Cpl Chas McNeil - British Army
Hello my name is CPL Charles (Chas) McNeil and I’m a serving member of HM Armed Forces. Recently I have become heavily involved with PHOENIX HEROES www.phoenixheroes.co.uk a non-profit Community Interest Company helping veterans and their families who are dealing with PTSD.
Our mission is to raise awareness across the UK about the high number of veterans that are dealing with PTSD and help our veterans and their families live a normal life again. Through our networks we want to provide the support to as many veterans as possible so they can take part in the outdoor activity days being delivered across our communities.
The Challenge - John o` Groats to Lands End 1173 miles
I have decided to ride my road bike from John o’ Groats to Lands’ End (North to South as that way it should be downhill LOL).
I will be trying to follow the scenic route as much as possible, as suggested by the Sustrans guide. As if this is not a big enough challenge, I will be doing this unsupported and in the middle of winter, starting on the 11th December 2020.
I’m doing this to raise awareness for Phoenix Heroes and hopefully raise some money along the way, please show your support. All monies raised will support PTSD clinical treatment and outdoor activities.
