Story

Please consider yourself, your family and friends, dig deep and donate, cheers, Gordon and Rob

The Event - there are two of us and we are both cycling the full 1000 miles Land's End to John O'Groats in 10 days at the end of August 2010 hence,100 miles a day for 10 consecutive days.

Why, I think the choice of charity probably gives our reasons for this away.

There are 2 good reasons to support us;

1) You will get to help a charity that will almost certainly touch the lives of your family and friends at some point.

2) Will the cycle hurt? Yes, but we are willing to suffer the blisters, boils and body odour! All you have to do is sit back in your comfy armchair and donate!!

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer.
