£875raised of £659 target by 38 supporters

Weʼre raising £659 to go towards the Brig-Aid campaign to raise funds for Sarah's cancer treatment.

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.


In June, my friend and colleague, Sarah Brigham will be making the trip to Heidleberg in Germany to undertake the pioneering Carbon Iron Therapy needed to treat her rare form of cancer; Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma. The cost of this treatment is an eye-watering £60,000 and Team Brig-Aid have already raised a staggering amount towards this, but we still need more.

To find out more about Sarah's treatment and the main campaign, please visit the central fundraising page below:

As part of the campaign, I wanted to do something that was relevant to Sarah's journey and would be a way of joining her on her challenge. The distance from Derby to Heidleberg is 659 miles and I have decided to cycle the equivalent distance within the seven weeks that Sarah will be receiving her treatment. This will average out at just over 94 miles a week.

I will be recording my distance officially on an app and will update you all on my progress weekly.

It‘s a small challenge In comparison, but one that I hope will contribute towards making a huge difference for Sarah during her treatment journey and all that it entails.

Any donations made to this page will go directly towards Sarah's treatment.

Thanks very much for your support.

Love Cheryl x

    Hello everyone, I just wanted to update you on my challenge, which I completed on Sunday 1 July. I managed to cycle in excess of 659 miles and did so in 27 days! I am really pleased with that effort and would like to thank you all very much for sponsoring me and keeping me going. The money raised will go towards helping Sarah with her treatment, but also any excess funds will be donated to the ACC Foundation to help with research into her rare cancer. Thank you so much for your support. x

    Day 14 of my challenge and I'm half way there. I have cycled 333.29 miles and hoping that I can get the rest done in about another 14 days. I'm also 75% of my £659 target, so all in all, things are going great. Thank you x
