My Story

Thank you for visiting my page. On September 5th I will be attempting a great challenge: cycle 627kms/392miles, in 5 days, from Paris to Bordeaux. I am 65 and you might wonder why I would do such a thing? Cycle for hours on end, get to the hotel, stretch, shower, eat, collapse and then get back on the saddle in the morning, for another 80miles and so on, for 5 days!! I’m doing it because I want to ask you to support Velindre, the Hospital of Hope in Cardiff 60 of us will be riding, cyclists of all abilities, unified by the same passion: the desire to do our part to fight cancer because so many are touched by this dreadful disease. Velindre has been providing specialist treatment and supportive care to cancer patients and families for over 65 years. Money raised for Velindre Charity helps fund ground breaking research and clinical trials, cutting edge treatments, specialist nurses, support services, therapies, equipment and so much more which are above those provided by the NHS so donations really do have a significant impact on patients and their families. Your donation will allow Velindre to continue to provide Hope for the future. This challenge will be very difficult, tiring and push many of us to our limits but we are all committed to achieve this task and will celebrate our achievement when we get to Bordeaux, full of gratitude for your support and feeling great that we played our part in this fight. We are hoping to raise £250,000. Thank you for your help and support, from the bottom of my heart.
