[p][b]For our 2020 fundraiser, we're cycling from Whitehaven to Sunderland! [/b][/p][p]A whopping 135 miles in just 2 days! The route is really hilly so people usually take 3-5 days to complete it, but we've decided to push ourselves by doing it in only 2... Hopefully we don't regret it...[/p][p][i]Every penny we raise will be used to support local people with chronic mental and physical health issues.[/i][/p][p][b]Why are we doing it?[/b][/p][p]The money will enable our therapists to visit local charities and organisations (such as emergency refuges, care homes and community projects) and deliver therapeutic massage to people who are experiencing chronic pain, debilitating mental health issues or are in crisis. They are people who cannot get to our space in Leeds City Centre, and do not have access to this kind of support otherwise.[/p][p]The therapists will also be able to teach simple massage techniques to the staff and volunteers who keep these invaluable organisations going. These techniques stimulate relaxation and improve mood – helping the staff to continue sharing the power of human touch.[/p][p]Our aim is to offer this service with no cost to the organisations – who are already doing amazing work in supporting local people.[/p][p][br][/p]
