Team story

[p]WE ARE BACK!!!!!!!!!! Well the usual suspects are plus a few more........ Roger, Dom, Tom, Mark, Luke, Mike are back as well as the addition of Buck! [/p][p]As many of you will have seen we did our three peaks challenge last year for Bowel Cancer where we raised over £1,500! This year we are going to try something a little bit more challenging, well actually a lot more challenging! [/p][p]We will be taking on the challenge of cycling to the end of the Somme and back to the lovely town of Petersfield, on the 4th July returning on the 9th. The ride will consist of 350 miles and will require some massive amounts of determination! [/p][p]So the main question must be well who are we raising money for? We are raising money for 'Fishing For Forces' which is a charity that we have all experienced their work first hand. The aim of the charity is to provide a days fishing for those returning from operational duty, whether it's part of a group day out at a local fishery or a day out with a local fisherman, easing their path back into a normal life, with lifetime support should they take up the sport. This charity is open to all servicemen and women from the Navy, Army and Air Force who have been affected both physically and mentally from conflict and individuals from WWII are still receiving the full support of the charity. [/p][p]We are aiming to raise at least £2,500 for this amazing charity and we feel that it ties in well with the 100th anniversary of The Battle of the Somme, where we will be laying a wreath at a memorial service half way through our expedition, to pay our respects. [/p][p]Please help us support this amazing charity and any donations will be an amazing help and will be gratefully received. [/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us 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. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
