About

I Know, I know, …..
There is always so much going on, and, always so many very good causes to support. But, like most people, you do become very affected and attached by events close to home and especially where family and friends are involved.
Very sadly I lost my beloved brother Ian to cancer earlier this year. A great person, inspiring and much loved and missed. The illness can be treated and managed, that we all know, and he acknowledged that there were always better potential outcomes and therefore to retain hope, especially for others. For him, earlier diagnosis could have undoubtedly helped. For him as well, the greatest issue was the care that he received, unbelievably ‘good’, especially when the going got tough. I also have a very close wonderful friend, in the industry, who is also battling hard with the illness. He is a great tribute of courage and hope and has not lost his wonderful sense of humour. Similarly, he has shared that the greatest issues are that of diagnostics and out of hospital home care.
Thank you dear friends and colleagues. Your support is greatly appreciated – morally and financially ! Lets help together.
Sincerest thanks,
Peter

Event details

Cycling John O'Groats to Lands End, unsupported.

With this is mind, I have taken up the rather silly challenge of cycling the mere distance of 1000+ miles, over the last two weeks of June, from John O’Groats to Lands End the scenic route with a couple of fruitcase friends, against the prevailing winds and unsupported [ carrying all our own necessary equipment and gear ]. Other than Juggling and doing other Circus tricks as we go, I’m not sure how we could make it much more challenging [ suggestions not necessary – thanks ! ].
In memory to Ian, but more importantly to give hope to others, I have agreed to raise funds for Macmillan [ such a wonderful organisation and caring beautiful people ] and also  the Paul Strickland Scanner Centre based at Mount Vernon London, key to helping with early and on-going diagnostics.
If through my silliness and exertions and your generosity, we can help just ‘One’ person, then that by itself would be a marvellous effort and make the adventure worthwhile. Clearly, it would be great to help as many as possible, as we never know when we ourselves may need such services.
Thank you kindly.
Peter
