'Big C Big Cycle' As Local Woman Takes On Challenge
From Edinburgh to London for cancer research and Maggies Centres
Local resident Mandy Riches is embarking on what she described as "a crazy scary challenge" to raise money for Maggies Centres and Cancer Research UK.
She intends cycling from Edinburgh Maggies Centre to London Maggies Centre which will take her up hill and down dale over 460 odd miles in five days in July this year.
However, now she feels fitter and healthier and is taking on the challenge to raise £5,000 for Maggies Centres and Cancer Research UK.
"I feel incredibly lucky, and I am very grateful for the support of my family and friends, the wonderful team and people I have met at the Maggies Cancer Centre in London, and the sheer amount of research that is undertaken to beat this disease that touches so many people.
"Maggie's was there for me and I want to help make sure they can continue to support others that need their services and a place just to be at this time.
