Is Osteo-Arthritis ruining your life?
It doesn’t have to... it hasn't stopped me



If you can help with products, services or support, please contact me at:

I have been extremely fortunate with my sponsors receiving not only great encouragement but also the help much needed to carry out any venture of this kind.

Arthritis Research Campaign - their staff have been brilliant in helping with banners, Tshirts etc. and above all, the area fund raising managers who have been so forthcoming with contact details - and Elaine Ingram , who has spent many patient times with me on the telephone and e-mail helping me with info. - web site:


Corinne Dennis Performance Cycle Clothing - A small, specialist company, producing high quality, stylish clothing for men and women. “As a keen cyclist myself, for many years I deplored the lack of suitable women’s cycling clothing. So I set about designing my own range, and in 1993 Corinne Dennis Performance Cycle Clothing was established”. - web sites:


Healthspan - A Channel Islands company which has supplied me with extra stocks of the vitamins and suppliments that I already use free of charge. Taking certain suppliments has definitely benefited me. Occasionally, I still have to resort to anti-inflammatory drugs, but only under protest! My suppliments include Glucosamine Sulphate 2KCI 2000mg. Vitamin C 500mg and one-a-day Multivitamin with Iron, which is gluten and yeast free therefore suitable for vegetarians (which I am not). web site:
