Support John!

Hi folks – it’s that time again for me to set off on my cycling adventures and hope to raise some badly needed funds for the charity I am supporting. Sorry if you already saw this on Facebook…  Some of you will know that I recently took on a volunteer Trustee role at Mind in Mid-Herts and have been overwhelmed by the passion and dedication of the staff supporting mental health sufferers. This affliction is doubly problematic as it is not only impactful to the sufferer, but society has such a long way to go to offer enough treatment, and frankly a better understanding and acceptance of this as a disease that affects so many. Your support for me struggling up these Alpine mountains would mean a lot to me, and more importantly to the sufferers and the volunteers that support them. Every little helps, but a lot helps even more ;-)

PS I’m paying for this pain myself, so all the money raised goes to the charity !!

To read more about the charity: http://mindinmidherts.org.uk

To share my pain….  If you look closely you can see a flat bit !

Thank you for your support – you have all been so fabulous in supporting me and the various charities over the years – your generosity is so very much appreciated.

See you soon!

PPS The number of pictures published of me in lycra is (as always) decreased by the amount raised. ;-)
