My story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting my page. [/p][p][/p][p][b]This is not where you can sponsor a poppy. To sponsor a poppy, please go to the Sponsor a Poppy page on my website.[/b][/p][p]I'm Phil & I'm doing a little expedition to commemorate all of the people, from both sides who died in the Great War.[/p][p]I'll be cycling & pushing/carrying my bike for about 3500 miles following the route of the First World War trenches from Gallipoli to the English Channel.[/p][p]I'll be travelling through 12 countries in Europe & crossing or travelling along 5 different mountain ranges.[/p][p]I'll be carrying 2015 poppies with me & I'll be leaving these along the route as a mark of remembrance to the dead.[/p][p]I'm hoping that my journey will take about 3 months to complete, give or take a few days. (Probably give!)[/p][p]If you've decided to donate, then thank you.[/p][p]If you've decided not to donate, thank you anyway, I'll have to do something harder next time! ;)[/p]
