Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my page. In an ever more chaotic world, it's nice to take time out to help a specific cause, specifaclly for one that affects so many people across all walks of life.

On the 23rd of September, I'll be riding the Velo South (100 miles plus 6,000 feet of climbing!) for a great charity called Kintsugi Hope (

Every single contribution no matter how big or small will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for any support you may be able to give.

“Kintsugi” is a Japanese technique for repairing pottery with seams of gold.  The word means “golden joinery” in Japanese. This repairs the brokenness in a way that makes the object more beautiful, and even more unique than it was prior to being broken. Instead of hiding the scars it makes a feature of them.

‘Kintsugi’ means golden joinery in Japanese and is a technique for repairing pottery with seams of gold.  When the brokenness is repaired the object becomes more beautiful and unique than it was before.  Instead of hiding the scars it makes a feature of them.
