Two Great Causes: Cycling for Charity…

June 25, 2011

Whilst thoughts might be drifting towards this year’s Tour de France (or indeed the cycling events at London 2012), I thought I’d take this opportunity to draw your attention to two cycling-based charity causes this summer.

Firstly, my good friend George Walker is raising money for Macmillan and the great work that they do.

He is cycling the challenging Lands End to John O’Groats this summer – over one thousand miles in fifteen days – and would appreciate all and any sponsorship you had to offer.

Macmillan is a cracking cause, so should you wish to find out more and/or sponsor George then please follow this link:

Secondly, a group of friends of a friend (if you follow…) are cycling from Bristol to Barcelona, spookily also a distance of around 1000 miles. Their website (featuring a blog and updates etc) can be found via this link http://www.bristoltobarcelona.co.uk/ .

They are raising money for Apêl Elain, a year long fundraising appeal taking place throughout 2011 to raise money for each of the following 4 charities: Leon Heart Fund, Ronald McDonald House Bristol, Wales Air Ambulance, and Wallace and Gromit’s Grand Appeal. A fine effort for several worthy causes.

For their main donation page please follow this link:

Thanks for taking the time to read these appeals guys. As stated previously, all and any contributions help no matter how seemingly insignificant, so many thanks from those involved should you donate. These are some very worthy causes…

All the best…
