August 1st to August 5th - 600 miles on a bicycle
I will be cycling 600 miles from Penzance, then Lands End in Cornwall to Margate in Kent and back to London. It will take 5 days. I will be staying at the camping sites and travelling light just with my backpack, sleeping bag and a tent.
This year I want to fundraise to my local hospital, St. George's child ward/unit (to specify later with the hospital). Hospitals in the UK are constantly under massive financial pressure and they need our help to look after our dearest - the next generation.
I previously collected £560 for University of Liverpool Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund in 2017 and £660 for 11-year-old Szymon in 2018.
