Scott says “I am 50 years old and over the weekend of the 18th/19th May 2019 I will be challenging myself to cycle approximately 225 miles from Brighton Pier in Sussex to Cromer Pier in North Norfolk in aid of a really great charity… Railway Mission.”
Railway Mission is a group of specially trained people who have been offering friendship and a listening ear to anyone connected with our nation’s railways since 1881; and it is the charities aim that nobody on the railways should feel alone, and their Christian ethos motivates them to care for as many people as possible in a supportive, sensitive and impartial way – regardless of their own beliefs.
Railway Missions chaplains help railway staff and the British Transport Police enjoy the good times and get through the bad times. Their chaplains are also available to the travelling public in the event of rail incidents including suicides.
Scott says that although he does not work for the railways his partner does, and it is through him that he has become associated with the Railway Mission as the local chaplain, Michele has helped, supported and shown Dave such kindness through a really difficult 12 months that has involved 2 major and life changing surgeries due to chronic disease.
It is for that reason and as a thank you from Scott and his partner Dave that he is doing this challenge.
He has been training really hard over the winter and now spring is in the air, is feeling stronger and fitter with each passing week and is ‘hungry for the Pier to Pier Challenge’.
