Thanks for visiting my profile. This year, I am taking on Dystonia UK's epic #DystoniaAroundTheWorld challenge to raise awareness and funds for my charity!

I will be taking part in various activities to build up as many miles as I can to power the virtual trip from Dystonia UK's HQ in London around the world and back.

Dystonia is a neurological movement disorder that is estimated to affect at least 100,000 people in the UK. It presents with uncontrollable and sometimes painful muscle spasms triggered by incorrect signals from the brain. It is the 3rd most common movement disorder behind Parkinson’s and essential tremor yet many have never heard of it.

Dystonia UK is the only UK national charity dedicated to helping people affected by dystonia.

Help me put dystonia on the world map and change the lives of people who often feel alone and forgotten by taking on the #DystoniaAroundTheWorld challenge yourself or donating to my fundraising page.

Thank you so much for your support!

Walking home

Have really enjoyed walking back from work Two evenings.  Its a good de-stresser and I was lucky with the weather ! Might still do this after this challenge finishes  at the end of October! 

Tarn Hows

Monday 28th Sep
Lots of trees gone at Tarn Hows today but still stunning. Leisurely ramble with the grandsons around the lake. Uplifting and spiritual especially when a robin popped by for a photo call
