My story

[p] I have entered this year's [b]Master Cutler's Challenge[/b] and will be cycling from Land's End to John o' Groats in May. My wife Jude will start at Land's End and leave me in Manchester to return to work at Broom Lane Medical Centre. I will continue North to complete the 1200 mile journey. The Master Cutler's Challenge is aiming to raise £250K with over 90 teams doing different events. The money will support the community work and Hospice at Home teams from [b]Rotherham Hospice[/b] and [b]St Luke's Hospice[/b], Sheffield. These teams enable people to receive wonderful End of Life Care in their own homes surrounded by their family and friends.[/p][p]I worked at Rotherham Hospice from 1997 to 2010, developing skills and experience which I was able to use for the benefit of my own patients and pass onto colleagues in my practice. I think working in Palliative and End of Life Care was one of the most rewarding aspects of my career in medicine. Since 2015 I have been a trustee at Rotherham Hospice which is a voluntary unpaid post.[/p][p]I have personally witnessed the incredible holistic and compassionate care provided by staff at Rotherham Hospice. My older sister was looked after by the Hospice at Home team when she was dying of pancreatic cancer and a younger sister who has Multiple System Atrophy is currently being supported by the Day Unit.[/p][p]Both Hospices have to raise more than half their running costs from charity and in Rotherham's case this is almost £60,000 each week or over £3 million annually. All the money I raise will go to charity. Please be as generous as possible with your donation.[/p][p]Thank you.[/p][p]Thanks to all my supporters, almost £6000 raised so far. We have cycled through hilly Cornwall and Devon and have reached Somerset. 220 miles of beautiful scenery and very quiet roads since leaving Land’s End.[/p][p]I was unfortunate to have my bicycle and all my gear stolen in Bristol. However within 3 hours I was back on schedule with a new bike and some replacement equipment. We had a wet few days cycling through the Midlands and have just reached the halfway point in Clitheroe North Lancashire with 600miles completed. Ahead is the spectacular scenery of the Forest of Bowland, Cumbria and the Scottish Borders.[/p][p]16.5.2019 - had a 95 mile ride to Glasgow yesterday where I met my son who is joining me for the journey to John o’Groats. Some hard hills ahead but the legs are feeling remarkably good.[/p][p]17.5.2019- cycled through the beautiful Trossacks national park yesterday and spent the night at Kenmore which is at the northern end of Loch Tay. 92 miles on mixed surfaces which was hard going. 952 miles done and about 250 to JOG.[/p][p]20.5.2019 - yesterday we covered 96 miles from Inverness to Borgie on the North coast of Scotland. It was spectacular travelling through such a remote and desolate landscape. We stopped for lunch at the Crask Inn, reputedly the remotest pub in Britain. Just 60 to reach JOG and the end of my journey.[/p][p]Arrived in John o’ Groats this afternoon after cycling 1230 miles from Land’s End. Thanks to everyone who has supported this challenge.[/p]
