Thanks for visiting my fundraising page.
Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It’s also the most efficient way to sponsor me: The Stroke Association gets your money faster and, if you’re a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation.The Stroke Association’s main focus is to prevent strokes and to give support to people who have had a stroke, and their families, through their information and community services.
Stroke is the 3rd biggest killer in the UK. By sponsoring my participation in this event you will be helping the charity to provide the services stroke survivors and their families so desperately need.
The ride starts on 4th September 2008 in London and finishes in Paris on the 6th..
It covers a daunting (to me anyway!) 244 miles: 85 on day 1, 59 on day 2 and a ‘century’ ride of 100 (yes,100!!) miles on the last riding day.
The training has started and the shorts with extra, extra padding are on order!!
Thank you for taking the time to read this and thank you, in anticipation, for your kind and generous sponsorship.
Every single donation is a valued one. The money raised will make a real difference to the lives of those affected by stroke.
£20 Keeps the Stroke Helpline open for an hour
£50 Helps the charity publish information booklets
£100 Could provide a Welfare Grant for a stroke patient who needs a helping hand buying essential equipment for life after stroke.
Thank you again for your support, and thanks to Dad for the photo!!
UPDATE: I made it!! 3 days of wind, rain and more wind,but the training paid off and I got to the Arc de Triomphe safely and without too many aches and pains!! A fantastic experience, great teammates and excellent leaders and support crew. Thanks to everyone who made it such a great event to participate in.
Please sponsor me now!
