Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my fundraising page.
Cancer is happening right now, which is why I’m fundraising right now for Cancer Research UK. There’s no time to lose!
Donate to my page today and help bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.
Donating through this page is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with Cancer Research UK. The countdown has started, this July I am going on a big adventure - cycling from Land’s End, Cornwall all the way to John O’Groats, Scotland. I’ll be largely cycling alone, without a support team or a hotel at the end of the day or someone to prepare me a hot meal; with a bit of luck I will find a hot shower! It will take me just under two weeks to travel the 950 miles (assuming I don’t go the wrong way), that’s 70 to 80 miles each day. With the tent, sleeping bag, spare clothes and bike tools on the back and a few hills it won’t be a quick ride. I’ve been training hard and I’m hopeful I will succeed! The ride is for me, the sentiment behind it is for everyone who has been touched by this awful disease. I’d love you to follow me along my adventure so I’ll post pictures and stories - a few grimaces maybe - on Essentially Local Facebook and Instagram. Thanks to everyone who has helped - I am nearly ready! My cycling partners, particularly Chrisie Lindsay for our long distances and early mornings, Martin for speedy hard bike rides, Fran for helping me to get started with cycle plans. Laura, Happy Bodies, for her spin classes and core training and Phil Croney for advice on nutrition. Thanks To Bob and Sue for encouraging to fundraise and Bob for the initial help with the bike. Also special thanks to Phil and Janet Willoughby for help with my bike and loan of so much of the kit. Suzanne, my colleague, for continuously putting up with my crazy ideas. Jonathon JT Taylor, Aniseed Photo, for taking photos – that could have benefited from Photoshop! Thank you for agreeing to sponsor me!
