After the death of their four year old daughter some great friends set up a charity in her memory, another great friend is the CEO of the local hospice.

So as a keen cyclist who has undertaken a few cycling related challenges and has decided to join a group of friends doing LEJOG it is the ideal way to raise much needed money for two great small charities.

The two charities are:

The Piggles Trust has only just been registered as a charity so every penny counts. Caroline and Teddy started this charity after the death of their daughter with the aim of bridging some of the gaps that exists when a child needs long periods of hospital attention by creating more of a ‘home from home’ experience, specifically through education. Please watch the video which was originally presented at their first event.

The North Devon Hospice provides free care and support to patients and their families who are faced with the impact of a life-limited illness. They are there for all the family 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Their doctors, nurses, counsellors, therapists and volunteers offer what is needed at such a difficult time in the life of the patient and their family.

Event details


I’ll be starting at Lands End on the 20th May with a merry band of fellow loons with the aim of peddling 100 miles a day over 9 days.

I’m paying for all my costs so that 100% of the money goes directly to the charities. This is important for me to convey to you.

The mydonate page is a very effective way of making sure all the money raised goes straight to the charities please see Well done BT.

I want to raise as much money as possible for two very worthy charities which is why you have been directed here.

Now for your turn please give as generously as you can. Thank you.
