I’ve been very lucky in securing a place on Deloitte RAB (Ride Across Britain) which is a 9 day, 969 mile cycling challenge from Lands end to John o’groats!
As this means I now have a charity fundraising target of £900 I thought I’d better make a start on my campaign and put out a plea for help!

I am supporting Launchpad – a charity to prevent homelessness in the Reading area – and my fundraising page is:

I often feel guilty when passing homeless people but it turns out that in many cases simply giving hand-outs doesn’t help instead supporting charities such as Launchpad is far more effective.

I’d really appreciate your support in helping raising funds for this worthy cause. Even if its just a couple of quid – it all adds up!

Whilst I am a keen cyclist I’ve been training all through the winter (which has been pretty cold at times – as per the picture above!) as this kind of endurance event requires proper prep!

Thanks for reading and any support!
