Story

Thank you for wanting to visit our JustGiving page.

Gail, Lesley and Sonya took on the challenge to cycle in Tanzania for Women v Cancer and pledged to raise a minimum of £9,000 in support of Breast, Ovarian and Cervical cancer charities. 

Unfortunately, due to personal circumstances, Gail was unable to take part in the actual ride this year, but Sonya and Lesley rode rode as Team BoA and completed a gruelling ride of 250 miles over 5 days in very challenging conditions. 
These cancers are likely to impact each and every one of us, whether it is personal, a family member or a friend. During the 5 days of cycling 800 women will have been diagnosed with one of these cancers and that is why we have asked people to support us. Donations will assist with research to end the heartache and suffering caused by these cancers.
Thank you for continuing to support us - your contributions are so very much appreciated
