Charity Bike Ride: John o'Groats to Land's End in 9 days!

17 July 2020

Four friends will be heading off on Saturday 18th July, on a 900+ mile journey all in aid of Cancer Research UK...

The cyclists, Lawrence Benson, Tom Whittingham, Dale Farmiloe and Andy Jones will be aiming to complete the challenge in just 9 days.

The cause and motivation for this massive test stems from the passing of Lawrence's mother, Wendy Reich, who sadly passed away at the end of 2019 due to cancer, prompting Lawrence to honour the memory of his mum by pushing himself to the limits, through this challenge for an amazing cause, Cancer Research UK.

Taken from the JustGiving page for the challenge, Lawrence wrote: "Cancer almost inevitably comes to us all at some stage and in some way. I have not only lost my mum to this cruel disease, but I have lost my Uncle Roger and my Grandma to it too.

"Dale lost his Dad to cancer at a young age and last year Andy lost his father-in-law. I have relatives and friends currently under-going treatment, and I’m sure that we can all relate. We will be riding for them all."

To donate, please visit the JustGiving page here, with the lads setting off on Saturday 18th July, we at Bristol Rovers Football Club wish them all the best for the journey.
