INSPIRATIONAL: Hemel Hempstead man takes on mammoth challenge for neighbour 

 Published on: 28th August 2021   |   By: Dean Shaw   |   Category: Uncategorized

An inspirational Hemel Hempstead man cycled to Scotland in a bid to raise funds for a new kitchen for his disabled neighbour.

Steve Golc, from Gadebridge, set off on his epic 333 mile journey from Hemel Hempstead to Annan in Scotland on August 14 before completing the mammoth challenge a week later.

He took on the challenge to raise £2,000 so money could be raised for a new kitchen for his neighbour, Wendy, who is registered disabled and lives on her own.

Steve was also inspired because he wanted to pay tribute to his wife’s dad who passed away in 1998 on August 20 – the day Steve wanted the challenge to end.

Speaking on his fundraising page, Steve said: “We generally see people raising money for the big charities but very often we are blind to the people that need help directly around us.

“My neighbour is registered disabled and having lost her elderly mother, she has been living on her own and without a functioning kitchen for four years.

“This kitchen would improve her life enormously, and besides the neighbourhood, she has no one else to help her.”
