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.From September 2018 to June 2019, I am taking on three challenges – cycling the Pyrenees, the National Three Peaks 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!).

The first challenge on the list is cycling the Pyrenees. We’ve had a huge amount of support for the challenge from members of the IPW and our local business community so far. Here is our sponsorship banner which is going to come with us on the ride – we’ll be having photos with it along the iconic route so make sure you follow Bamboozle on Facebook and Twitter to keep up-to-date with our progress.

Just over a year ago when my bike was stolen from Oreton Square outside of Curve, I didn’t appreciate that the thief was doing me a favour. I came of out of my meeting ready to cycle back to the office and… no bike.
