Weʼre raising £1,000 to Great Aycliffe Cancer Support Group

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.


My best friend Dee, old gym training partner, fellow netball team member, partner in crime, and all round supporter was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia in January 2017. She spent the following year battling physically and mentally to eradicate the disease and was on her way to recovery. However, in January 2018 it returned and she is once again under going treatment, including a Stem Cell Transplant to hopefully beat the disease.

I will be dedicating my Ride London cycle to Dee and attempting the 100 miles on Sunday 29th July...For any of you who know me, know how much of a challenge this will be for me! As a power athlete ... cardio is tough!

I'm really struggling to get my head around this, my friend who was so active, a great sports person, amazing, inspiring PE teacher can now be so fragile and fighting for her life... please help me in supporting her and others by donating anything you can to The Great Aycliffe Support Group have been a huge support for her and her family, both socially and financially over the past 2 years. This is a fantastic charity and all donations will continue to help others who find themselves in same terrible position from this horrible disease.
