For those that don't get all this fuss about twitter? Well, much the same as other social media, it's a way to connect with people. There are no geographical boundaries, the whole world becomes your audience..
With this is mind, we're hoping to start sending tweets to those that are following us (you can follow us here) about how we're all getting on with the training and if I can manage it, a running commentary during the event itself. We're also looking to raise awareness with many public figures and ask them to help publicise our cause to their own followers... watch this space!
Training this weekend consisted on a slightly unconventional 10 mile seaside walk for Louise and I (although I definitely prefer cycling than walking 10 miles over sand!) and to our delight have found several more cycle routes for us to put some miles on within the great setting of Holkham Hall in Norfolk.
With palliative care still in the news this week, it's highlighting a system that needs a complete overhaul sooner rather than later. These are real people, not statistics and this is happening now..
We hope that by our fundraising, we can make a difference in a system that is struggling NOW!!
If you can help by sharing our message, donating or even just publicising our efforts, it is very much appreciated.
