On Wednesday 13th January I was absolutely delighted to be invited along to BBC Radio London to have an interview with the brilliant Eddie Nestor on his Drivetime Show.
Eddie talks about serious topics/issues and peoples views in London and I was nervous but excited to speak about my story, latest fundraiser and the Cure Girls mission “live” on the radio!
Dr Mark Bacon, Executive Clinical Director of Spinal Research also accompanied me and spoke about the fact that the charity isn’t government funded, the statistics of people living with a spinal cord injury in the UK and also the complex issue of a cure.
I mentioned my latest challenge which is a 285 mile virtual London to Paris cycle on my FES bike to raise as much money as I can for Spinal Research. This was a great opportunity and I’ve had lots of messages of support from lovely people and some donations which have been amazing.
You can still listen to the interview here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p03cnh9n#play and using the slider go to 2 hours and 6 minutes.
Cure Girl Lolly.
You can still sponsor me, I’m on Day 5 of my challenge and I’ve cycled 115 miles so far. Please go to www.justgiving.com/Lorraine-Mack5 all donations could potentially get people out of wheelchairs!
Thanks so much!
