Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

A group of us twitterers have stupidly decided that cycling Lands End to John O Groats (the entire length of britain) would be a jolly good idea!! So whilst we set about training we need your money to support our charity , Clic Sargent in memory of my amazing brother Liam Fairhurst (www.liamfairhurst.com) who died from cancer last year aged 14. In Liam's life time he raised Over £320,000 for this charity and so the challenge is on! 

We are aiming to raise £20 for every mile we cycle I really miss my brother so please get donating.

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.


The ride will take place 29th of august to 5th of september.

To follow our progress in training and the ride or even to contact us please visit www.twyclebritain.co.uk


Thanks,


Callum (one of the riders) (aged 13)
