Jeremy Leigh

Welcome to my page







I have signed up to ride 100 miles for a small charity called KEF. While I can cycle shorter distances, 100 miles is still 100 miles and is not an easy feat... So here is your chance to partner with me - let me do the cycling and you can sponsor me and help KEF. Every pound sponsored helps drive me forward by making my efforts worthwhile, and most importantly, is massively needed by KEF. 

Having now participated in over 7 KEF camps (managed 5) with my wife as cook in all 7 (being fair, Gita's efforts far exceeded mine) we know how vital KEF really is. You need to see KEF in action to understand how important it really is and even then, it's what you don't see behind the scenes that is really so staggering. The time, efforts, costs, care and devotion.

In short, KEF provides respite and care for special needs and mentally handicapped children and young adults from across the country. It provides out-of -school-activities, recreational events and residential trips including summer and winter sleep-away camps. It is an organisation that is necessary for the children themselves, but especially for their families, providing much needed respite and time to focus on other family members. See for more info.  

I have many stories and examples demonstrating the impact that KEF has, but to give 2 small glimpses:

  • The first time we did camp the feedback from one family was that it was the first time they had managed to sleep for more than 2 hours at a go at night and with their bedroom door closed in over 9 years - and their other daughter got married the day after camp. The entire wedding was planned around the 2 weeks respite that camp would give. 
  • One of the parents explained that their child wakes up every morning at 3am and is ready to start his day. Both parents are professionals working full time and they take turns to share the burden as he cannot be left unsupervised. Camp provides a much needed rest to help them recharge and keep going for the next 6 months...

If you have sponsored me in the past then thank you again - I appreciated the support you showed which kept me going every pedal of the ride. Unfortunately the demand for KEF only grows and so I am hopeful you will consider being at least as generous! 

Thank you!
