My story

<p>&nbsp;Dear everybody I know&hellip;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>What better way to enjoy the August sunshine than hitting the UK roads on two wheels and cycling from John O'Groats to Land's End. Seven days to cycle more than 900 miles&hellip;.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>In 2006 I called upon all the people I knew to raise money for breast cancer, when I ran the New York Marathon in 3.47 ( smashed it for an amateur runner) since then I have NOT campaigned year on year to all my family, friends and work colleagues for sponsorship until now.</p> <h2>It&rsquo;s 2011 and times are brutal in the business market and everybody is feeling the squeeze. However I need to draw your attention to the a Charity called the wooden spoon which in short focuses on the welfare of underprivileged children. &nbsp;Its core values are to improve the quality and prospect of life for &nbsp;UK children and young people who are disadvantaged physically, mentally or socially.</h2> <p>In thirteen weeks&rsquo; time after my family holiday in IBIZA sunning myself in a Villa (with my privileged children) I plan to Cycle the length of the country on a push bike in 7 days 20<sup>th</sup> August-27<sup>th</sup>, &nbsp;furthermore whatever money is raised by all the generosity from you all we will match the final figure as a family contribution. i.e if we get to 5K then we will add 5K giving the charity 10K.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>I have put a link to a Virgin Money site below&hellip; All I ask is that you do not delay if you are going to contribute to this fantastic cause and take five minutes now and donate so it&rsquo;s done..</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>I will not be asking again for a further 5 years if that sways your decision to sponsor me. &nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
