Team story

[p]This year to show my support and thanks to Rainbow Trust Children's Charity I thought I would do a little more. So Paul Taylor, Michael Nolan and I will be doing the brutal Ride 100 which is a timed 100 mile race around London and Surrey on 29th July.[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]However, as this is my third time taking part in this event, I thought that I would raise the bar and do the 7 Colours of the Rainbow Challenge which will involve:[lt]br /[gt][b][lt]br /[gt]February:                       No alcohol[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]March:                           Become a   [lt]br /[gt]Vegetarian [lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]April:                             No swearing (for every word I will put £1 in the box)[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]May:                              Ride to and from work everyday [lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]June:                             Ride 500 miles (for every mile I don’t ride, £1 in the box)[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]July:                              Ride 100 [lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]August:                         Enter the Nuts Challenge (7km mud run with 100 military obstacles throughout)[/b][lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]So those of you who know me will understand that the above is definitely stepping out of my comfort zone especially becoming a vegetarian!!! [lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]But it's all worth it because my beautiful son Henry was born with a rare condition called posterior urethral valves. This has left him with severe kidney and bladder damage and he is entirely fed through a tube in his stomach. He has had his bladder reconstructed using a part of his bowel and a Mitrofanoff made so he is able to catheterise several times a day. In the future he will need a kidney transplant but for now, thanks to the Evelina London Children's Hospital and support that we get from our Rainbow Trust Family Support Worker Nicki, he is very happy child.[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]Nobody expects to be in our situation, including us and as amazing as our friends, family and colleagues have been and will continue to be, there are times as a family we just need that extra bit of support. This is where Rainbow Trust have stepped in. Nicki our Family Support Worker is there whenever we need her, to help with the practical things like driving Beccy and the kids to hospital for Henry’s check-ups and treatments and entertaining Thomas during the long waits for consultants and tests. She is also a brilliant emotional support when the stresses and strains of our situation gets too much. Nicki has been on this journey with families 100's of times and because of that she understands the doctors jargon, she knows her way around the hospital and she is a dab hand with Nerf gun! It's all these things and more that Nicki does that makes things just a little bit easier for us. She can’t cure Henry’s condition, but she can and she does help us and other families in similar situations cope day to day.[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]Please sponsor us so that we can say thank you to this fantastic Charity so they can help our family and many others like us.[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]Thank you,[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]Godfrey, Beccy, Henry and Thomas [/p][p] [/p][p]May Update;[/p][p]So the three amigos has now become five!![/p][p]We have found two other mad friends to join us on ride 100, Andy Moran and Geoff Denham!![/p]
