On Sunday 27th June 2021, we will depart Bristol Children’s Hospital bound for Little Harbour in St Austell, Cornwall. The ride involves over 150 miles of cycling and over 11,000 feet of ascent. This is going to be one hell of a challenge and something that we are both going to find really tough. But we’re riding for a great cause… to raise money for the amazing Children’s Hospice Southwest Little Harbour.
Little Harbour provides care and support to families living in Cornwall, who have children with life-limiting conditions. They provide specialist palliative care, respite for the whole family, a sibling service for brothers and sisters, emergency support, end of life care and a bereavement service for as long as is needed.
It was two years ago when Rich’s friends lost their eldest boy Joel before his 11th birthday. The care Little Harbour provided was amazing... nothing was ever too much trouble and this meant that the family could spend their last moments together free from the stresses of everyday life. And although no amount of kindness and support can ever ease the heartbreak of a family losing a child, the work of Little Harbour will always be remembered.
And with this in mind, Rich and Matt are going to cycle a bloody long way and raise over £3000 for the hospice. Thanks to Crowdfunder, every penny you donate will go direct to the charity and be put to good use caring for extremely poorly children and their families.
Thank you so much for supporting us.
Rich Jones and Matt Proom
