The Girls in the photos are my girls Bea (left) Poppy (on the right) both 4years old. Now Poppy looks like a normal cheeky 4 year old but 6 weeks after she was born she suffered serve reflux which stopped her breathing. As you can imagine this was a parent’s worst nightmare. However due to the quick thinking of my wife Lucy who managed to scramble for help Poppy was bought back to us having stopped breathing for over 5 mins by our GP neighbour who luck would have was as at home that day. It goes without saying that it was the darkest day period of our lives and we still relive that pain (of what we nearly lost) on that day every year.

To add my own medical issues and Inspired by Poppy and with the help of the SEI ride to work scheme In the last couple of years I have taken up road biking as a hobby and whilst I am about as aerodynamic as a brick I have with a few colleagues Dave Stappard and Karl Cranswick accepted the challenge of riding from London to Paris next week 5th June to the 7thJune.

So to help in anyway I can I now look to raise money when an opportunity arises for a charity called Living with Reflux, it looks at every aspect influx and looks to raise awareness of it in Infants who suffered the same as Poppy to adults who live with it daily.

As always i appareciate any support you can offer.
