My story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting my page. [/p][p]Four years ago I raised nearly £5000 for Bowel Cancer when I did a free fall parachute jump. Now its time to do another challenge! Overnight on June 8th this year, I will be cycling 100 miles from Andover to London. The training has started and I do hope you will be able to support me! Please click on the link to donate - thank you so much.[/p][p]As well as raising money for Help the Heroes, I will also be raising money for the Salisbury and District Samaritans - one of the oldest branches in the UK. We cover an area roughly from Warminster to Andover and south including all of the Salisbury surrounding areas.[/p] [p]Our doors are open 12 hours a day to visitors, and we aim to have two telephones manned for 24 hours a day, every day of the year.[/p][p] We are passionate about the support we give to our community. Our approximately 100 volunteers provide an incredibly valuable service, each year taking over 17,000 calls, face to face meetings, emails and text messages. We average around 45 significant contacts with callers per day, every day, where a dialogue takes place, -  a great achievement.  It costs us £35000 a year to run the branch and the emotional support provided by the volunteers is a worthy link with the work that Help for Heroes does.[/p][p]I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
