Phew well this is a little overdue !!!
So the fundraising wheels are still turning and things are busy busy busy with life in general but we are inching ever closer to our target which is AMAZING and I'd like to say a massive Thank You to everyone who is plugging away for us.
This weekend I got a lovely surprise (I was prewarned but still it was lovely) to be included in The Independents 100 Happy List for 2015.
I was nominated by The Lullaby Trust and appeared in the list on Sunday. Recognition is not why I fundraise but I was immensely overwhelmed and humbled to be included for 2015 alongside some truly amazing people.
Congratulations Happy Listers
We are edging ever closer to the big ride Tower 2 Tower.
With 9 days thing are getting a bit tense in this house with training and overthinking about the weather.
On Friday 19th June a team of 'amateur' cyclists will set out from London Tower and cycle North to Blackpool Tower.
This is Alexander's Daddy's challenge and I have to say a massive Thanks to Lisa Preston and Stephen Crowther for doing all of the organising so he could concentrate on staying in the saddle!
From Sponsorship, Accomodation, Bike Checks and all that in between there isn't anything they haven't been able to organise (watch out I might recruit you for next years Ball) It has been a massive amount to organise but they are so very nearly there.
