My story

[p]Hello Everyone and thank you for visiting us here. [/p][p]My name is Andy Cole. I have recently received my bus pass and thought what I need to do is have an adventure with it. So on Saturday 10th August I am setting off, accompanied by my orange space hopper, from a point on the UK mainland, according to the Ordnance Survey, is furthest from the sea. This happens to be on a farm two villages from where we live in South Derbyshire. From here its a short walk across the fields to my first bus stop, and then over the following few days I will be travelling on local bus services using my concessionary pass to arrive at Lands End in Cornwall, hopefully on Thursday 15th August. [/p][p]I have been inspired to do this by my eldest Granddaughter Isabelle who has Cystic Fibrosis. She endures her condition with such a positive and stoical attitude that it shames the rest of us when we moan about trivial things that are insignificant compared to the problems and situations she faces in her daily routine. This is only made possible by the care she is given by the amazing CF team at UHNM in Stoke.[/p][p]Thank you to Isabelle, her Mum and Dad and the rest of our family for the support they have given me to do this for the superb team on the CF ward at Stoke. Also to you all for your support by reading this and if you are able to donate to my cause I will guarantee that whatever we raise will be used to help not only Isabelle but all the children looked after by this amazing group of people we know as the CF team at UHNM in Stoke.[/p][p]So follow the old man on Instagram at #popsakaandre or the link #buspass4cf.[/p][p]Thank you[/p][p]Andy Cole (also answers to Pops) xx[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
