Fortitude Freewheelers

29th August 2018

After some gentle persuasion from me, Team Fortitude will be dusting off their bikes (or borrowing someone’s!), donning their ill-fitting lycra and embarking on a charity bike ride around Northamptonshire to raise funds for the Cynthia Spencer hospice.

We’ll spare you the photos of us in that lycra (for now); this is how we’d like to think we will look!

So why are we supporting this event?

When I was 10 years old my Nan was diagnosed with a brain tumour, aged 56. Unfortunately there was no cure but I will always remember the way the Cynthia Spencer hospice and its volunteers cared so brilliantly for her in her last few weeks as well as the support they provided to our family at such a difficult time.

Many members of the Fortitude team have also had personal experience of the brilliant work that such hospices do.

To continue providing the ongoing support to those that need it most, hospices such as Cynthia Spencer rely on donations, so any contribution you can make towards our fundraising efforts, no matter how small, would be greatly appreciated!  You can support us by visiting our JustGiving page.

With our thanks

Mark & Team Fortitude
