We did it
On 14th December 2017 we successfully raised £555 with 18 supporters in 56 days

I am attempting the world record manual wheelchair push, pushing from Landsend to john ogroats, to be completed on my 50th birthday in April. I wanted to mark my half century with something special rather just than a party. What is  more suiting than something i really enjoy and has helped with my mental health? I have applied to the Guiness book of records for an official attempt. I have some of my army brothers involved. If you would like to help out please get in touch.

My disability is service related. I have spinal issues and i have had surgery at multiple levels. I also had a brain problem having had 4 brain operations. I used to be a marathon runner until my problems started back in 2011. Being told id never run again was a bitter pil to swallow. But i gave my self a kick up the backside  2 years ago i started wheelchair racing about 18 months ago. I now train most days and race most weeks.

The charity i am raising for is voluntary run by a lovely couple Richard and Dawn Woodhouse. They pay for veterans and serving service personnel who are suffering with mental health and physical issues to go on a holiday to Jersey all expenses paid they also psy for their familes. I benefitted this year and had an amazing time. The people of Jersey have really taken thus charity to their hearts.

Every penny helps as does every share. Even just a pound. Most social media groups have an average of 2k people so a quid goes a long way. If you have your own business and you would like to help  you can write tax off against charity so it will cost you nothing. Thanks for reading.

Got an idea like this?

Our crowd has raised over £55 million for bright ideas and good causes.
