We are going to achieve so much more than our Cycle 2 Austria trip. Not only do we want to raise money for 3 charities but we want to use the trip to inspire a range of people form school children to adults who, with some motivation, will go out and help raise money for a charity close to their own hearts.
We will be raising money for:-
R4FT - Relief 4 Families in Trauma
R4ft offers resources to families caring for children who have experienced neglect, abuse and/or domestic violence so that they can have the specialist therapeutic support they need.
This can be Music, Art or Play therapies which include parents and children together. When combined with specialist support for school staff and the extended family network, these programmes can bring fun back into stressed families.
Traumatised children need security and stability before they can begin to recover from the effects of early trauma. Parents and guardians need a support network around them who understand how trauma can send ripples of stress th rough families and communities.
CRY - Cardiac Risk in the Young
CRY was founded in 1995 to raise awareness of conditions that can lead to young sudden cardiac death (YSCD); sudden death syndrome (SDS); SADS
We lost our good friend Alex Watley to Sudden Adult Death Syndrome. This adventure and challenge is memory of him.
Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice
Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice is the only adult Hospice caring for terminally ill people and their families across West Surrey and North East Hampshire, both at the Hospice and in the community.
For many patients, when a cure is not possible, hospice care offers a more dignified and comfortable alternative to spending time in the impersonal and noisy environment of a hospital. Our care helps patients manage pain and improves the quality of life for both the patient and their family.
Seeking care through our Hospice isn’t about giving up hope or hastening death, but rather a way to get the most appropriate care in the last phase of life…because every day is precious.
Phyliss Tuckwell Hospice provided outstanding care to a gentleman who was a friend and inspiration to many of the people involved in Cycle2Austria and Cycle2Sweden.
