A Lifetime of Sport


I know many of you have already bought a copy of my book in support of St Michael’s Hospice but in case you are unaware of it this is the background.

The book is about my lifetime’s involvement with sport covering my 50 years as a competitor and 35 years as a coach.

Over the years many people have asked me how I became involved in coaching but the idea for the book was originally suggested by my cycling pal and fellow Wheeler – Alan Hill. We often talked about our various sporting experiences and Alan used to say to me “ you should write a book about your athletic experiences and trips “ but I thought no more about it.

However a couple of years ago Alan was diagnosed with cancer and eventually passed away in St Michael’s Hospice. Then sometime last year I read about a cyclist, who had written a book about his life of cycling, to raise funds in memory of a friend who had died in similar circumstances to Alan.

So I decided to write my book and I am selling it to raise money for St Michael’s Hospice. All the profits from the sales will go to the Hospice so your help in supporting this very worthy charity would be much appreciated.

So far I have sold over 400 books and have just over 500 to sell .The cost is £5 per book plus £1.30 if posted. If you would like a copy please contact me or send your name and address to - or direct from St Michael’s Hospice via link below – | Books & Music | Bill Berry, A Lifetime of Sport
