My story

[p]My name is Jeremy Smith. I am 25 years old and will be cycling through four countries in Europe in June this year, to raise money for Norwood. Here’s a link to Norwood’s Web site: [url=http://Norwood.org.uk]Norwood.org.uk[/url]. Norwood is important to me because they look after me in my home in Woodcock Dell, where I’ve been since I moved out of my mum and dad’s house in February 2011. Without Norwood, either I’d be living with my aging mum and dad, or somewhere else, like in a cardboard box under a bridge, or up a tree.[/p][p]It will probably be my dad doing most of the pedalling through Europe, while I sit in the front on my special “Duet” bike. The bike is really neat. It’s a wheelchair-bike combo that separates into two bits and clips back together again. I used to take my dad out in it when I lived with mum, him and my three sisters. We used to go through the forests in it and I remember whizzing down the hill at high speed laughing my chops off.[/p][p]The ride in Europe will take us through four countries: Croatia, Austria, Hungary and Slovenia. It’s three days of 50 miles each day, so it will be hard work. The terrain is mainly tracks and minor roads, with a bit of climbing to be done.[/p][p]Please donate. It will make a huge difference to all the people like me who Norwood care for. I will be posting pictures and updates on [url=https://www.facebook.com/groups/915633311949604]my Dad's Facebook page[/url] as we go.[/p]
