Pedal Power to Save Lives

Please help Head of History of Art Alice Lindsay, hit her target for Cancer Research UK as she takes part in Ride London next week in memory of a beloved aunt who died last year.

Miss Lindsay says: “On 26th May, I’ll be attempting to cycle just over 100 miles to raise money for Cancer Research UK. Up until recently when my training officially started, my experience of riding a bike extended to the odd commute and the occasional lap around Richmond Park, so this will be quite the test!”

 She adds: “In June of last year, my brave and wonderful aunt died of cancer. She was such a bright light, and an enormously important presence in my life. Her death has left a gaping hole in the worlds of all those that knew and loved her.

"Having set out with an ambitious target of £10,000, I am now pedalling my way towards £25,000, and I would be eternally grateful for any donation to help me reach this amount. My aim is to help Cancer Research UK in beating cancer through the provision of funding for scientists, doctors and nurses.

“As so many of you will know first hand, cancer is a relentless and cruel disease which continues to devastate so many lives, and whilst there has been much progress made, there is clearly so much more to do. With your kind generosity, I hope to contribute to this invaluable cause in memory of my aunt and so many others taken from us by cancer.”
