DAY to DAY Challenge – 6 Days to Go!!!!

by Jackie Snape

On Saturday 30 June the Chair of our Board of Trustees, Martyn Weller, is starting his 125 mile challenge riding from our Head Office in Harrogate to our Holiday Lodge in Louth, Lincolnshire – he is doing all of this on a mobility scooter!!

Martyn is doing the challenge to raise funds for the holiday lodge as well as raising awareness of the day to day challenges faced by disabled people.

He aims to arrive at the Kenwick Park hotel, which is part of the estate on which the lodge is sited, at 3pm on Sunday 1 July.

His challenge is made possible by the amazing support of Mobility Partnerships, who are loaning Martyn the scooter, several batteries and a support team. 

He will also be supported by our Chief Executive, Jackie Snape, who will be tweeting his progress – from the back of a Harley Davidson!  You can follow the tweets on @2012Dayto Day

Please look out for him along the way and cheer him on, it really is a gruelling task!
