My mother sadly passed away on the 26 April 2015 she had been ill for some time however we just didn't realise how serious it was as she was very much a trooper and got on with life.
As her only son it hit me hard; I quickly had to concentrate on something that she loved so much - donkeys!
She never wanted presents at birthdays or Christmas it was always "Send some money to The Donkey Sanctuary if you're going to do anything."
Her JustGiving memorial page is currently sitting at just over £1,600 which is amazing. I started to think what goal I can set myself that will both challenge me and benefit The Donkey Sanctuary.
I got in touch with my best friend Paul and proposed the idea to him and straight away he was on board with this massive challenge.
Both myself and Paul will be cycling from Paris to Stockport our home town from 26 – 29 August 2016, covering just over 400 miles in four days in an attempt to raise even more money in memory of my beautiful mother for such a great cause.
