The weather here in Edinburgh has been miserable this year, cold and wet. My health has also been poor - the two are closely connected! I have therefore had to postpone my sponsored Trike Ride for Contact A Family, yet again.

I shall be very busy during July and August. Edinburgh is also very busy
in August with all the festivals - so all being well the new date for my Trike
Ride is now 10th September 2011.

The money I am raising will be used to support the work of Contact A Family's parent volunteers. They provide support, advice and assistance to parents of children with disabilities throughout the country.

If you would like to sponsor me and help support this much needed work please

With A Little Help From My Friends

This week is volunteer week and I wanted to share with you the film published today by the Edinburgh Volunteer Centre. The wonderful Emily who recently won an award for her volunteering talks about the help she gave me and my mum to publicise my poems and charity trike ride.
