Cambridge Cancer Help Centre provides help and support to people who have, or have had, cancer and their carers and families.

It also endeavours to put them in touch with others in a similar position.

Story

End to End – Le Jog

At the beginning of 2008 I decided I would like to fulfil a long held ambition to cycle the famous ‘E to E’ (Lands End to John O’Groats).  When mentioning my proposal to a cycling friend he immediately asked if he could join me and then as other members of the CCTC (Cambridge Cyclists Touring Club) heard about the proposed trip, the group quickly grew to a total of six.  Our ages range from mid 30’s to 70 years and the bad news is that I fall towards the upper end of that range!  However, the good news is that one member of our group completed this trip eight years ago which means that we might be relying quite heavily on his previous experience.

Each participant will be funding the complete journey independently and we intend to travel to Lands End by train on 1st June to begin our adventure, which we aim to complete within two weeks.

My wife Pam, is the Information Officer for Age Concern Cambridgeshire and she suggested that the Cambridge Cancer Help Centre would welcome additional financial support.  In the course of her work she refers many newly diagnosed patients to this facility and she believes it offers great comfort when individuals learn that there is somewhere locally to turn for help and encouragement.
