John’s now working for British Car Auctions (BCA) who complete a long bike ride every year for charity. They usually travel into Europe but due to all the restrictions this year they are doing a 100 mile loop from the glamorous hot-spot that is BCA Perry Barr. John’s never cycled 100 miles before so he’s in training with some of his colleagues.
The charity they are supporting is called Action for A-T. Ataxia Telangiectasia (A-T) is a rare degenerative brain condition that causes many of the same disabling effects as Motor Neurone’s disease but only affects young children. Children are born seeming normal but peak physically around the age of 5 before slowly losing their physical abilities including the ability to walk, talk and even to feed themselves. The charity Action for A-T raises money for medical research to find a cure or medical advancement to enable children with the condition to live a longer and healthier life.
If you’ve got a couple of pounds please could you support John’s fundraising? Any amount very gratefully received! https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/john-mcconnell8
