Hello TeamBrophy followers!

Hi Everyone,

You are going to be seeing more of me on here over the coming weeks so I thought it best that I introduce myself first.

For those of you who don’t know me, I had the pleasure of studying at Aston with Ben and have subsequently graduated however my work has delivered me back to Birmingham.

Before I get started I would like to make a massive shout out to British Triathlon who was on hand to give Ben a few tips on his swimming technique over the weekend at a promo event in Victoria Square, Birmingham.

So when Ben said he had a favour to ask, why did I agree to join him on this crazy, mad, inspiring, exciting, charitable adventure? Note I use the word, adventure, this hasn’t been smooth so far, and that isn’t going to change going forward but that’s what makes it fun.
Anyway, to answer the question, two reasons, firstly Ben doesn’t seemed scared which either means he is so confident he can do it, or that he is scared shitless and is just driving on, I will leave him to answer that one. Secondly is the reason why Ben picked Leukaemia and Lymphoma research as his charity of choice. I can’t imagine losing someone so close to me at such a young age, someone who in reality has come into my life more as I have got older. So if we can help prevent Leukaemia or Lymphoma from taking another life, another brother, father, mother, sister, friend or colleague, then surely it is the least we can do, and we can do this through supporting such a great cause.

Anyway, like I said you will be hearing more from me so let’s all get behind this and make a donation to get the ball rolling, and when you have done that, ask your family to donate and they have, ask your friends to donate. Remember, if you don’t ask you don’t get!

Catch you all soon
