Cateran Yomp 2021

A little bit about me 😊

Heyyy I’m Kailey. I’m Andy’s wife !

We have been together now for almost 15 years and have 2 beautiful children together Georgia who is 5 and Jacob who is 3.

 

 We will be taking part in the Cateran Yomp on the 5th-6th June 2021, it is a 54-mile hike in 24 hours in rural Perthshire.

 

I will openly say I am most likely the weakest link 🙈 in team 13hands14feet. I’m the one who usually volunteers to have the fizz ready at the finish line and hate putting myself “out there” so this is a task and a half for me.

 

This year will be 10 years since I received the knock on the door off a man in a suit telling me Andy has been injured. My world shattered, and next thing I know I’m being driven to Birmingham QE Hospital to meet Andy coming in.

Once he was discharged we never looked back he came home done his rehabilitation and we moved into our new home and had our 2 children. It wasn’t all easy going there was some massive ups and well as some very low times but we get through each day at a time and remind ourselves of how lucky we are to have him.

 

Some might say I’m pretty hard on Andy as from the start I have made him do everything as normal just adapted slightly and no way was he getting out of changing nappies or doing the ironing 🤷‍♀️ but he is a very independent person so I knew smothering him would have sent him crazy.

 

The ABF have been absolutely fantastic not only to Andy but to me and our children as well, they are always super friendly and always make you feel really welcome. They do so much for both serving soldiers, veterans as well as their immediate family. They can be anything from just being there for a chat when it’s needed or your feeling lonely up to helping people out with housing or educational needs helping people get back into work.

 

Please help us raise as much funds as possible for this great charity.

 

Thanks in advance
