Pier Pressure 2016 - Cruising against Cancer

Team photo

Cancer has unfortunately touched our family 3 times in the last 10 years. I lost my mom to ovarian cancer in 2006 and Ruth lost her dad to throat cancer in 2010.

Then last year Ruth was diagnosed with breast cancer. Thanks to the fabulous staff at Dudley's Russells Hall hospital and the wonderful work and support of the charities Breast Cancer Care and Cancer Research Ruth's breast cancer has gone, her sanity is in tact (just) and she is well on the way back to better health.

To help give something back to these wonderful instiutions we have cunjured up a brilliant challenge. Welcome to Pier Pressure 2016.

We will be visiting 57 Victorian Promenade and Pleasure Piers around England, Scotland and Wales in 10 days. We will be doing this in 2 hand built beach buggies and covering nearly 2500 miles in total.

There is loads more detail at

We will be starting our Cruise Against Cancer on Friday 12th August 2016 in Oldbury Town Centre, West Midlands, and returning back there on Tuesday 23rd August after circumnavigating the British coastline in a clockwise direction.

Therefore could we please ask that you choose which ever charity means the most to you. However  we would also really like to share out any donations equally to all the charities if possible.

Remember: Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never share them with anyone or send you unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. They'll make sure Gift Aid (an additional 25%) is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer, too. That means more money goes to the charity, faster, with JustGiving.
