their orientation around Winter Hill last night in the dark without getting lost and clocked up 7.5 km between them to add to your goal and raised money too. Good luck in achieving the remaining 9,992.5km :-) mb

Trying again, I’m determined to give you something to reward your efforts. Good luck mate. You’re an inspirational legend, top bloke too, but obviously rather clumsy 😉
