Thank you for visiting my Cancer Research UK Cycle 300 page. This September, before the end of the month, I will attempt to complete 300 miles on my bike either out on the road or indoors. I have invested in a Slim Cycle bike to help me achieve this challenge for Cancer Research UK.
I HATE cancer with a passion! Each person listed below has given me memories that I will cherish.
When Mrs Tyler passed away, I felt lost, she wasn't just our neighbour, she was my friend, always there for us when we were growing up. She listened to me when I wanted to talk to her. My favourite memory will always be the steamed puddings she would bake on Wednesday every week without fail :)
My amazing Uncle John, so many memories, two stand out the most, our trip to Broadstairs with my cousins and my Aunt Sandra, health and safety wasn't a thing then, we were in the boot of the ford cortina estate all venturing down to the seaside, lots of laughs and singing. Another time he went out of his way when I had no car and needed to get to work. Within two days he found me a little fiesta to use so I was not stuck. His passing was really tough as it was days before Georgia was born and I never got to say goodbye to him properly.
Aunt Lorraine again lots of memories. I spent a week at her place in Hastings when I was 17and Shayne was only a little. We spent a lot of time talking, singing and dancing to Tina Turner tunes. She knew how to cheer her neighbours up with the volume of her music ;) lol
Aunt June, I was 19 and were camping in the New Forest for a week. We arranged to drive up to Bath to spend a day with her. I had been very stupid the day before and fell asleep on the lake and cooked myself, Burnt so bad I had two big blisters on my legs, red like a lobster. After giving me a good telling me off and marching me down to Boots Chemist, to get some creams and the pharmacist telling me off too. She took me shopping in M&S to buy whatever food we wanted, she clearly sensed the piggy in me at an early stage lol. We sat up till the very early hours talking and laughing,

below are some photos of the people we have lost from our family. My amazing Uncle John, Aunt Lorraine, Aunt June, Aunt Annie (no photo available), Grandad, Elizabeth Collis, (Keith's mum) and the wonderful Mrs Tyler.
This will be a very tough challenge for me as you all know I am not the fittest at all but I really want to try and help to raise money.
If doing this raises £200 then I will be a happy gal.
I have worked it out 10 miles a day, I will take photos of the monitor on the static bike and when I go out in the big wide world I will try and pair it with Strava, so you can all monitor my progress or my struggles.
I understand for many money is very tight at the moment, any small donation would be greatly appreciated but honest no pressure, I will share this page often but please don't think I am hounding it is to ensure it reaches all my friends as I know sometimes my posts are not seen by everyone all the time.
Hopefully I have sent this up right and it should direct you to the donate button.
Thank you in advance xx
