My story

[p]Hello and thank you for visiting my page.[/p][lt]p style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; font-size: 11px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000;"[gt][b]About Kith and Kids[/b][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; font-size: 11px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000;"[gt]I’m raising money for Kith and Kids, a charitable organisation that empowers and supports young people with a learning disability or autism, and their families. They run regular projects, clubs and services providing their members with the opportunity to develop their social skills, take part in new experiences, and above all have fun in a safe, welcoming environment. [/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; font-size: 11px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000; min-height: 13px;"[gt][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; font-size: 11px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000;"[gt]I’ve been volunteering with Kith and Kids for over a year and a half now, taking part in many of their activities including workshops, outings, and projects. I’ve met some of the most caring and creative people in the short time i’ve been involved. [span=font-family: Helvetica; font-size: 11px; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000;]There is a real feeling of positivity and community at Kith and Kids and our activities always put our members first.[/span][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; font-size: 11px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000; min-height: 13px;"[gt][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; font-size: 11px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000;"[gt]I wrote a [url=http://straydogstrut.co.uk/2015/11/24/kith-kids/][span=color: #551a8b;]blog post[/span][/url] about our activities and you can also find out more about this wonderful charity on their [url=http://www.kithandkids.org.uk/what-we-do/][span=color: #551a8b;]website[/span][/url].[/p][lt]p style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; font-size: 11px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000;"[gt][/p][lt]p style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; font-size: 11px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000;"[gt][/p][lt]p style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; font-size: 11px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000;"[gt][b]The Challenge[/b][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; font-size: 11px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000;"[gt]This is my second Ultra Challenge of 2016. In May I successfully completed the London2Brighton challenge in a time of 30hrs 49mins and 03secs raised £525 - Thank you![/p][lt]p style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; font-size: 11px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000;"[gt][span=-webkit-text-stroke-width: initial;] [/span][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; font-size: 11px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000;"[gt]For my second challenge i'm doing the [url=http://www.southcoastchallenge.com/the-challenge][span=color: #551a8b;]South Coast 100km Ultra Challenge[/span][/url], trekking from Eastbourne to Arundel, along the coastal path and up and over the South Downs. This route is more off road than the others and promises stunning views.[/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; font-size: 11px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000; min-height: 13px;"[gt][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; font-size: 11px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000;"[gt]There will be rest stops every 12.5km, with major rest stops around 25, 50 and 75km and a much needed hot meal at half way. There’s no time to sleep though and i’ll be aiming to beat my previous time and capture some stunning pictures.[/p][lt]p style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; font-size: 11px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000;"[gt][/p][lt]p style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; font-size: 11px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000;"[gt][/p][lt]p style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; font-size: 11px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000;"[gt][b]How You Can Help[/b][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; font-size: 11px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000;"[gt]Please do give generously as Kith and Kids rely on their supporters to continue to provide their fantastic services year in year out. As a volunteer, I know any donations raised will go a long way to making a real difference in the lives of some truly wonderful young people.[/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; font-size: 11px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000; min-height: 13px;"[gt][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; font-size: 11px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000;"[gt]Funds raised could go towards, amongst others, the opportunity for young people to attend our social development projects, workshop supplies, outings and telephony support for members' families. Every penny really does help![/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; font-size: 11px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000; min-height: 13px;"[gt][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; font-size: 11px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000;"[gt][span=font-style: italic;]Full disclosure: I have self-funded my place on both challenges so all donations received will go to Kith and Kids (minus Virgin's transaction fees)[/span][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; font-size: 11px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000; min-height: 13px;"[gt][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; font-size: 11px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000;"[gt]Remember you can also Gift Aid your donation so that Kith and Kids can claim an extra 25p against every £1 donated.[/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; font-size: 11px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000; min-height: 13px;"[gt][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; font-size: 11px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000;"[gt]Aside from donations, your time is very valuable and [b]Kith and Kids are always looking for new volunteers[/b].
