Hi, My Names Joe, I am doing a sponsored Bicycle ride to raise money for Charity. I am cycling from London to Rome which is approx 1200 miles. Follow me on my journey as i embark on theis epic bike ride across south England, France and Italy.
I am raising money for The Kent Deaf Children's Society. My Nephew Charlie (in the pic with me) has been such a huge driving force in me doing this cycle ride. He was born profoundly deaf and uses British Sign Language. He is a real Character and Inspiration to me. Charlie and many other deaf children have to face obstacles everyday, it can be a real struggle sometimes for deaf children to integrate into clubs, activities and general society.
The Kent Deaf Children's Society is a self funded, not for profit, volunteer driven registered charity. KDCS provides deaf children and their families support and advice. KDCS also organise a lot of activities and clubs for deaf and hard of hearing children, these often have specialists and sign language interpreters which enable the deaf children to have fully inclusive experience.
Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
