My Story

Support the fight against MS and help me reach my fundraising goal! Follow along as I pedal from John O'Groats to Land's End with Bike the UK for MS!

I’m taking on this epic adventure of riding from John O’Groats to Lands End (1020 miles!!!!) in the summer in order to raise money for my local MS Society through Ride the UK for MS . We will stop along the way to volunteer and meet amazing local MS groups that will help to support!

I have chosen this charity as I suffer from Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis. The MS Society has been instrumental in helping me deal with my condition and I’d like to especially raise money for my local MS society so they can benefit from the extra funding.

Please help me raise funds for this fantastic charity which also pioneers fundamental and ground-breaking research to help stop MS in its tracks!

About me

I was diagnosed 12 years ago after falling from a horse which triggered a ‘first’ major relapse (although I think the symptoms had been there much longer) that left me not being able to walk for a couple of months. Fortunately I am currently able to manage my condition and run a business whilst raising three young children. I manage my MS through exercise and medical appointments.

I haven’t let my diagnosis get in the way of my ambitions and my daily living. There are days when I feel terrible and where normal tasks can sometimes feel mountainous but I just get up, get going and never give in. I am not looking for sympathy. My condition will always be present in my life but it will never be top dog if I have anything to do with it.

A couple of years ago I ran the Great North Run as my kind of ‘coming out’ first charity event, this was a big deal for me as prior to this is my biggest secret. This did me the world of good and helped me deal with my condition; I continue to strive to change my life for the better just in case one day my condition does deteriorate severely. I run a bit, bike more and swim when I really have to J also do the odd bootcamp classes and have historically done lots of events although none recently due to covid restrictions. I may add that I still find all this at times super difficult. It majorly challenges me and I find it far from easy but I’ve got the fire in my belly to carry on.

If I can help raise awareness of MS and stop people automatically ‘putting you in a wheelchair’ whilst raising funds for the MS Society by cycling this event then I’ll really will be chuffed to bits. If you can help me, I’d be so grateful.

Sincerely, thank you in advance.
