Kidney Cancer Cycle Ride Reaches 20% of Target!

We have over 7 months to go and within just 2 months we’ve already reached 20% of our £20,000 target.  This is fantastic news!  We still have well over 20 people (closer to 30) who want to do the ride so I’m very encouraged that just 6 people have already managed to reach 20% …. Just think what we can achieve once everyone starts fundraising.

To that end I’d just like to remind those of you that have signed up that now is the time to get you deposits in and start your fundraising efforts.  The full instructions are available here in my previous blog

At the James Whale Fund we’re really keen to get the hotels and ferries booked in January so we can relax on that point and focus all our energies on fundraising. So please please if you want to come on the ride get your VirginGiving pages created and your deposits in now, and remember, we’re restricting this to just 20 people in year 1 … so don’t dawdle or you’ll miss the boat … literally!

Over the course of the next few weeks we’ll also be checking out the route. I’m debating cycling it, but I’ll need to see if I can get somebody willing to follow by car so I have some support …..  3 days in the same clothes …. not a pleasant thought, especially for those sitting near me on the train on the way back.

I’m still very excited about the whole thing and can’t wait to get going … real French bread, soft cheese and the odd bit of Red Wine of course …. Heaven!

Please sponsor me at either VirginGiving or JustGiving
