Charity bike ride

On the 11th September me and Jo will be trying to cycle the width of England, going from east to west coast to coast. We are going from Whitehaven to Sunderland in 3 days, while I think this will be a challenge it is even more so for Jo as she actually hates cycling!!!!! We decided to do this as a bit of fun but also we realised we could raise some money for a good cause. At the age of 3 Jo’s niece “Bethany” was diagnosed out of the blue with type 1 diabetes, this means that she has to regularly monitor her blood as well as have several injections of insulin a day. So we are hoping to try and raise as much as we can for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), who are trying to find a cure for this illness.
So please donate any amount of money you can spare no matter how small or big!!!!

Jo has set up a Just Giving website if you want to donate this way or you can just give the money directly to me and I will pay it into the site.

We will be posting pictures on our Facebook pages so you can see that we complete the ride.
