I'm supporting children and young people with disabilities in North Yorkshire

Ryedale Special Families is an independent charity based in Malton. Founded in the 1990s by a small group of parents with disabled children, it’s grown significantly over the past 25 years, and today, provides care and support for more than 400 families throughout the Ryedale district of North Yorkshire.

Providing a wide range of services including information, advocacy, flexible one-to-one care, social groups and family activities, it offers a vital support network to help families and young people with all kinds of disabilities. The charity depends heavily on fundraising to finance the work it does, and the Yorkshire Wolds Cycle Challenge is an important part of this picture. The loss of income from the cancellation of this year's Yorkshire Wolds Cycle Challenge is a devastating blow to the charity and the families it supports and money raised from this Virtual 2020 event will make a huge difference to them.

i like to ride my bicycle, but prefer when others peddle.

Wednesday 24th Jun
It's quite apt that I'm doing a bike ride as it's probably Emersons favourite day out with the guys from RSF. They have taught to him how to choose his activity through the use of photographs and if the bike photo is there he picks it every time. It's certainly a good work out for them as he doesn't like to peddle too much, instead he will leisurely sit back and trail his hand through the grass whilst being driven, given how challenging I found biking after my first couple of rides I think he may have the right idea !

My little man

Thursday 18th Jun
Emerson was diagnosed with autism at the age of 2. Now a strapping 14yr old he enjoys weekly trips out with 2 support workers from RSF and not only does he get to visit places that would be impossible for us to access with him on our own it also gives his 3 sisters some respite from what is sometimes a very difficult home life. They get their parents to themselves for a few precious hours.
We have accessed RSF for over 8 years now and without their help and support life would have been, and indeed was, very different.
With their help I've been able to dedicate time to starting my own business.
Now, it's not a good time to ask people for money at the moment, my own business has literally stopped over night due to the pandemic. It's also not a good time for me to do physical exercise because , to be frank, I hate it. Anyone who knows me is well aware if I can take the car, I will.
So I'm biking 144 miles in July to help with some much needed funding to keep this charity running as they themselves like everyone else are feeling the pinch. I know how much we and other families rely on RSF, they're our lifeline.
