My story

[p][b]Hello All,[/b][/p][p]On the 17th May I’ll be setting off on my bike to venture around Britain. With just a tent and a few essential supplies I’ll be in search of the best breakfast in Britain. This will be in aid of two charities: the MND Association and the Brain Tumour Charity. Both these charities are very close to my heart. In September 2018 my Dad, Giles, passed away of a brain tumour and in May 2019 my Mum, Clare, passed away of Motor Neurone Disease. Both are horrific diseases and we desperately need to find new treatments. No one should have to suffer like my parents did.[/p][p][br][/p][p][b]The Charities and What They Do:[/b][/p][p]Motor Neurone Disease is a rare condition which progressively and often aggressively leads to the weakening of muscles. In my Mum’s case, the disease meant that she was unable to walk, move her arms, hold her head up unassisted, eat or drink though her mouth or even speak. The MND Association provide care and support for those living with MND. This could include providing equipment which aids mobility, communication aids (often controlled with eyes) or funding for non paid carers. As there is currently no known cure, the MND Association also funds and promotes research into new ways of treating MND.[/p][p]Brain tumours are more common than MND but also have very low survival rates. Currently only around 15 out of every 100 people with a cancerous brain tumour will survive for 10 years or more after being diagnosed. For my Dad, who had a Glioblastoma tumour, the symptoms consisted of progressive weakness on one side of the body, seizures, headaches, sickness as well as mental and behavioural changes. The Brain Tumour Charity aim, in the short term, to double survival by 2025 and, in the long term, defeat brain tumours once and for all.[/p][p][br][/p][p][b]The challenge:[/b][/p][p]With travel a little disrupted due to the pandemic and uni starting in September I’ve found myself with a couple of months free. I want to put this time to good use, therefore, with a bike at my disposal I felt one of life’s most important questions needed answering: Where can one find Britain’s best breakfast?[/p][p]On the 17th May with a bike, a tent and a couple of supplies, I’ll be venturing off in search of the best breakfast in Britain. To begin I’ll set off along the South Coast as far as Southampton, then cut up towards Bristol. After that I’ll head around the entire Welsh Coast then cross over to the Northumberland Coast. From here I'll head into Scotland, across to Glasgow, up to Inverness and begin the NC500. Once I've reached John O'Groats the plan is to cycle back to my door. I reckon I'll be home on the 12th July.[/p][p]I plan to predominantly camp but will also be staying with the odd friend COVID permitting. Every penny donated will be split 50/50 between the Brain Tumour Charity and the MND Association. I’ll be keeping you updated on route plans, my journey and (most importantly) ‘the British Breakfast League Table’ on Instagram and Facebook pages which you’ll find below.[/p][p]I’ll currently spending much of my time training, as well as working. I’ve just been on a practice trip up to Oxford which was tough but a good confidence booster and you can find out more about it on my social media pages. Of course with anything like this there is always the chance I might pick up an injury but, even if it means walking with my bike for the odd day, I want to keep moving.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Thanks for taking the time to read and if you’re able to give the page a share, it would be greatly appreciated![/p][p]All the best,[/p][p][i]Jeremy[/i][/p][p][br][/p][p]Instagram and Facebook: @TourdeFullEnglish[/p][p]Twitter: @TourdeFullEng[/p]
