Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

It was two years ago in May that I dug my rusty bike out of the garden shed and decided that, despite not being able to cycle more than 3 miles, that I wanted to take on the epic challenge of cycling from Saigon to Angkor Wat in order to raise a shed load of money for Macmillan.

I need to be able to comfortably cycle 50 miles a day for 8 days straight. Over the last two years I've set myself ever increasing targets:  In May 2014 it was 10 miles without stopping.  In September 2014 I could do 30 miles with ease.  In May 2015 I "managed" 75 miles (I didn't set out to cycle that far - but who cares? I did it!).  But I've still got lots more training to do.

And why Macmillan?  In the last 16 years I have worked in and with the NHS and I have had the pleasure of working alongside the fabulous nurses from Macmillan.  They do an incredible job supporting those suffering from cancer and their families  - I've always admired their dedication, compassion and resilience.

Over 98% of Macmillan's income comes from fundraising and donations.  Your donation won't just help those in need, but will really motivate me as I continue my training.     

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. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
