Weʼve raised £3,220 to Donate to Thyroid Cancer Support West
- Funded on Tuesday, 10th October 2017
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The charity I am raising money for is Thyroid Cancer Support West.
Last year my wife Hannah gave birth to our second child a beautiful baby boy Rafferty. At this time she noticed a lump in her neck and within 8 weeks she had been diagnosed with stage IV Papillary Thyroid Cancer.
The last 10 months have been extremely challenging to say the least but I am pleased to say that all treatment to this point has gone extremely well and Hannah is now back at work,
Prior and throughout treatment Judith the founder of Thyroid Cancer Support West provided emotional support and shared her own experiences of what to expect. That support proved to be invaluable in getting us through that period. I wanted to try to say thank you by raising some much needed funds to enable the charity to support other patients and their families.
I have decided to try to raise £2750 by cycling from Montpellier in Bristol to Montpellier in the south of France and I leave on the 9th of September. It will be 10 days of around 100 miles a day! The money raised would go a very long way so please donate for this amazing cause and my crazy challenge!

Hi Gareth. Great achievement. Here's a top up to cover the cold, wet weather and head winds. Thought the last day was going to be all down hill but you found some great climbs to sign off on.
