Help for Heroes
Hello and Welcome from An Idiot got Bored. The Slow way Down.
London to Johannesburg 25,000kms on a Suzuki 125 cc motorcycle!!! Departed from The Biker Store, Blindley Heath, on Saturday September 14th 2013, crossing at least 19 countries, mountain ranges, deserts and areas of severe famine and conflict. In total covering some 25,000 km.!!
This challenge will be undertaken solo and completely unsupported. Just me, a 125 cc bike and whatever I can carry on it.!!! I am doing this for our brave Service Men and Women, who have been wounded, often losing arms and legs. Can you imagine that?
LOOK FOR THE DONATE BUTTON. DONATE AMOUNT CAN BE CHANGED. A fiver a tenner, a thousand of the Queen's pounds or some land in St.Lucia, I don't mind it ALL counts :).
I shall be updating a blog at http://anidiotgotbored.blogspot.co.uk/ regularly during the challenge with details of the journey, media and sponsors (If you run a business and would like to be part of this challenge, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org

About Help for Heroes
Help for Heroes offers comprehensive support to those who have suffered life-changing injuries and illnesses whilst serving our country. This is provided through grants to individuals, other Service charities, capital build projects and our four Recovery Centres across the UK, in Catterick, Colchester, Tidworth and Plymouth. These will offer support for life. The money raised by the hugely generous public has been used to support our wounded, but there is still so much more to do. Soldiers, sailors and airmen who are injured today will still need our support tomorrow and in the days that follow, for the rest of their lives. They are still battling and we won't let them battle alone.
