THANKYOU FOR COAST TO COAST RIDE SUP­PORT MIKE TAY­LOR Che­sham

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

I’D like to thank, via the Bucks Ex­am­iner, all those kind peo­ple who spon­sored me for over £2,000 for Marie Curie nurses

on the “coast-to-coast” chal­lenge bike ride.

De­spite a bit of rain on the first and third day we all man­aged to ride 158 miles, climb­ing 11,000 feet and do­ing a fair bit off road.

It was tough, es­pe­cially when the midges got so thick that each breath caught half a dozen.

We had a most mov­ing talk from a lo­cal Marie Curie nurse at the half­way point – as we scoffed her home made cream cakes.

We learned how Marie Curie nurses care for fam­i­lies with ter­mi­nal ill­ness in all weath­ers 24/7, tak­ing the stress and strain away from the fam­ily mem­bers so they can rest and re­gain their en­er­gies.

We were 50 in all, and we raised enough to fund a Marie Curie nurse for a year.

Thank you all for your gen­er­ous con­tri­bu­tions.
