Team story

[p]We did it: you can read my thoughts on the experience here [url=https://pinchpointcommunications.co.uk/blog/100-miles-almost-2k-and-the-best-smile-ever/]https://pinchpointcommunications.co.uk/blog/100-miles-almost-2k-and-the-best-smile-ever/[/url][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p]On 4th August I am getting back on my bike (complete with new, miniscule saddle) and cycling 100 miles, including two hills. Am I mad? Did someone dupe me into doing it? Was I drunk when I agreed?[/p][p]No reader. I am doing it because I have the enormous honour of being godmother to two fabulous boys and one of them had his life saved by Great Ormond Street Hospital. His mum is one of my dearest and much loved friends. And I want to say thank you.[/p][p] Thank you to Rachel for being an amazingly supportive friend, colleague, fellow shoe obsessive.[/p][p]Thank you to Jon and John for being the bestest husbands we could ever ask for. And a mahoosive thanks for John for being my top trainer and supportive for the whole 100 miles.[/p][p]But mainly, as I cycle up those huge hills, where I shall be terrified of falling off my bike, not being able to unclip, making a right twit of myself; I want to say thank you to GOSH. I am doing it for Charlie and Jack and the amazing staff at GOSH who put Jack's heart back together the right way.[/p][p]So let me say right here and right now. Saddle sore? Nothing. Falling off my bike? Nowt. Cycling for more than six hours and walking like John Wayne? Bring it on. Because after 100 miles and raising a heap of money, I will get the best hug of my life, from Jack. Who is alive and well and robust and vibrant and my god son. Love you darling. See you on the other side.[/p][p]A bit from GOSH: Every day, 619 children and young people from across the UK arrive. Every day, doctors and nurses battle the most complex illnesses, and the brightest minds come together to achieve pioneering medical breakthroughs. And every day is a chance for you to make a difference. This extraordinary hospital has always depended on charitable support to give seriously ill children the best chance to fulfil their potential. A better future for seriously ill children starts here.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me, and donations will be quickly processed and passed to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity. 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.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Thank you SO much. And please do feel free to also send chamois cream, champagne, beer and vouchers for a massage.............[/p]

Si and everyone at EllisJames

Congratulations to you both! Sorry the sponsorship came in after you'd actually done the challenge - it's not indicative of doubt, just poor admin!
