My story

[p]Russ Brown, Mitch Stafford and David Clelow from Staffordshire Fire & Rescue Service along with Neil Griffiths from Shropshire Fire & Rescue Service are planning to cycle from Uttoxeter fire station in Staffordshire to Combe Martin Fire Station in Devon, raising money for both Macmillan Cancer Support and the Fire Fighters Charity. [/p][p]This will be the furthest that anyone of us has ever ridden in a week never mind over two days and it could very well finish one or two of us off![/p][p]Our first day will be a casual 135 miles into a south westerly wind followed by a gruelling 105 miles over the heights of Exmoor on our second day. We will plan to stop halfway at Patchway Fire Station in Bristol in order to rest, refuel and re-focus, with a target of arriving in Combe Martin on the evening of the 27th of March 2018 in time to watch the England football match! [/p][p]In one way or another both the charities listed above have affected us all on a personal level and we would appreciate any financial donation to help us achieve our set target or even exceed it![/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
