    Weʼve raised £280 to fund a clinical trial in cancer research at The Christie in Manchester

    Manchester, UK
    Funded on Thursday, 1st November 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    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.

    Story

    Tomorrow, I will be taking part in the 60 mile Manchester to Blackpool Bike Ride to raise money for The Christie with others supporting Wibbersley Thorne, official fundraisers for The Christie in the Urmston and Flixton area of Manchester. www.wibbthorne.org

    Rather than your donation going into a general fund it will be used to fund a clinical trial for The Christie, Manchester's internationally recognised centre for cancer treatment and research. www.christie.nhs.uk

    The trial is not NHS funded so its contributions from charitable organisations such as Wibbersley Thorne that fund it. There are approximately 300 people who would benefit from this treatment but unfortunately funds limit the number actually being treated to around 100. The money that you donate will be used to fund two additional research fellows. This will allow a further 50 patients to benefit from this new treatment. It saves lives. …you are saving lives.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this and for any donation you can make: Except for a JustGiving fee, every penny donated goes to fund this clinical trial for The Christie.

    Alternatively, you can hand me cash! or use http://www.wibbthorne.org/main/donate as the Paypal fees are marginally less than JustGiving's (if you do this please put "Dave Reid Bike Ride - <your name>" in the the Special Instructions)

      A huge thank you to those who have made a donation – we’ve raised £220 (including cash donations) so far to fund research at The Christie. My target is £300, so if you wish to make a donation, visit my JustGiving page soon, as I’ll shortly be closing the page and finalising the donations to The Christie.

      I finished in just over 3 hours 55 minutes, exactly to plan, which I am pleased with considering the increasing heat (27 C) as the ride progressed. Thank you so much for your donations - it's for a good cause. Two highlights of the day: going over the finish line, and after a cool shower when I got home, relaxing in the garden with Liz and an ice-packed LARGE G&T. Cheers!

      It's forecast to be hot, so I'll be setting off from Media City at 7:00 to avoid the hottest part of the day!
