My story

<p>Hi, thanks for visiting my page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. 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. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;As I have no idea how to blog, twit or upload you'll just have to take my word for it....i am going to cycle across Ghana to raise money for clean water in the small town of Tafo.</p> <p>&nbsp;We set off on 30th September for a 10 day trip which includes 6 days cycling on pretty rough roads in the Ghanaian countryside .. in temperatures reaching the high 30's! Perfect conditions for a portly Butler clad in Lycra. (Don't dwell on that image).</p> <p>&nbsp;So far my training has gone very well and I am confident that i will be able to handle the downhill sections. Now's the time to stert working on those pesky uphill bits.</p> <p>&nbsp; I have to raise a minimum of &pound;2,750 for the ride. I hope to make at least double that.</p> <p>&nbsp;I will put in &pound;1,000 of my own money to kick start the fund and then, my friends, you come into your own!</p> <p>&nbsp; Anything you can donate, be it &pound;1 or &pound;100 will be hugely appreciated.</p> <p>&nbsp;This much needed money will help transform the lives of people in a distant land by helping give them one of lifes most basic necessities ..water.</p> <p>&nbsp;Go on, give a little, you know you want to.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
