We raise funds to support patients at Leeds Cancer Centre

Charity Registration No. 1170369

Story

In April this seemed like a really good idea - despite not owning road bikes or having a clue what we are doing.  So here we are, almost 3 months later and we can remain in denial no longer.  The bikes have been purchased and some training has been attempted; it's still a case of "all the gear and no idea" but in less than 3 weeks time we will be setting off to cycle over 300 miles in 4 days from London to Paris.

We are doing this because the work undertaken at St James' Institute of Oncology really does make a difference not only to the patients they treat directly but all the others that benefit from the research and pioneering work they do.

We experienced that directly when over 12 years ago Sally's Dad received cancer treatment pioneered at St James'.  Since then he has continued to enjoy a busy and active retirement, lived to see more grandchildren be born and grow up and next month Sally's Mum and Dad celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary.

Please support us so that there can be many more positive patient outcomes like this.
