My name is Simon Ufton, a 49-year-old joiner from Derby. I'm a dad to two teenage boys, Matt and Lewis, and Husband to my wonderful wife, Sarah. In my spare time, I enjoy watching Derby County play and cycling when I've got the time. We have a Border Terrier called Monty, who I like to walk regularly during the evenings and weekends.
As well as building some 70,000 new homes for those disadvantaged in the worlds' poorest countries, Habitat for Humanity has helped to repair over 100,000 houses, something which many of us take for granted when we arrive home after work. On Saturday 15th June, me and 16 others will spend a week in Malawi, building at least 3 houses for the local community. Although a small contribution, I have also set up this page in an attempt to raise £1000 towards the Shire Tributary River Crossing, Habitat for Humanity's three-year ongoing project.
On Saturday 25th May, my two boys and I will walk the Kinder Trespass Anniversary Walk in the Peak District, 15.3 miles starting and finishing in Hayfield to fundraise for this fantastic cause. Any donation that you are able to make will be massively appreciated, no matter how small. Just don't forget to tick gift aid!
