Story

Last year when I cycled nearly 3,000 miles across America you asked what are you doing it for and how much money do you hope to raise and, to my shame, I had to reply just for me and nothing!

Well this year I've decide to salve my guilty conscience with a sponsored ride. I'll have a lovely time. But it'll be even lovelier if I know that every turn of the pedals is bringing me closer to my individual target of £1,000 and the collective target of £100,000. So please give as much as you can. Give...

  • £100 and I'll sew your name, your company name or that of a loved one on my cycle gear and wear it proudly every inch of the way (and post loads of pictures on Facebook and my B'spoke blog at http://richarduridge.com/blog/).
  • £250 and I'll shoot and edit an event video just for you or a family member of friend.
  • Give £500 and I'll have your name tattooed on my buttocks (but perhaps not indelibly and definitely no pictures - for that you need to give £750)!
I have no personal connection to Willen Hospice but it's just down the road from where I spent my childhood and it serves an area where many family and friends still live. You don't need me to tell you what a wonderful job the hospice movement does for those at the end of their lives - with only partial funding from the NHS. So dig deep. I will be. And thank you.
