CitroJim's Amsterdam Charity Bike Ride...

Post by CitroJim »

I'm cycling all the way from Milton Keynes to Amsterdam in June to raise money for Willen Hospice...
Willen Hospice
Willen Hospice
This is our local Hospice that supports all end of life care in MK and receives only a quarter of its funding from the NHS :(

It gets all the rest from charitable donations and various fundraising events throughout the year; it needs to raise £7 every minute of every day to keep going.

I do lots for Willen Hospice as it's local to me and chances are I'll end up there sooner or later... I mainly take part in running events and bike rides in the local area.

I now have a JustGiving page up to raise some sponsorship for this very special bike ride - my very first overseas one...

I'm hoping to raise £1200 and every little will help!

Many thanks for any donations, they are very much appreciated both by me and the Hospice :D

Not long now until I depart on this trip of a lifetime :D

Last week we had our final briefing and got our special cycling jerseys 8-)

Here am I modelling mine just before a club ride this morning...

There is still time to sponsor me and donate to Willen Hospice by visiting my JustGiving page ;)

All donations gratefully received! Thanks :)

After the ride I'll be visiting a certain well-known forum member who lives in France for part of the year... Looking forward to that :)
