Kippers Bike Ride

23rd June 2014

Today I cauLands End DMGght up with Derrick from DMG Timber who cycling the length and breadth of the country in aid of Cancer Care and Treatment at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn.  Despite not being a keen cyclist to say the least he’s decided to embark on the 20 day ride in memory of his Mum.  His epic ride will see him cycle some 1150 miles and hopeful raise a further £5000.

I’ll  be checking in with him every so often to see how he’s progressing but in the meantime if you’d like to donate please visit the just giving site by clicking here and give what you can.

Good luck Kipper!
