Cycling the London Ride 100 for Two Great Charities

On the 31st July, I will be taking part in the Prudential Ride 100.  The ride, set up to celebrate the legacy of the 2012 Olympic Games, starts in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, then follows a 100-mile route on closed roads through the capital and into Surrey’s stunning countryside.
This year I’m riding in aid of two incredible charities; Brain Tumour Research, and the Brain Tumour Charity. Having suffered from a brain tumour myself I feel deeply indebted to both of these charities and have witnessed first-hand the incredible work they do. Brain Tumour Research strives to fund seven dedicated research centres while Brain Tumour Charity provides unparalleled support and information to anyone effected by a brain tumour. Both charities fund treatments and, essentially, raise awareness of the disease which now kills around 5,000 in the UK each year.
Any donations would be gratefully accepted, no matter how big or small – even a little can go a long way. I have set up a Virgin Money Giving page which can be found here:
