Saddle up in aid of your local hospice
Eden Valley Hospice
A local hospice is encouraging fundraisers to get in the saddle and cycle to support the care they provide children and young adults with life limiting illnesses.
For the very first time, Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw, Cumbria’s Children’s Hospice have received places for 2 memorable cycling challenges – The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 (Sunday 4 August) and The London to Paris Cycle (Wednesday 25 to Sunday 29 September).
The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 will allow you to follow in the tyre tracks of some of cycling’s most famous personalities. Celebrating the legacy for cycling created by London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the route starts from the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park then follows a 100 mile route on closed roads through the capital and into Surrey’s stunning countryside.
The Carlisle based charity have received 2 places for the 2019 event which will finish on The Mall in central London.
A month later a team of 10 Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw fundraisers will head to London again for the start of a 4 day, 300+ mile cycling challenge. The hospice fundraisers will join hundreds of others, each supporting a charity close to their hearts.
The exciting ride will take fundraisers from London through beautiful English villages and into the stunning countryside of rural France, before reaching Paris and ending under the Eiffel Tower.
Sam Johnston, Community and Events Fundraiser at Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw said: “We are delighted our supporters have the chance to take part in these amazing challenges. They are new events for the hospice and we are really excited about them. The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 and the London to Paris cycle are popular events, so now is the best time to get in touch and book yourself onto the events before it is too late!”
