Please keep those donations coming in. Together we can make a real difference.
We have recently been stomping round the country training for our Kilimanjaro charity trek. From Ilkley Moor to the Northumberland coastline and hiking the mighty Ben Nevis in Scotland.
We have been challenged walking in all weathers, had injuries along the way but such good practice preparing us for the big event.
In September Roy and I will be flying to Tanzania to hike Kilimanjaro for two charities. Guts uk and the east anglian air ambulance.
The East Anglian Air Ambulance receives no regular funding and relies on donations to keep on flying and saving lives. We are self funding the trip so all money donated goes direct to the charities.
The Air Ambulance was called after Roy fell from a tree in the Forest and suffered a brain haemorrhage. You never know when you may need their help.
Guts UK is the only UK charity funding research into the digestive system from top to tail; the gut, liver and pancreas.
GUTS UK IS COMMITTED TO FIGHTING ALL DIGESTIVE DISEASES. We all have guts. 25ft of them, in fact. Yet our guts have been underfunded, undervalued and understaffed for decades. Guts UK exists to change that. Digestive diseases are conditions that affect the gut, liver and pancreas. Collectively they are a factor in 1 in 8 deaths in the UK. Guts UK supports medical research that saves lives.
Bowel disease and bowel cancer have impacted my family. Most of us know someone with a digestive disease or cancer and the impact this can have on our lives. Abigayle
The hike and flights are all self funded. All donations will be going to charity. If a donation is not possible can we kindly ask you share our social media posts.
Sports therapy treatments have helped me in both competitive and leisure cycling, helping recovery as well as alleviating discomfort, especially from an old hamstring injury. One of the things I like about Roy is the mix of a friendly yet professional approach with a wide range of knowledge, including dietary advice and exercise tips as well as helping keep me focused and motivated. I’ve also learnt the importance of rest to help achieve my goals!
My decision to start training with Abi 15 years ago was inspired! The difference in my physical condition is astonishing and rather than feeling older and more exhausted I genuinely feel rejuvenated. The move to their own premises in Framlingham and then Rendlesham has added privacy and flexibility., add massage the steam room and hot tub – well I am extremely happy (and fit).
What I like about Roy is his non-judgemental approach, his good listening skills and his sense of humour. He is very refreshing. Also what is different with Roy is his ability to combine treatments, being qualified in so many areas – Counselling, reflexology, hypnotherapy, massage and reiki, to name a few. This can be very useful, especially with an illness as diverse as ME, and a person as diverse as ME!
