Story

We are raising money for the Jasper King Memorial Trust

As a team on the 19th November we are attempting to cycle and swim the equivilant distance from Edinburgh to the Isle of Eigg. This is 323KM!

....Why Edinburgh to Eigg?

'The Jasper King Memorial Trust' aims to create outward bound and respite holidays on The Isle of Eigg, for anyone affected by cancer.
The Trustees aim is to help create memories and experiences which build self confidence and self esteem at a time when families affected by a diagnosis feel their world is closing in around them.

Jasper was a talented, funny, kind and loving husband and family man. He spent his working life touring the world with his company The Chipolatas, bringing street theatre, clowning, and music, to over 44 countries for over 25 years.

Jasper died on 3rd April 2015 at the age of 44 from stage 4 lung cancer.

His wife Sharon King cared for him during the 3 years of his illness and was also diagnosed herself with stage 2a breast cancer in 2013.

The Isle of Eigg was their favourite place, both the landscape and the community, and it's Sharons wish to form the Trust to create a lasting legacy and to make a difference to others.

How will we do it?

We are going to be in the Holiday Inn Corstorphine cycling 296KM on stationary bikes in a relay, whilst in the pool we are completing a whopping 1846 lengths again as a team.

Please help support us on the mammoth task for an amazing cause, that is very close to all our hearts as our families have all been affected by cancer
