Why your support matters...

It's almost a year since I joined Henshaws and in that time I have met some amazing, talented and inspiring people; people whose lives have been turned upside down by a sight loss diagnosis, and people who refuse to be limited by the complex medical conditions they live with. At Henshaws we focus on the positives, and we work tirelessly to support the independence of all our service users and students, so that they can live life to the full and go beyond expectations. 

Your support is even more important at this time, so please be as generous as you can with your sponsorship, you'll be enriching the lives of some extraordinary people, creating many happy memories, and supporting a great, local charity. Thank you.

My Challenge

Wednesday 26th Aug
So, I've finally decided on my challenge - I'm going to do 100 miles in 10 days... except I need to do it in 9 as the 10th day is my wife's birthday and I can't miss it. I'm going to run, walk and cycle - I've not cycled more than a couple of miles since I was 14 and so I know that's going to hurt, the furthest I've ever run is 7 miles (and that was only once), and as my very old, and very lovely dog will be joining me on my walks, it is unlikely we will get that far - so it's mostly going to be running and cycling. New trainers bought, old trainers given to the dog. Please give generously, your donations have an impact on people's lives, and in these unprecedented times it matters more than ever. Thank you.

Thank you to my Sponsors
