Before I hang up my cleats and probably need a new hip, knee and everything else. I will be taking on the Ironman challenge in Venice - this will involve a 3.8km swim, a 180km bike ride, and a full marathon. Months of training have been put into this challenge, blood sweat and many, many tears.

All money raised will go towards Age NI - simply because as we get older (and we know) there will come a time when you need the help and support that Age NI gives to thousands of older people across Northern Ireland.

£5 Pays for a hot meal and friendship for an older person at one of our day centres
£10 funds an Age NI benefits check which could increase an older persons income by avg £62 per week
£25 funds 1 days dementia day care session
£30 covers a First Connect coordinator visit to help begin turn someones's life around
£100 enable us to answer an additional 20 calls to our Advice Service from distressed older people, which would otherwise go unanswered
