My story

[lt]div id="_mcePaste" style="position: absolute; left: -10000px; top: 0px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow: hidden;"[gt]So it's time for some more fund raising people. As you are all aware my son Oscar was born 10 weeks premature on 24th September 2011. I don't need to tell you what a scary and traumatic period of my life that was. Neither do I need to tell you what a fantastic boy he has turned out to be. [lt]/div[gt] [lt]div id="_mcePaste" style="position: absolute; left: -10000px; top: 0px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow: hidden;"[gt]I am not going to bore you with a big **** story because I feel that we have been extremely lucky. The outcome could have (and quite often is) much worse. However with the help of the fantastic medical staff at Burnley NICU and the charity BLISS our super son was given the best start in life. [lt]/div[gt] [lt]div id="_mcePaste" style="position: absolute; left: -10000px; top: 0px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow: hidden;"[gt]BLISS is a charity which supports the families of babies born too small, too soon, too sick. Please take some time to read about the fantastic work that they do. BLISS is one of those charities that you don't know exist until you need them. This is why it is my aim to raise their profile during my next cycling challenge. On Sunday 2nd August 2015 I will be taking part in the Prudential ride London - Surrey 100 miles. Yes that's right 100 miles in a day. [lt]/div[gt] [lt]div id="_mcePaste" style="position: absolute; left: -10000px; top: 0px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow: hidden;"[gt]I have chosen to launch this just giving page on the third anniversary of my last charity ride along the Leeds to Liverpool Canal. Whilst riding along the canal on 22nd June 2012 a friend of my wife gave birth to a premature baby who has turned out to be an absolute beauty.  I cannot thank everyone enough for their generosity at that time but I'm going to ask for your money again.[lt]/div[gt] [lt]div id="_mcePaste" style="position: absolute; left: -10000px; top: 0px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow: hidden;"[gt]This ride is sure to give BLISS much more exposure and trust me every pound counts. Please dig deep and help me along my way. This is my way of giving a little bit back to a charity very close to my heart. [lt]/div[gt] [lt]div id="_mcePaste" style="position: absolute; left: -10000px; top: 0px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow: hidden;"[gt]Thank you in advance you beautiful people. [lt]/div[gt] [p] So it's time for some more fund raising people.
