London to Brighton Charity Bike Ride….in Dorset, London & Bristol
It’s amazing what you’ll do for a good time when you’ve been in lock down! One of our Board members, Ella, signed up to the Skyline London to Brighton ride on Sunday, 13th September 2020. Board members Richard, Hannah, Rhonda and Wayne signed up…..before for the ride was then postponed until 2021 due to Covid-19.
The five of us convinced 13 others to join in and ride 55 miles on the 13th September in Dorset, Bristol and London and we raised £5,086. The riders were awesome, the donations were amazing and massively appreciated. The support we had to make it happen was immense (thank you to Rich, Tracy, Jane and Gerry for hosting folk and to Cath and Tim who made sure we all had somewhere to sit when turned up for lunch at the pub!).
Casey Purdie put pedal to the metal from Lands End to John o’Groats
Casey had decided to cycle the mammoth 1,004 miles from Lands End to John O’Groats in September and then COVID 19 put pay to being able to physically do the ride. Not to be put off, Casey took on the legendary challenge closer to home and cycled the full Lands End to John o’Groats distance closer to home in 11 days in all types of weather , up a shed load of hills and when the weather was too rubbish, took to the turbo trainer. What an awesome effort!!!
She raised more than £1,800 for the Foundation, what a superstar.
Hannah and Sophie Edwards ran the Bath Half Marathon and raised an amazing £1,788. Thank you so much.

Sara Lee ran the Nottingham Half Marathon
Sara pounded the pavements in the Nottingham Half Marathon on 29th September for TYMF. She’s achieved her target of raising £500 and we’re so grateful to her – and to everyone who sponsored her! 2:35 was no mean feat!!! Thank you so very much Sara!!
Tracy Cox Head Shave
Tracy raised an amazing £1,385. She wanted to do something to contribute a positive difference for sometime knowing that it would need to be something drastic. She didn’t want to ask for money to pound the pavement running, a bake sale or even a sponsored silence – she shaved her head instead. What a superstar.

Rob Atkins braved the elements (and there were LOADS of elements) and faced the cold to walk the Pennine Way in June. He hiked the 439km over 14 days and raised a whopping £5,319 for us. Legend.
