Help the Heroes – One Woman and her Bike

helpMy friend Julie has decided to take on a challenge to raise money for Help the Heroes.  It’s is a fabulous charity helping service people who have been injured in current conflicts, as shamefully the British government aren’t doing much about it.  I come from a service family, my Dad, Grandad and Great Grandfathers were all in the Army.  Although I might not agree with the wars we’re currently fighting, you can’t just leave these brave people to their own devices when they get home injured.  They have fought for our country and should be treated respectfully and cared for properly which is not happening as it should and hopefully this charity is having an impact on changing that.

Julie is my new hero, as frankly I couldn’t cycle from one end of town to the other.  However she is going to cycle from Land’s End to John O’Groats.  If you’re a bit rusty on British Geography that’s a 1000 miles, the whole length of the country. And to achieve this in 12 days, she’s going to be cycling a massive 90 miles a DAY! My bottom is sore just thinking about it!!.

I know times are hard at the moment, but if you have any spare change kicking around and you’d like to help,  Julie’s sponsor page is here

Thank you xx
