John Eastwood hospice cared for Dad in his last few weeks with us. They also have cared for me, my brother and my Mum in an indirect way. The hospice relies 100% on donations and yet it is such an important piece of our healthcare in the UK. Please give generously to continue the help and support they offer to patients and their families throughout very difficult times.

Dad rode the Devon Coast to Coast a few years ago and asked if I wanted to do it with him. I’m overweight, unfit, have a dodgy knee and a cheap bike that gathers dust. I politely declined. Today (22nd August 2018) I inherited Dad’s bike and I am going to ride that coast to coast on his bike to raise money for John Eastwood hospice in March 2019. But I’m also going to make sure that I continue to have adventures on Dad’s bike far beyond this ride, because he would have enjoyed, and so will I.
