My target 220 mi

Please support my Ambitious Challenge!

I’m taking part in the Rapha Ambitious Manchester to London bike ride. I will be taking on 220 miles in one day on Sunday 23 June and leaving my limits behind to raise funds for Ambitious about Autism.

For people that know me you’ll know my amazing son is Autistic, at times its hard, getting out on my bike gives me the opportunity to look after myself, recharge and give from a topped up energy reserve, therefore this cause is extremely close to my heart.  

 Ambitious about Autism want to help create a world where autistic children and young people are heard, included and supported. 

Just £20 can contribute towards a family support worker for an autistic young person. This could allow Ambitious about Autism to provide telephone support to a family in crisis on matters such as welfare, health, and legal support.

Please donate to support my challenge. Thank you so much!

Making it Official

Monday 5th Feb
January has blown by in the blink of an eye, June the 23rd is appearing on the horizon, however I've taken the first step. 

I've made my fundraising efforts official on social media, so now its on. Whilst I'm here in Houston I have been making use of the early morning Jet Lag to hit the gym and put in the effort.

Thank you to my Sponsors
