About my fundraising

In 1951 my uncle Ian Mackay was born with Down's Syndrome. Shunning the norm, my grandparents refused to hand him over to the state to care for in an institution and cared for him throughout his life.

Now in 2019, the provision and support for families of children with Down's is much better, but a lot of support ends as they mature. T21 is a new charity - chaired by my mum, Ian's sister - which is raising funds to develop and run a cafe and community centre to offer meaningful work and social engagement to young adults with Down's and other learning problems in the Stamford and Peterborough area.

The charity is fundraising for the fit out and running costs building the cafe will entail. More details can be found at http://www.t21.org.uk

I have never cycled 50 miles let alone 100, and have allowed myself two months to train, so any donations to incentivise me would be hugely appreciated - I will ride (at least some of it...) with the dog if I hit target!

P.S. When you make a donation, don't forget to check the Gift Aid box if you're a UK taxpayer as then your charity can claim an extra 25% from the government!
