Weʼre raising £2,000 to Cancer Research UK & Burscough Methodist Church Community Hall Rebuild

Merseyside, West Lancs
25 days to go

Don't have time to donate right now?


Hello everyone and welcome to “Turbo Timmings” fundraising page.

A few years ago I lost my wife, my best friend Beryl and to cut a long story short I ended up in a very dark place. However, with the help and love of my family and very special friends I have pulled myself together and have now decided that I want to do something to make Beryl, my family and friends proud of me. So here I am in my 78th year, not many years left in the tank now and I thought it's about time I got off my backside and did something worthwhile! So I am taking on the Trans Pennine Trail – Hornsea to Southport - on my motorbility scooter (strangely enough I will still be on my backside), a massive 215 miles, with the intention of raising money for two causes that were close to Beryl's heart.

The first is Cancer Research – I know that a lot of people have been affected in a variety of ways by this dreadful disease over many years and the sooner we can find cures or new treatments the better.

The second is for the redevelopment of Burscough Methodist Church Community Hall. This hall was built over 50 years ago and needs replacing. It serves the local community very well, hosting local clubs and societies, youth organisations and even parties for youngsters.

I intend to take on this challenge from 11th -17th July so thank you for taking the time to read this article and I hope you are in a position to donate something – no matter how small, it all helps.

    Well folks, we are nearly at £4000 which is absolutely fantastic. Thank you all very much for your generosity. My account is closing at the end of the month and hopefully by then we will be close to £5000 - wouldn't that be brilliant! When we add offline donations we are very close to £9000 an amount that I never dreamed possible so thanks again - I love you all 😁

    Well I've done it! 215 miles on a Motorbility Scooter! Many thanks to everyone who supported me, before, during and after my adventure. Its been hard but fun and I've met some fantastic people along the way. Many thanks also to those people who donated - times are hard but your support really means a lot to me. And now on to my next adventure - If Hanibal can get elephants across the Alps then I'm sure my scooter will cope. 🤔

    Good morning all, not long to go now and I'm really looking forward to taking on this challenge. Many thanks again to all who have donated and thanks also to the team who have been working behind the scenes to get this fundraising adventure off the ground. My Just Giving page now stands at £1835.00 but I have also been given donations to the tune of £1000.00 and still have the cash I've collected in the buckets to add on. Hopefully I will have raised over £3000.00 before I set off!
