Riding back to Julie's beach

My amazing, beautiful, & courageous wife, Julie Mountford, died in March 2015, aged 53, in Wirral Hospice St John's & I created The Julie Mountford Dawson Foundation to honour her by raising funds for causes close to Julie’s heart. This page is about a fundraising event that will see me ride from Wirral Hospice, to a town called Benicàssim, in Spain.

Benicassim is where Julie last walked on sand & last swim in the sea. I intend to ride from Wirral to Portsmouth, then Santander to Benicàssim. I’d probably have done this regardless of charitable intentions; it has provided a focus during dark times. But it will hopefully help to keep Julie’s memory alive. And if I can raise funds to help people living with cancer (the focus of our foundation), that can only be a good thing. So if you would like to sponsor my ride and make a donation to Julie’s foundation, no matter how small, I would be extremely grateful.

UPDATE: The original target we set has been reached and the foundation will be passing this £1000 to Wirral Hospice. Any more money raised will be divided equally between the hospice, Maggie’s Centre at Clatterbridge, Wirral Holistic Care Services & 2 national charities - MacMillan Cancer Support and CANCERactive - in recognition of the fact that donations have been made by people from all over the country.
