Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So, I've decided to take on the gruelling London to Paris cycle ride - covering some 300 miles over 4 days. The reason - I like a tough challenge, I want to get fit, and most importantly I wanted to raise money for a truly worthwhile cause that I have personally benefitted from.

This year I will be riding for Cherry Lodge Cancer Care - a charity committed to improving the quality of life for those living with cancer, their carers and families. I will be fully funding the ride myself - so ALL money raised will go to Cherry Lodge. They provide high quality information, support and complementary therapies to people affected by cancer. I cannot emphasise enough how special Cherry Lodge is, and the huge help it gives to people that are going through such a traumatic experience.

Following my last bout of Hodgkin's Lymphoma back in 2012 I have first-hand experience at the amazing work Cherry Lodge do, which I found invaluable following my diagnosis, during my treatment and subsequent road to recovery after being given the all clear. I still use their services today and would not have been able to cope fully with my experience without their help.

To give something back I want to raise as much money as possible for Cherry Lodge, so that other cancer sufferers, their carers and families can also benefit from their incredible services. They are a small charity that cannot operate without donations - so please dig as deep as you can and donate to this wonderful organisation.

I will be giving up a lot of sweat, family time and weekends to train, I will be spending a fortune on funding the ride itself as well as "having" to buy lots of cycling paraphernalia (this excites me a lot) - and I will also be gaining a very sore bum - but I feel this is the least I can do for a charity that gave me so much.

Please please please donate whatever you can - I don't care how big or small (although in this instance bigger is better). Donating is very fast and easy so no excuses!

Please share this in your facebook pages, tell your friends, neighbours, work colleagues and anyone else that will listen.

Thank you in advance for taking time to read my page and hope together we can smash the small target I have set.
