THANKYOU FOR COAST TO COAST RIDE SUPPORT MIKE TAYLOR Chesham
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.
