Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

We are Karen & Andy Stroud and for the past 8 years we have been raising money for Breast Cancer Campaign. 

Most years we have taken part in the “Wear it Pink day” by completing a 6 hour bike ride on a static bike outside our office in the Portsmouth Area during breast cancer awareness month in October. In 2010 we completed the Lands end to John O Groats cycle challenge, cycling over 1,000 miles in 11 days. During this time we have raised around £5,500 (£3,000 of this was raised during our end to end cycle challenge) in sponsorship and public donations. 

This year I will be 50 and Andy will be 60 and we wanted to use this joint anniversary to support our chosen charity. We are taking part in the Euro City Cycle challenge in September, four days, three hundred miles, three countries and three capitals, London, Amsterdam and Brussels. 

In the UK breast cancer is the most common cancer and one woman in nine will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.   I am raising money for the charity Breast Cancer Campaign as their mission is “to beat breast cancer” and personally my Auntie was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007 she finally had the all clear in 2012. 

The money raised will by used to provide funding for research into finding an absolute cure for the disease and so your donation will go towards helping to save the lives of more mums, daughters, friends and colleagues.

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 and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.
