Story

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 and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.

I've chosen the Beechwood Cancer Care Centre as my chosen charity as they have been a sea of calm in some very turbulent waters in the past 3 months. I feel the least I can do after the help I've received off them is help them with a little fundraising. 

I've never been one to use my cycling as a means of raising money, but I feel that it's the least I can do for all the people out there giving their free time and energy to great causes. 

During this challenge, I'll be at the end of my first course of chemo, and actually starting my second course towards the end. I've no idea if I'll be able to complete it, but hopefully with the help of my most excellent cycling mates, I will. 

Full details of the challenge can be found here:

UPDATE: I wasn't able to complete the challenge, although I did come within 96 miles of completing it. However, the money raised for Beechwood far exceeded my expectations, so a massive thanks to all who've donated so far. Any reason why we can't get to £1000?
