ADD/ADHD - Thanet ADDers
WHAT A STAR !!
Richard Complete's Sponsored Cycle Ride
He even had his Dad fooled. On Saturday 27th September, Richard Hensby astounded everyone by gritting his teeth and cycling the whole way round Thanet in aid of Thanet ADDers and Dave Leeís Happy Holidays.
The day came and we really werenít sure whether Richard would cycle 30 yards let alone 30 miles. He hadnít wanted to do much training so I had his two brothers standing by to take over if he got too tired. Richard was loaned a bike by Kenís Bike Shop in Margate and I (Dad, Simon Hensby) followed him on an old racing bike. He was so determined to do it that he astonished everybody by cycling the whole way round. We stopped every 2 or 3 miles and we have photographs taken at each stop.
Richard really showed that you can achieve anything if you put your mind to it. Unfortunately, Richardís determination was not matched by overwhelming sponsorship, but every little helps, and we have yet to hear whether our members managed to get many sponsors on the forms sent with the last newsletter. Could all money now be collected and sent in to us please, so that we can arrange to hand over a cheque to Dave Lee for his Charity. The cycle ride was to raise money jointly for Thanet ADDers and Dave Lee's Happy Holidays.
