Occupation Special Needs Teacher retired
Location Romsley, Worcestershire, United Kingdom
Introduction A huge thank you to everyone who sponsored me last year and a big one to everyone who I met or helped in any way. I am so grateful to you all. Please consider sponsoring me for my efforts. I am passionate about natural history and am very concerned about climate change. Therefore I have chosen to ask you to sponsor me to raise funds for the largest wildlife charity in Britain, namely the RSPB. Also for the WWT. If you prefer to sponsor a more people directed charity, then please consider Asthma UK. Over 6 million suffer from the condition in Britain. I have now finished last year's cycle ride to every RSPB and WWT nature reserve in Great Britain. I managed it! Now doing a year long cycle ride again this time to try to see the magic 300 bird species in one year by cycling. If you'd like to contact me then please phone me on 07988754090 or email me at bikingbirder2010@hotmail.com - many thanks.
