“Children, young people, families should have smiles, should have laughter”
Smiles and laughter should be a big part of life. But the financial and social obstacles that many are forced to overcome can make things more challenging than can be managed without help, can make laughter hard to find. So, I am making you a proposition:
Help me raise £250,000 and bring smiles and laughter thanks to two charities that make a difference:
- The Family Holiday Association helps many hundreds of families in dire circumstances to have a simple break.
- Wormwood Scrubs Pony Centre brings the transforming power of horses and ponies to inner London children and young people who face physical, mental or social challenges.
The Challenge for me is to ride a horse across the country to four corners of England, going through towns and cities, visiting 30 cathedrals and abbeys on the way. I want to make enough noise (I am learning to play the trumpet) to raise that £250,000.
The Start Date for the ride round England will be in Spring 2013, and the ride will take 6 or more months.
Its a big task: 2,500 miles; six months riding .
There is lots more information on this website but my challenge to you is here on the home page:
Lets raise £250,000!
Four months since Strider joined me to make our team and progress is good. He is excellent in traffic, was cool as they come at the Ride Launch at Wormwood Scrubs Pony Centre, hacks out well in sun, rain and wind and gives me a safe feeling - even if he is not perfect, and even if I am not either! I have not yet tested his attitude to the trumpet.
