We were working with CBRE at the time in the DVLA in Swansea, where they organised the event in Memory of Thomas Hopkins.
The money raised is being donated to the Lymphoma Leukaemia Myeloma Fund (Wales) who cared for Thomas during his battle with Cancer.
A total of £8995.31 was raised.
Menna Jackson, Secretary of Lymphoma Leukaemia Myeloma Fund (Wales) wrote:
“I am writing on behalf of Lymphoma Leukaemia Myeloma Fund (Wales) to acknowledge receipt of two cheques valued £6175.00 and £500.00.
In addition, £2220.24 was raised on the LLMF Charities trust web page.
This gives a total amount of £8995.31 raised in memory of Thomas Hopkins when you and 14 other bike riders cycles from Bude In Cornwall to
Singleton Hospital in Swansea.
The total mileage was 240 over 3 days. What a tremendous achievement!
This is the third time you have all supported LLMF and we really do appreciate what you do for the charity.
At the moment LLMF is funding twelve new oncology chairs in the day treatment rooms and tablets for each chair for the nurses to monitor each patient.
This will save time going back and forth to the main computer for information.
The community Nursing Project is in its third year and has been very successful. LLMF funds the project clerk and two specialist nurses.
Patients who have difficulty getting into hospital are treated at home and monitored by telephone.
I would like to recognise the following firms who sponsored your team.
