Leamington mums who lost friends to cancer and MS cycling from Lands End to John O'Groats

Ian Hughes 15th Jul, 2018

THREE Leamington mums who have lost friends and family to cancer and MS will be cycling from Land’s End to John O’Groats to help others affected by the diseases.

Sarah Simon, Tina Strath and Pip Spark will be joining 700 other cyclists for the nine day 969 mile Deloitte Ride Across Britain challenge in September.

The trio have already raised just over half their £6,600 target, thanks to a black tie ball at Leamington Real Tennis Club, a charity curry and quiz night and donations.

The latest financial boost is a contribution form Leamington estate agency ehB Residential, whose MD Edward Bromwich has himself been affected by cancer.

This is Sarah’s second major fundraising activity for Macmillan. She had her head shaved two years ago to raise £3,500 for the charity after her mum was diagnosed with terminal cancer.

Pip lost her best friend and a niece, both of whom had young children, to cancer, and Tina’s father died from MS and never knew his granddaughter.

Further donations to Macmillan Cancer Support and the MS Society can be made by via Tina, Pip and Sarah’s charity donation pages.
