WALWYN's Cycling Tours &
Down's Syndrome Charity Project.
sends MANY THANKS to all supporters of
Down's Syndrome Charity Project. You are great !
Me especially likes the story of the two guys who had
the smart idea of ''buying'' guitar lessons. Excellent !
~ Gabi, the Feelgoods webmeister ;o)
Sept. 21, 2004:
Steve has sent GBP 3,200 to the www.downs-syndrome.org.uk !
his notes from his Cycling Tour
through Spain (Sept. 2004).
Dr. Feelgood's guitar player Steve Walwyn has cycled
from Land's End (Cornwall) to John O' Groats (Scotland)
(about 1000 miles or 1600 kms)
to raise money for the DOWN'S SYNDROME ASSOCIATION.
(The Down's Syndrome Association is a Registered Charity.)
youngest son Laurence, who is 4 years old (2003), has Down's Syndrome.
AN OVERVIEW AND REPORT FROM THE TRIP is available at Steve's ''End-to-End'' Report & Photos.
01.Sept. 2003 - Steve had some leg problems which he solved with some extra training. See photo below.
03.Sept. 2003 - Lands End, Cornwall. Start of the trip.
11.Sept. 2003 - Text message from Steve (09.13pm UK time): ''Hello... Day 9... I have reached Inverness. Less than 200 miles to go! Have had problems with bike but hopefully fixed now. See you, Steve.''
13.Sept. 2003 - Text message from Steve (13.42pm UK time): ''Day 11 - ten am. Reached John O'Groats in a howling gale and driving rain. 1548 km. Yes!!! See you, Steve''
TO STEVE !

SOME SPECIAL SUPPORT
Excerpt of an email from August 13th, 2003:
my bar The Rose in Beverwijk I would like to sponsor Steve in his
bikeride. All the tips of the month August will go into a special collection
This really is a nice idea and a very kind gesture. Thank you, Jan! - I wish you good business and not too much stress during the ''Feestweek''.
Excerpt of an email from August 29th, 2003:
Well, August is over and I've stopped collecting for Steve so I could transfer the money to you today by internet banking. I can tell you we have collected 420 Euro this month in the Rose!!!! So it is on it's way to your account. In the Feestweek we took a photo of the crew, but that is on a different camera, so it will take some time before I can send it to you. Today I've taken some pictures at home so you can see me emptying the jar and counting the money. [See some of the photos below.] (...)
Well say hello to any of the Feelgoods when you talk to them and I hope Steve will make the trip and succeeds in finishing it and raise enough money.
Bye bye for now,
With love, Jan and the Rose crew.
to Jan & The Rose-Crew for supporting Steve's charity bike-ride!
