Story

One Man – One Bike

‘A Europe challenge to raise funds for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research’

This adventure has been brought about by the death of a much loved family member to leukaemia and to raise awareness and much needed funds for this very valuable charity.

Derek Bennett, a founder member and drummer of the West Midlands Premier Traditional Jazz Band,the Zenith Hot Stompers. Derek was a valued and much loved family member, a valuable friend to many and was a valued member of the world of Traditional Jazz. You can view more details of this challenge, the route, the bike etc... at Derek's web page at:

This motorbike trip will take me from London through Europe. The route will take me around Europe experiencing many different cultures along the way and what better way to experience them but on the back of a motorbike!

I plan to leave the UK as soon as the funds are raised and the trip is to be completed within two/three months of departure. The proposed route will include the following countries: Holland, Belgium, France, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Austria, Hungary, Romania, Poland, Croatia, Slovenia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Greece and Turkey.

During this trip I aim to raise money for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research. Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research is the only UK charity dedicated to finding better treatments and cures for all blood cancers, including leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma.

Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research invest in only the best research that brings the most benefit to patients. With 50 years of experience investing in quality research, we have built unparalleled expertise in the field of blood cancers here in Britain. For their life-saving work to continue, they need to raise over £20million every year

My aim is to raise money for and awareness of the work they are doing.
