THE 70SEVENTY CHALLENGE


Bamboozle’s mission is to offer learning disabled children and young people, along with their families and carers, innovative opportunities to interact meaningfully with the world, and to confound expectations of what disabled children can achieve.

In the summer of 2018, I am taking on three challenges – the National Three Peaks, cycling the Pyrenees and running a marathon.

None of which I’ve done before! Madness!

I’ve started training. I plan to raise £70k for the disabled kids we work with. I need help! Lots of it.

We are appealing for help from as many individuals and local businesses as possible. Please help me and the kids if you can. It’s going to be a fantastic year and lots of fun, (and no pain at all!).
