My story

[p]Hi[/p][p]Thanks for visiting my sponsorship page.[/p][p]I celebrated my 70th birthday in July by riding to the summit of Mont Ventoux in Provence in the south of France. This has given me a great opportunity to do something much more important. To raise funds for the work of AMECA, a medical charity in Malawi which provides much needed medical assistance to a rural population which otherwise would have no access whatsoever to such facilities. Please follow this link http://ameca.org.uk/ to read in more detail about the essential work AMECA does. It is literally a life saver.[/p][p]So, there you have it. It was a perfect way to celebrate my 70th year by doing something I love, and much more importantly, helping an organisation that really does make a difference to those who have so very little compared to us.[/p][p]All donations taken together will make a huge difference to what can be achieved in Malawi. On behalf of those who will directly benefit from your sponsorship I would like to thank you for your generosity of spirit in helping me to raise funds for AMECA.[/p][p]Please don’t forget that if you are a UK tax payer you can gift aid your sponsorship which increases its value by 25%.[/p][p]Thank you.[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
