This summer I began working with the lovely team at Citizen's Advice Gateshead, who offer an incredible range of literally life-changing services to thousands of people in serious hardship.

As well as being lovely, the CAG team are also very persuasive, and consequently I am joining them on a 3-day, 115 mile cycling fundraiser along route 72, or Hadrian's Way, which runs from Silloth in Cumbria to Gateshead.


Funds raised will go towards services that help North East children and their families through the uncertainty – and often financial hardship – that arises from serious and unexpected illnesses such as cancer and dementia, so they can get back to focusing on their loved ones.

I'm a little late to the party and definitely not a serious cyclist (as the pic illustrates) - so this ride is sure to be a challenge! On behalf of everyone on the cycle team, thank you SO much for any donations you can offer towards these vital services.
