Accordionists – Charity Cycle Ride in memory of the late Ron Beecham.

Dear friends and family,

It’s been 3 years since Lloyd and I cycled from London to Paris in memory of our Dad.

We felt that to earn some more charitable pennies this year we would raise the stakes a bit. 
So, this summer, we, along with 2 friends, Ian Hanley and Andy Sims, are going to attempt to ride the length and breadth of the country in aid of the Everyman Campaign to stamp out male cancer. 

One man dies every hour from prostate cancer in the UK and testicular cancer is now the most common cancer in men between the ages of 15-44. Despite these alarming figures, awareness among men remains low and research in this area is severely under-funded. Everyman works to raise awareness and fund research into testicular and prostate cancer. 
In May, we will be cycling from Lowestoft (the UK’s most easterly point) to St David’s in Wales – the widest part of the UK. The aim is to complete the ride in four days, covering a total of 400 miles. However, the challenge doesn’t end there. 

Five weeks later, we will take on the legendary Land’s End to John O’Groats cycle in eleven days, a ride totalling approx 1000 miles. We will be completing the two rides with little more than a van and a driver coming along for moral support. 

We are looking to raise as much money as possible for a charity that is close to all of our hearts for intensely personal reasons.

Dear Accordion Friends,

It has been 3 years since my sons Craig and Lloyd cycled from London to Paris in memory of their Dad – Ron Beecham and raised money for the charity EVERYMAN CANCER.
Now they are at it again!

"Coast to Coast" on the 28th May 2011 they will leave Lowestoft (The UK’s most Easterly point) and 5 days later on the 1st June (hopefully)
 they will arrive in St.David’s Bay in Wales (the widest part of the UK) – cycling some 400 miles.

"South to North" on the 7th July 2011 they will leave Land’s End and cycle the 1000 miles to John O’Groats, arriving some 11 days later.

They will complete the 2 rides with little more than a driver and a van carrying spares for their bikes and a change of clothes. 
They are again riding in memory of their Dad who died in 2006 of Cancer and are looking to raise as much money as possible for a charity that is close to their hearts for intensely personal reasons.
The charity "Everyman Cancer" aims to stamp out male cancer. One man dies every hour from prostate cancer in the UK and testicular cancer is now the most common cancer in men between the ages of 15-44.
Despite these alarming figures, awareness among men remains low and research in this area is severley  under-funded. "Everyman" works to raise awareness and fund research into testicular and prostate cancer.

If you would like to sponsor Craig & Lloyd, please visit http://www.justgiving.com/foursorecorners where you can leave a donation and a message. 

Alternatively, if you would like to send or give me a cheque or cash, I will see that it is put on the website with your message.

Many Thanks,
