Cornwall Blood Bikes are always humbled by the support they receive from the public fundraising on our behalf.
As a charity made up entirely of volunteers none of us could do it without the support of the ones we love, in the form of wives, partners and family members.
In the last month we have been supported by Amy Williams who took on quite a challenge in order to raise money for Cornwall Blood Bikes.
Amy happens to be the daughter of one our East advanced fleet bike riders Alan Moss.
On the 1st September 2018 , Amy took part in an event called Man V Mountain, this is a 22 mile run from Caernarfon Castle to the summit of Snowdon, North Wales. The course involved running through Snowdonia National Park, climbing to the summit of Mount Snowdonia back down to Llanberis to complete a 1 kilometre vertical climb and an assault course through the lakes.
Amy funded the trip herself and decided to raise money for Cornwall Blood Bikes.
Amy quoted “ With my father Alan Moss is one of your fleet riders, so I know first-hand what a dedicated charity Cornwall Blood Bikes are.
To raise funds for this worthwhile charity I obtained 2 of your collection boxes and set up an online crowd-funding page. I located one of the boxes in my place of work and organised a cake Friday, where I asked people to donate cakes of all varieties and make donations to the collection box for a slice of cake, the other box was located at my local gym in Liskeard. I would like to thank Liskeard Lyons for their kind donation of £50.00 to support me in this challenge”
Amy raised a phenomenal £630.00 for CBB, which will go a long way to keeping our wheels turning across our County of Cornwall delivering to our hospitals and hospices.
Cornwall Blood Bikes Fundraising manager Ian Butler would like to thank Amy and her friends for taking on this inspirational challenge, it never fails to amaze the lengths people go to keep our wheels turning, and we could not do it without people like Amy & her friends”
