Team Oughton's cycle challenge

My page:

Hi, thanks for visiting our page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to Dove Cottage.

In June this year cycling from nottingham to Vienna to raise funds for Dove Cottage Day Hospice, situated in the Vale of Bevoir'. The cottage provide palliative care for the terminally ill and rely almost totally on donations. I am truly honoured to be cycling on behalf of this amazing charity, any donation, no matter how small will be greatly appreciated.

This trip is 100% self funded and ALL funds raised will be donated to the Cottage charity.

Well we did it, we completed our journey of over 1100 miles on a bike in just under 14 days. It rained much of the way, but luck was on our side and we arrived in Vienna in time to see the sun shine again. Please if you can, circulate via facebook, Twitter or by any other means to help support this fantastic cause, we would be most grateful. Our virgin money giving account will be open until the end of July.

Why not visit the tearoom at stathern, it is well worth a visit. which also houses a super shop. Take a look online. 

thank you.   Lynda xx
