Story

On May 18th 2023, as the LOPC Centre Manager I'll be starting an EPIC 10 day challenge to cycle from Lands End to John O'Groats. Cycling approx. 100 miles a day for 10 consecutive days, climbing around 17,500m in total elevation - equivalent to cycling up Mount Everest TWICE!

Why??? Given the financial challenges our charity is currently facing, enhancing the facilities is crucial to the organisations future. Outdoor activities are proven to support the social, emotional, physical and mental wellbeing of people of all ages and that's exactly what we want to provide.

New outdoor classroom facilities could help the LOPC to increase provisions, potentially adding over 5400 additional days of activities each year, that's people from across our community that will directly benefit.

Please help support this project by sponsoring me to complete this EPIC challenge. ..................... Just £1 per 100 miles is £10 ....or whatever you can afford.
