My story

[p]Hello my name is Dave. [/p][p]Back in April last year (Lockdown#1) my step Daughter, Becki, did a fundraiser for Paignton Zoo, rowing a marathon on my static rowing machine. In November 2020 she began working for Living Options Devon, a charity that works to support people with disabilities and Deaf people, and I must be honest in saying I hadn't heard of them up until that point. My father was almost blind and would have benefitted from the work and services that Living Options offer. After hearing Becki speak of the work the Charity does, it really made me want to do something to help in the current crisis. This charity makes such a difference to people’s lives, people just like my dad. [/p][p]Also, I think a subject that is unfortunately big on everyone's radar at the moment is Suicide and Depression, LOD has some incredible resources to help people with this as well which I think we can all agree is needed at the moment, so let's make sure their work continues! [/p][p][b]Now we are in Lockdown#3 I have decided to set myself the massive challenge of rowing a half marathon every single day in February... 28 days straight! This should roughly take around 2 hours each day. I am not a novice to rowing but I most certainly have never taken on a challenge like this before so will need all the support I can get! [/b][/p][p]Much like everyone COVID-19 is the reason for many who are struggling and I want to ensure that an organization like this can continue to offer the incredible services they do. Any donation will help. You will be helping vulnerable people in need. [/p][p]Thank you so much for your support. [/p][p]Dave. [/p]
