"On the 19th July I will be cycling across the whole of Ireland in one day! The distance is 210km (131miles) from Dublin on the east coast to Galway on the west coast. This will be the furthest I have cycled in one day.
To give me an added incentive to get through the many kilometers I am raising money for Vision Care for Homeless People. In 2003 I helped start the charity VCHP to provide eyecare services in the UK to homeless and other vulnerable people in an accessible and friendly environment in which they feel safe, welcome and comfortable. Without spectacles 35% of VCHP patients could be considered to have a functional visual impairment.
I have a strong belief that everyone should have access to eyecare whatever their location or circumstances. Please consider making a donation so that we can continue this much needed work."
