Lands End to John O’Groats ERGO Challenge for Manorlands Hospice

The Challenge:  To ride 1400km (the distance of Lands End to John O Groats) in 11 hours on 4 ERGO bikes at Fitness First, Keighley on Saturday 8th May 2010.

Why?  To raise as much money as possible for Manorlands Hospice.  Our initial target is £1400 (£1 per kilometre), but the more the better, so please don’t hold back, ask everyone you know to sponsor you for as much as possible.

Who is doing it:  Tim, David, Matt, Sara and as many others as we can rope in to help us to:

a)    ride the distance (it’s a very long way)

b)    raise as much money as possible to help us meet our target

Why Manorlands Hospice?  From mine and David’s point of view its very personal as I am sure many of you are aware, but places like Manorlands Hospice rely very heavily on charity in order to provide the palliative care that is so desperately needed for so many people within our community.
