We raise funds for family & friends to help them support people facing cancer


Sophie loved an adventure, and this pedal power challenge will most certainly deliver one! 

Nine of us - far from a group of seasoned high-performance cyclists - will undertake a west coast to east coast (almost) English tour from the 11th of August. This is being done to help raise awareness of, and provide funds for, a great new cancer support charity: Sophie's Stars.

Our Grand Départ from Land's End, Cornwall heading to Sophie's home village of Thurston, near Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, will total around 400 miles. Our mission: to complete it in four days to join friends and family for a well-deserved drink at a special Sophie spot, the Fox and Hounds pub.

For the incoming pain to our posteriors we appreciate any donation to make the adventure all the more worthwhile.

Meet the team (strictly in alphabetical order!): Simon Byrne, Gavin Chillingworth, Russell Claydon, Tom Collishaw, Alistair Griffiths, Peter Hart, James King, Philip Mole, Jack Yallop.

Sophie's Stars provides support to family and loved ones of people diagnosed with cancer. We have lived through a cancer diagnosis and treatment of someone else, and felt a gap in the support available to us as supporters. Our mission is to bridge this gap to ensure the support you give your loved ones is the best, whilst looking after yourself. Sophie is our inspiration. She battled her cancer with dignity, courage and lots of positivity. We aim to take these traits and use them to help us drive Sophie’s Stars as a legacy to an amazing woman.
