THE STORY SO FAR

 

On 1st May 2020 we launched this website and the social media platforms  with the three aims of :

  • Raising awareness of TBI 

  • Raising funds to help support Sharon and Joe with the path ahead, and 

  • To create a space to share things like stories, memories, photos, and fundraising achievements. 

Josephs Journey began three months ago with an incredible 200 km bike ride from Sophie and phase 1 finished last week with Newquay 24- another amazing effort from Uncle Steve (in Dubai), Uncle Rich, Uncle John, Major who cycled 510 km's and were joined for the last leg by Sarah and Steve. Many people also got involved in the GO JOE!! fundraising which ran alongside the cycle challenge with events such as Ten To Ten Tennis.

In between the rides we have seen huge support from some of Joe's sporting teams such as Tutbury Tigers,  and also for our #Highfiveforjoe campaign with so many of you taking part and sharing your clips of the Move, Cook,  Create, Commit and Share challenges. The social media shares have really brought us together as a group and have been so valuable for Sharon and Joe during his time in hospital. With everyone's help we have totally achieved the aim of reaching out to support Sharon during what has been a long period of isolation at Joseph's bedside during the Covid lock-down.

Thank you to each and everyone of you for your amazing support and generosity over the last three months. We are thrilled to announce that with funds still to come in, everyone's fundraising and donations has us currently at an overwhelming...
