Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I am cycling from Land's End to John O'Groats in June 2010.

I am undertaking this ride to raise money for the charity Beating Bowel Cancer.

In 2008 I rode all the way from Calais to the Mediterranean, with my friend Rob to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support, we raised over £1,600. While I was doing this trip I received the terribly sad news of the death of my friend and ex-employee Lucie Litchfield, she was only 25 years old.

Lucie had died from bowel cancer, consequently I have chosen her charity Beating Bowel Cancer as the recipient of the funds that I raise.

I shall meet all costs myself and where I have received any discounts for accommodation I have donated these amounts to the charity.

I am sure you all realise how sad Lucie's death was - let's try to raise funds and awareness to try to prevent other deaths with bowel cancer in the future.

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.

Thanks to everyone who donates, no matter how small the amount.
