Story

Hello and thanks for visiting my sponsorship page!

On 14 to 17 June 2012, I will be taking part in the Football League Arch to Arc bike ride raising money for Help the Hospices. This challenging three-day bike ride starts at Wembley Stadium and finishes at the Arc de Triomphe, Paris. We will be cycling a gruelling 245 miles over 3 three days through England and France come rain or shine so we will be earning every penny of sponsorship we manage to raise!

I will be taking on this challenge with my sister Leanne and her boyfriend Danny. We have a £1,300 target each that we need to meet in order to participate. You can also sponsor them by visiting justgiving.com/douglasleanne and justgiving.com/danielwhiteside.

You can also sponsor us as a team at... justgiving.com/teams/dougside.

The money raised will go to Help the Hospices who do amazing work supporting hospices around the country. You can watch a video about their work at

www.helpthehospices.org.uk/about-us/

Anything you are able to donate will make a huge difference.

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. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.

Well....I did it everyone!! I actually cycled from London to Paris. When we signed up, however, by the time we finished, we'd clocked up 270miles. The route was extremely hilly which lasted at times, for miles &was pouring down with rain.
