Thats John in Englandshire now. He still has a long road to travel. Spending today at Portsmouth getting the bike back fighting fit for the long trek - and all uphill !!!! After the miles he has travelled already it feels that he is just around the corner but it is still going to be a long slog to home. Please keep him in your hearts and prayers xxxx

"Facebook is full every day of happy birthday greetings. It's Jans birthday today. Instead of buying her a card I have given a donation for the Hexhog, knowing that she would approve. Happy birthday babe. Miss you, wish I was there with you. XXX.

Some folk buy race day presents for loved ones, so able bodied can drive a Ferrari on the track. Please think of donating for a birthday treat, so one of these amazing kids with serious illness or assisted needs can have a chance to race on the beach.

Last nights silage dump site. Rough camping.

Bike won't start this morning. Gave the spare battery and charger to a remote village in Morocco, LOL.

Need to strip the bike bare and try to jump start, then repack. Give me a couple of hours.

Challenges! The guys in the village did without for years.

Never a hill around when you need one.

The Kirsty Bryden Memorial Trust

The Kirsty Bryden Memorial Trust is a no overheads charity helping to improve the lives of all children including those who are suffering from serious life limiting illnesses, children with special needs and their siblings.

We are a registered charity number SCO42871.

You have enabled us to help so many children since 2012. We have raised a grand total of £83,000.

Please keep up the good work we can only do what we do because of your donations and the volunteers who give so much.

As a no overheads charity every penny goes to the children we help; We operate on good will and sponsorship, using all unpaid volunteers who use their own private cars, our own private vehicles and we pay for our own fuel to attend events.

We source posters, badges etc from sponsors to deliver 100% of your donation direct to those in need.

The Trust always investigate every cause to ensure no cash get wasted through misguided good intent. We deliver to maximise the benefit of every penny raised.

100% of all donations go to the kids (there are no deductions for expenses or wages taken from donations).
