Weʼre raising £500 to Fernlea Care Home (Hazel Grove) to raise funds for Residents Outings and Events by sponsorship\support to Ride London 100 mile bike ride.

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.
As you may be aware Russ suffered a severe stroke to his left side in April 2017 and spent 14 weeks in Stepping Hill Hospital recovering as much as possible within the NHS acute stroke care unit. Since then he’s transferred to Fernlea Care Home on Torkington Road as a permanent resident as he was sadly unable to return to his own home.
I’m Kevan Furber, Russ’s twin brother, I’ve signed up to ride the Prudential Ride London event on the Sunday 29th July to try and raise funds to help Russ and Fernlea with events & day trips out for the residents. It’s going to be a bit of ‘slog’ -100 miles and 4,325ft of climbing, but not compared to the life changing events Russ has suffered, I want to try and help him and Fernlea as much as I can.
Prudential Ride London is a massive event with 25,000 riders taking part on closed roads, as in the 2012 Olympics, we’re all riding in groups or singles for our own nominated charities/good causes.

Thank you so much for all you support in getting to the £500 target, Russ our family and Fernlea deeply appreciate all your generous giving to support a 'special' (location tbc) residents outing from Fernlea. I'll keep you posted when we have arranged the trip. 27,000 riders all riding for their own dedicated charities, despite the wind and rain on the route local residents were fantastic in support and riding down the Mall to Buckingham Palace was a special experience I’ll never forget! Again, thank you all so much for your support. Kev
