raised of £800 target by 19 supporters

    Weʼve raised £415 to to help research into Prostate Cancer and to allow Mickleover F.C. (ex Sports) Reserves to play. I have ridden 362 miles around Derby.

    Funded on Monday, 30th November 2020

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    I completed the distance on Monday Bank Holiday with a final ride up the A6, sharing the road with 200+ mental bikers!

    Donations are going to be split 50-50 between Prostate Cancer UK and Mickleover F.C. Reserves. When I have completed the task we will divide the money raised by 2 and send each cause their total.

    361 miles is the distance to Lands End via A and B roads.

    The mileages will be added consecutively and my aim is to complete in 3 weeks. (most of the charities are doing 100 or 300 miles and giving the rider a month to complete) The miles will be recorded on "Map my Ride". It will take roughly 33 hours at an average of 11mph. Decent cyclists do 14/15mph.

    The reserves have been promoted to the top league in the Central Midlands League. The promotion means we will be playing at a higher standards but has the drawback of incurring increased costs. We now have to pay for 3 officials for every game, provide post-match hospitality and a matchday programme. We estimate that we need to find an additional £2,000+.

    We are part of the pathway from the Academy to the First Team and being in a higher division when players make the step up the transition is not so great. At Mickleover F.C. we are fortunate to have a manager, John Mcgrath, who will give players the opportunity and not only do they have the chance to train and play with quality players there is a nucleus of experineced ex- pros on hand to provide sound advice to help with their development.

    With regards to Prostate Cancer In the UK.

    Prostate cancer mainly affects men over 50, and your risk increases with age. The risk is even higher for black men and men with a family history of prostate cancer. I. know 3 people who have been screened and caught the cancer early enough to get treatment which has been succesful.

    In England

    More than 40,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year in England.

    More than 9,000 men die from prostate cancer every year in England.

    Every hour, one man dies from prostate cancer in England.

    More than 325,000 men are living with and after prostate cancer in England.

    Message from the charity: In challenging and uncertain times, we’re proud to provide more than 150,000 people every month with up-to-date, evidence-led and award-winning information about prostate cancer.

    We also fund research into better ways to diagnose prostate cancer, so men can be diagnosed earlier and more accurately – and into better treatments with fewer side effects, so that men stay alive and well for longer.

    But the COVID-19 pandemic has forced labs across the UK to close, bringing that important work to a standstill.

    We’re working hard to raise the funds we need to get our researchers up and running again once labs re-open, to ensure progress isn’t lost.

      Last 25+ on Bank Holiday Monday - job done. Had to deviate through Little Eaton to get up the miles as I turned back early on the A6 due to the excessive traffic.

    I don't particularly like cycling although I have done several rides which have raised just over £6,000 for MS Trust, Prostate Cancer, BHFT and the Erskine Hospital. I'm not a frequent cycler and would maybe go out once a month and NEVER in the winter or when it's raining!
