Mike is presenting Louisa with £250 sponsorship towards her Four Piers Cycle Challenge to raise money for the National Autistic Society. Louisa, an Asperger’s sufferer herself, aims to set out in July to ride between the four piers between Dover, Folkstone, Hastings, Eastbourne and Brighton, a distance of over 100 miles.
Louisa of Shrub Hill in Worcester cycles daily as a matter of course, and first took on a cycle challenge for the National Autistic Society in 2015 when she rode from Worcester to Weston and back.
Louisa says, “I am doing the cycle challenge for National Autistic Society because I have Aspergers syndrome and to help others. Please help me by donating and with the extra support from you, people who are on the autism scale and those who are young and old can get the help they need from the National Autistic Society. They are great in what they do with how they help autistic people. I believe that if you can do it don't let your autism stop you because nothing stops me, cycle rides helps me in many different ways and my last two rides were great and I am proud to help disadvantage people. My training is going perfect. Lots of outdoor riding soon.
The National Autistic Society are the leading UK charity for people with autism (including Asperger syndrome) and their families. They support the 700,000 people with autism to help them live the life they choose. They provide information, support and pioneering services, and campaign for a better world for people with autism. Their work relies on public support.
