My story

[p]For the last 14 weeks and for three more I have been walking round and delivery free school meals for the children of our school (Western Primary School) ensuring they got their meal; checked they and their family were ok; kept a check on our most vulnerable children and families; supported the families to follow the lockdown rules; deliver homework and support with teaching at their gate; and to keep the connection between school and home solid proving that the school motto 'The school that cares' is true to it's word. Showing that we care for them in school and out of school; even during the most challenging of times. By the time I finish delivering the meals I would have walked over 550 miles; delivered more than 7000 meals and carried over 4 tonne-but have loved every minute of it.[/p][p]I will deliver my last meals on 16th July and then, thanks to the amazing efforts of Marcus Rashford, they will go onto vouchers to support our most vulnerable children and families through the Summer Holidays. This is something that I am passionate about and hope continues through future Summer Holidays and that is why I am raising money for two amazing charities. [/p][p]One national and this is [b]https://www.mealsandmore.org.uk Meals & More[/b] aims to provide support to children who live with poverty and social isolation and have limited access to adequate food provision and activity throughout school holiday periods.[/p][p]Simple - we want to reduce and eradicate ‘Holiday Hunger’ by supporting holiday provision in communities across the UK. A third of children in the UK currently live in poverty and while they may have access to free school meals during term time, they are not guaranteed a nutritious evening meal during term-time or during school holidays. Meals & More also aims to provide children attending its funded clubs the opportunity to take part in enriching educational activities, in a safe and family-friendly environment.[/p][p]One local which is [b]FLAG http://www.flaggrimsby.co.uk[/b] They support SEND children and their aim is to enrich their lives by providing recreational activities, developing social and independence skills and empowering them to play a rightful place in the community and to provide them with a safe and supported environment where they can meet and play with their friends and develop recreational and independence skills.[/p][p]Now to the challenge and a challenge it is. One that as far as I know has never been done before. I am going to cycle, unsupported and on my own and camping most nights, with a trailer from Cleethorpes (Ross Castle) around the Capital City Castles of the British Isles. I will cycle to Edinburgh Castle - Belfast Castle - Dublin Castle - Cardiff Castle - The Tower of London and then finally back to Ross Castle in Cleethorpes. This will be around 1500 miles in total and I am hoping to complete it within 3 weeks. I am hoping to leave Cleethopres on the 25th July and head up to Edinburgh. This will undoubtedly be extremely difficult but I know I have dogged resilience that wont let me fail the most vulnerable in our country. [/p][p]I will do a daily log of all what happens on way round so you will be able to keep in touch and spread the word. The more money raised, the more children that will be supported in times when they need it most.[/p][p]Thank you very much. [/p]
