In June 2013 Robert Bluck and Steve Gibbon (combined age 121 years) will be cycling 1,001 miles from Lands End to John O’Groats to raise funds for Tynedale Hospice at Home. * Follow our exploits and find out more on our website here, follow us on Twitter and Facebook.
They will be cycling for 16 days with two rest days, passing through Okehampton, Taunton, Bristol, Gloucester, Worcester, Lancaster, Kendal, Carlisle, Edinburgh, Perth, and Inverness.
They are looking for both personal and commercial sponsors and hoping to raise £10,000 in all. This means raising £10 for every mile they ride! Please give whatever you can – on their website you can even specify which mile or miles you would like to sponsor!Why they’re doing it?
Both of them have a personal contact with the Hospice. Robert has been working as a volunteer for the last three years, supporting people whose loved ones have recently died. Steve came into contact with the Hospice through the tragic death of two friends: the Hospice provided support for the family at this difficult time.
