My story

[p]Thank you so much for checking out my page. [/p][p]For those that don't know me, my name is Paul and I am immensely proud to be attempting this challenge to raise awareness for the amazing NHS charities together and Blesma - The Limbless Veterans charities. I plan to cycle (indoors) for 48 hours, breaking down in to 2 hours on / 2 hours off for the duration, being an amputee there are some complexities that I will have to overcome, blisters, rubbing and general breakdown of my residual limb, but the hardest part of the challenge will be the lack of sleep, something that I feel many of our NHS workers have experienced during COVID-19 and something that our men and women in the armed forces experience when on operations. [/p][p]I have been personally involved with the NHS and Blesma for many years, during my time in the British Army I was deployed to Afghanistan where in 2009 I was involved in an explosion resulting in the loss of my right leg, Blesma were one of the first organisations to provide support to me and my family and 11 years on I am fortunate to work for them. [/p][p]The NHS is something close to all our hearts and during these unprecedented times we have all come to love our NHS heroes that little bit more. I have been inspired and motivated by some truly remarkable people including Sir Tom Moore and Tony Hudgell who have captured our whole nation and beyond. [/p][p]Thank you once again for reading and supporting, see you at the finish line. [/p][p]Paul x[/p][p][br][/p]
