Story

Firstly we would like to thank you for taking the time to read our GoFundMe page.

A few days before Christmas our friend, Matthew Bolton was diagnosed with Oesophagus cancer. Matthew is in a lot of pain and can barely eat, he has lost a staggering 6 stone since September. Matthew is extremely tired and since his diagnosis he's already had 6 blood transfusions. Chemo has started and later in the year he will under go a 7 hour operation to remove the tumour.

Whilst Matthew remains to have a positive attitude about his diagnosis, he can't help but stress about the financial pressures he and his partner will now face.

Along with all this, Matthew and his family have a passion for getting out and away in their much lived campervan 'Helga' which they have made many happy memories in. Unfortunately a few weeks ago Helga was heavily damaged in a hit and run incident with a tractor and trailer and so is currently off the road.

As a popular member of his local VW club, Donny Dubz, Ben Fisher and myself have decided to attempt to cycle from where we have our clubs monthly meet at Hayfield Lakes just outside of Doncaster to Skegness. A total of 79 miles in order to get behind our mate and raise some funds to help him and his family make some more memories together.

We will be doing this on Saturday 26th May 2018. Those of you that know Ben and myself will know that we are more likely to be found sat with a pint in ours hands, not straddling a bike and doing nearly 80 miles. All we ask is that you get behind us by donating what you can so we can show our support for a great family.

Thank you for taking your time to read this.

Gav and Ben
