My story

[p][i]Hi, thank you for visiting my Virgin money giving page. 28th May 2021 I be walking the North Wales Coastal Path total distance of 78 miles (125km) [/i][/p][p]Day 1[/p][p]Chester to Flint(T). 13 miles (20.5km)[/p][p]Day 2[/p][p]Flint(T) to Mostyn(L). 9 miles (14km)[/p][p]Day 3[/p][p]Mostyn(L) to Rhyl. 13 miles (20.5km)[/p][p]Day 4[/p][p]Rhyl to Llandudno. 16 miles (26km)[/p][p]Day 5[/p][p]Llandudno to Conwy. 9 miles (14km)[/p][p]Day 6[/p][p]Conwy to Bangor. 18.5 miles (29.5km)[/p][p]“Donations to my walk will be split between three charities that helped me out in my time of need– Brake, Child Bereavement UK and North Staffs Mind. [i]All will help you cope with the grief and support to rebuild your live[/i][/p][p][br][/p][p][i]In January it be 16yrs since I lost my daughter in RTC. Adele was 17 when we lost her in the accident. She was 12 weeks pregnant we had made plans to go see her in Cambridge go look for a pram I was so looking forward in seeing her go shopping. The accident happen couple weeks before I was due to go down.[/i][/p][p][i]Adele boyfriend ran across the road she followed to got stuck by a car. I received a phone from Adele mother that[/i]“[i]we lost our baby girl”. Adele had broken her brain stem the doctors asked for permission to turn off life support. [/i][/p][p][i]At that point my life just completely Imploded on it’s self and little bit of me died with her at that moment.[/i][/p][p][i]I did what to talk about my loss of Adele and bottle up all the hurt, anger and guilt. I gave up on life all I cared about was my girl wasn’t here to hold my hand or hug I basically just wanted to be with her. I lost my small landscaping business due to letting down customers and not chasing up new custom. If I managed get out of bed shaved and shower that was me having good day. My wife who was at this time god bless her was at her wits end with me. We got Bonnie my Spring Spaniel Erika told me she my responsibility to look after her. It was giving her my focus that brought me round combined help from north staffs Mind . They help me talk about my grief and diagnosed me with PTSD. [/i][/p][p]Thank you for your support in helping me reach my target.[/p][p][br][/p]
