Thank you for visiting the Written Wheel Fundraising page!

On Sunday 12th May at 1pm, all four of my dysfunctional limbs will be attempting to complete a sponsored walk in aid of the two amazing charities detailed below. Always one for setting myself near-impossible goals, my 1.5-mile trek will hopefully be done and dusted in an hour and a half. 

Your support means so much to me and the charities, so thank you in advance for sponsoring my cause. Please feel free to check out the charities' websites, follow my progress by reading my blogs,,follow Written Wheel on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Feel free to check out the Written Wheel Walks Facebook page and come to show your support on the day. Details below:

All sponsors made through the website (via PayPal) will be split between the two charities, Please be aware that if you choose this method , transaction fees will occur. However, rest assured that I will cover the shortfall myself to ensure the charities receive the funds you intended.

If you wish to sponsor me through Be a Brick, by other means, or if you'd rather donate after I have walked, please use the  'contact me.' page to send me a message. 

Please note that all donations must be given by Sunday 9th June 2019.

Be a Brick!

In this day and age, its difficult for charities to stay a float with all the funding cuts the government have made. Lincoln Drill Hall, are facing closure due to these cuts, and have launched a campaign, Be a Brick, so that we, the public can help keep a well loved arts centre open and thriving.

The thing about the Drill Hall it is not just an arts centre, it is an all-inclusive, safe, accessible space for the community to enjoy there range of performances and events, whilst also hosting an affordable cafe to get together. They are passionate about nurturing and showcasing talent no matter the circumstances. 

The situation is far to complicated for me to explain it to you. So please take the time to watch the video below.

Instead of sponsoring me direct why not make a annual donation to continuously support Lincoln Drill Hall for just £10 a Brick. If you are kind enough to sponsor this way, i will repay the favour, by walking 1 mile for every brick which is purchased with the comment 'Written Wheel Walks'.

  • We Walked the Walk

    A thing happened on Sunday; a very surreal thing. I don’t really know where to start because I’m still trying to get my head around it all, but I’ll begin at the beginning and end at the bit when I limped over the finishing line. For those of you who’ve heard most of this before, stick with it; it’s a decent tale.In the New Year, I made the decision that 2019 had to mean something more than any other year.   Read More...

  • Hey, CP...Don't Be a Twat!

    Hey, CP,I thought I’d check in; it’s been a while. This time next week we’ll be done, dusted and very sore. So, before we take a stroll around the park, let me take the time to give you a few friendly reminders.In four short months you’ve had your moaning ass whipped into shape.   Read More...

  • You Are Where You Need To Be

    It’s hard to believe my not so little list of New Year’s Resolutions has become something which has transformed my life. I remember thinking that 2019 had to mean more than any other year, and in the past four months it’s proven to be true.When it was suggested by one of my fabulous friends that I walk around the local park it sounded easy, a quick stroll and nothing more, but it soon turned into a challenge. It was a walk for charity, then it was a mile and a half walk for cha...  Read More...

  • God Is A Woman

    As you all know, on 12th May, I will be completing my first trek in over 10 years in aid of Lincoln Samaritans and Lincoln Drill Hall. I started training with Lee Johnston at Elite Fit, Skegness. My first mission preparation session was on 22nd January, and I genuinely thought I might not have made it out alive. I felt so unfit and didn’t know how on Earth I was going to manage to successfully stand up the next day, let alone walk 1.2 miles. But, by the second week of training, I had w...  Read More...

  • My Very Odd Request

    Dear Sir/Madam/Person who gave me this ticket,I am writing to you to challenge the above notice, and in doing so, I hope to not only be let off the hook, but I also will endeavour to make your day a little brighter. (I can imagine the parking ticket industry can be a tad dull at times).In all honesty, I have no valid reason to challenge the ticket. You are right, I didn’t get a permit, so at 12:58pm on Tuesday 6th February 2019, my vehicle was parked in Festival Car Park, Skegness, illegal...  Read More...

  • Let's Get the Ball Rolling

    Have you heard that the hashtag, #ThingsDisabledPeopleKnow, has gone viral? As someone with a disability, I’ve learnt several life hacks that make daily tasks a little bit easier. You’d be amazed how useful a spatula becomes when you only have one functional arm.   Read More...
