Short Description

PROJECT NOW CLOSED - successful. Over the May bank holiday weekend I will be cycling the 140 miles Coast to Coast challenge from Whitehaven to Tynemouth. All money raised will go to the Teesside Hospice. After losing my mother to pancreatic cancer last year I would like to raise as much money as possible to help cancer charities.

Long Description

The Coast to Coast is a charity challenge starting with our rear wheels in the Irish Sea in the town of Whitehaven, from where we will take in some of the best scenery Britain has to offer - from the stunning mountains of the Lake District to the beautiful open moors of the Northern Pennines! Please help motivate us on this beautiful but incredibly difficult challenge by donating whatever you can - EVERY PENNY RAISED WILL GO TO CHARITY. Thank you so much for your kind support

WELL I DID IT - IT WAS REALLY HARD WORK BUT THOROUGHLY ENJOYED IT. SEE THE PHOTO WHEN WE ARRIVED BACK IN SUNDERLAND. THE PROJECT WILL REMAIN FOR A COUPLE MORE DAYS IN CASE ANYONE STILL WANTS TO SUPPORT. IN ADDITION TO WHAT HAS BEEN PLEDGED HERE IVE ALSO RECEIVED A FURTHER £95 FROM COLLEAGUES SO THANKYOU ALL AGAIN FOR YOUR KIND SUPPORT.

Additional Info

A bit about the charity I am supporting - Teesside Hospice exists to enhance the quality of life for those suffering from advanced cancer and other life limiting illnesses. It offers specialist palliative care and support to patients and carers, in the belief that each person is entitled to dignity and choice through a range of services including, Inpatient Care, Day Care Service, Respite Care and Bereavement Counselling. Any support will help - no matter how small.
