Ashley and Jo - Tour de France 2012

300 miles in just four days, that is just what Ashley and Jo did earlier this month!  Whilst most struggled with the physical challenges, OCD-UK's Ashley Fulwood and member Jo (Northern Star) also battled internal OCD challenges as they successfully cycled from London to Paris.

Jo told us "Still can't believe I made it to Paris - OCD did its damnedest to make sure that I didn't, but between us we got there and I am chuffed to bits."

Ashley told our forums "It was such hard work physically, the sun was hot which made it much harder, but I guess that is better than pouring rain, but it was such an amazing challenge. Hard and exhausting, it pressured every bone, your feet, your legs, your hands blister, even my chest is bruised from compression of chest over four days. But it is one of the most amazing things I have ever done, and thank you to all of you for your sponsorship and good luck messages on here and in email, I really do appreciate all your kind words."

Great news for OCD-UK - during the month of July, OCD-UK is one of the three beneficiaries for the Waitrose Community Matters scheme in the Crowborough Waitrose store. Waitrose Community Matters is a scheme by which each month three organisations are chosen to receive a proportion of £1,000.

Waitrose shoppers are given a green token each time they shop, and they then drop the token into the charity container, the proportion of the £1000 donation received is dependent upon the number of tokens OCD-UK receive in nomination from Waitrose shoppers.
