We pioneer life-saving cancer research to help us beat cancer


My Dad was diagnosed with cancer in November 2023 and sadly he passed away in January 2024.

My Dad was my best friend, always there for me, he would help anyone and so generous with his love and kindness. He had a wonderful sense of humour and not a day goes by when I don't miss his lovely smile and infectious laugh. I miss him so much, I just wish he could have had more advanced treatment and stayed with us longer.

There are so many organisations that helped my Dad and our family but we chose Cancer Research as this is the only way to truly beat this terrible disease.

There have been so many developments in the treatment of cancer and we would like to help to boost funding for research to help find preventative measures and improvements in treatments.

On 26 May, Nigel, is cycling the RideLondon-Essex 100 and is hoping to raise £500 with your help.

The Ford RideLondon-Essex challenge is the UK’s largest closed-road mass participation cycling event, combining the unique thrill of cycling on traffic-free roads in the centre of London, heading out into Essex’s picturesque countryside.

The race begins in the city centre at Victoria Embankment, along past Olympic Park and through the London boroughs of Westminster, the City of London, Tower Hamlets, then into Essex via Epping Forest. Then heading back to the capital finishing at Tower Bridge. Nigel is hoping to complete the challenge within 7 hours!

I won't be cycling but I will be there with Nigel on the day to wave him off and be at the finish line waiting for him. The 100 mile challenge isn't for the feint hearted and has meant much training for Nigel over the last few months.

Please just donate what you can, every £1 really will make a huge difference and change peoples lives in the future.
