Anthony’s New Wheelchair: Eurocycle 2015

March 30, 2015

Posting this in support of a friend of Same Difference.

I will be cycling across Germany and Denmark to reach Sweden in June of this year and in doing so I’m trying to raise funds to help my friend Anthony who is physically disabled and in urgent need of a new electric wheelchair.

Anthony’s current chair has sadly reached the end of its days. It is central to his life, he relies on it for his independence, to get out and about, to keep active and to do his volunteer work.

These chairs are not cheap, they cost about £8000 so whatever you can give to help keep Anthony on the road will be deeply appreciated. The Nihal Armstrong Trust is co-ordinating all the fundraising on Anthony’s behalf.

My journey will be approximately 500 miles and should take 11 (eleven) days.

You can sponsor me by the mile, (a donation of £10 would be 2p a mile), I’ll leave you to work the other amounts out! Or simply make a one off donation.

There is much more information about Anthony and my trip in general on the event blog at www.anthonyschair.weebly.com

You will be able to keep up to date as I progress towards the event and also during the event, where I hope to be able to give daily updates.

Through Virgin Money Giving all donations will be quickly processed and passed to the charity. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on the charity’s behalf where the donor is eligible for this.

We really do appreciate all your support and thank you for your donations.

David and Anthony
