My story

[p]At the beginning of July I will be returning to India to once again ride a trusty Royal Enfield Bullet but this time I will heading for the high passes of the Himalaya's. I will ride the mythical Manali to Leh Highway before heading further North to tackle Khardung La, the “Highest motorable road in the World” [/p][p]I will be raising money for 2 charities that make a huge difference to the quality of life for people with Down's syndrome.[/p][p]The Down's Syndrome Association (DSA) is the only charity in the UK dealing with all aspects of Down's syndrome. It's aim is to help people with Down's syndrome live full and rewarding lives. 2 of the many great schemes that DSA are involved with are the [b]DSActive[/b] programme to encourage children & young adults with Down's syndrome an opportunity to get involved in sports and the [b]dsworkfit[/b] programme to bridge the gap between employers and employees with Down's syndrome.[/p][p]The Cotswold Down's Syndrome Group provide support to individuals and families whose lives are touched by downs syndrome. In addition to giving support and advice to families with new babies and young children on a one to one basis we have a number of fun family regular meets and events. They are based in the Gloucestershire and Cotswold area and have been a huge support to our family since Alfie was born in 2013. In the last 12 months the money that you've helped me raise has helped Alfie and his peers with speech therapy from a renowned specialist, in 2019 the group are supporting families on an activity week at the Calvert Trust outdoor centre for people with additional needs. [/p][p] Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
