My story

[p]End to End Challenge 2021 - JOB DONE!!![/p][p]Well on the 23rd May 2021, I managed to complete my epic bicycle tour of a thousand miles, from John O'Groats in the far north of Scotland to the most south westerly tip of England, Land's End. I managed to complete this cycle tour over 14 days with my Dad (Andrew) following up as my Support Crew, however, I did have to take a couple of forced rest days due to gale force winds on the days when I should have been crossing Dartmoor and riding the south coast to Land's End, which I'm sure you'll forgive me for...![/p][p]Many thanks to all of you who supported me throughout this challenge with your prayers, donations and motivating messages on social media...! I cannot tell you how motivating this all was, particularly as a number of days were somewhat on the damp side...![/p][p]Special thanks to my amazing Dad for being my Support Crew and Chef for the entire challenge and also to Tom and Terry for your support during the event![/p][p]May I also take this opportunity to thank my very accommodating Wife Tanyar for letting me have nearly 3 weeks away and for also 'spreading the love' whilst I was on my travels, you are a diamond my dear! XX [/p][p]This 'End to End' Challenge was in support of two charities which are very close to my heart as my Mother Sandie sadly passed away in December 2018 having succumbed to Dementia after living with this condition for 5 long years.[/p][p][url=]Dementia UK[/url] is a fantastic charity that provides advice and practical support for families living with Dementia and as my father was pretty much my mother’s sole carer in the latter years of her life, support such as this was absolutely key to ensuring that my Dad’s health and wellbeing were both considered and adequately catered for.[/p][p]Dementia UK continue to provide support to many families living with Dementia and your donation will provide tangible support for families living with this debilitating condition in many ways.[/p][p][url=]HCPT Life Changing Pilgrimage Holidays[/url] is a charity that is especially dear to my heart as I became a helper for this charity at 16 years of age with HCPT Group 58 (Keighley) and throughout my entire RAF career (24 years) I continued to support HCPT Group 187 (RAF) as a helper until leaving the RAF in 2014.[/p][p]HCPT Group 198 (Otley) was founded by Andrew and Sandie (My dear Dad and Mum) over 25 years ago and continues to enable disadvantaged children from West Yorkshire to have a truly fantastic holiday to Lourdes in the South of France in Easter week as well as providing valuable respite care for their families also.[/p][p]Your donation in support of Dementia UK and HCPT Group 198 (Otley) is gratefully received and will provide tangible support to some remarkable individuals that rightfully deserve our support, love and kindness; Thank you![/p]
