I thought my 40th birthday shouldn’t be all about me.  I wanted to use it as a spring board to do something special, and I should really challenge myself and raise £40,000!

These personal and quite demanding challenges (for me) will take place over the next year and beyond and I won’t stop until I have reached that target!
For those that know me well, know that I am not very sporty preferring a pint down the pub but when I commit to something, I have the drive and passion to complete it.  No matter how hard it will be. 
Some may seem easy but honestly I think the baking challenge for me will be the toughest…. I know I can cycle 20 miles on a Saturday but then work 1300 miles into that and I have to do that Saturday bike ride 65 times in a year, so it’s time to up step the mark and get this kicked off!  We will take lots of videos, keep blogs and update the targets so you can all see where I am at! 
If you feel like you would like to join in with any of the challenges with me, it’s more the merrier.  Please do get involved and together we can make a difference to a whole bunch of people that matter!
