Do you want to join me in making a difference? I’m raising money in aid of Headway Blackpool Ltd and every donation will help.
As you may know I am very proud to be the Chair of the Board of Trustees at Headway Blackpool Wyre & Fylde. During September 2021, I will be joining a group of our Charity Members and our Trustees to (virtually) cycle the entire distance between John O’Groats in Scotland to Lands End in Cornwall and back again!
We are doing this to raise much needed funds and awareness for our Charity – which works super hard to improve the lives of people living with brain injuries (and their carers and families) in and around Blackpool.
A massive 1206 miles will be cycled with each Member and Trustee contributing to this huge distance!
To keep everyone safe – this cycle challenge will be done virtually. (We hope if the guidelines allow to cycle the last few miles together at the end of September at an accessible bike session in Blackpool; thanks to Wheels for All) This means each person taking part will clock their miles either in their own home on an exercise bike or on the roads near their home.
A group of 12 people are taking part which is made up of Members of the charity and it’s Trustees.
Everyone is cycling to raise much-needed funds for Headway Blackpool Wyre and Fylde, who support local people with brain injuries; their families and carers.
Can you help boost our efforts and make a small donation?
All help is gratefully received and will go direct to supply those in need.
Due to COVID-19 we have had to cancel all our vital face-to-face fundraising events during 2020 and 2021. These events raise much needed funds which allow us to continue to provide services to those with brain injuries, their carers and families in and around Blackpool.
By organising virtual events such as this cycle challenge we hope to raise funds while giving a positive focus for our Members and Trustees.
Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.
