Daniel is a member of the Edinburgh Portobello RC and asked for help and support in raising £10,000 towards the End Polio Now
campaign. His route was unusual in that, wherever possible, he used
the designated cycle paths and routes throughout the country.
Lands End early morning on 6th June, stopped at St. Ives for
then on to Playing Place where
Club organised a lunch break
at the Kea Community Centre from 11.00am to 2.00pm. Daniel arrived exactly as planned at 12.30pm and left for Camelford at about 13.30.
Daniel's aim, to complete the jouney in 13 days, was a considerable challenge by undertaking
the cycle ride using routes which mean extra miles. He and his wife (driving the support car) and the President and Secretary of the Portobello Rotary Club seemed very appreciative of the welcome they were given.
He has now written to say "Thank you for the very generous donation [of £100] from RC Truro Boscawen. Please extend
our gratitude to all members.
"I finally completed the cycle on
Saturday and everything went very well. It will take me a while to get a final
figure coming from our fundraising. Not only cheques are still coming through,
but our club is also planning further fundraising activities during the summer.
At the moment however we want to thank you once more for your generous
"We will be in touch as soon as we can
to give you a final figure as well as pictures, etc. that you can use to
advertise your support to us.
