Written by HV Wooding on 24th September 2015



As you are aware HV Wooding decided to create a 5 strong team who have now cycled from Hythe Kent, to Hythe Hampshire and back again in just 3 days, with the ride finishing at HV Wooding.

Our team of five consisted of John Osborne, Andy Noonan, Paul Allen, Luke Hadley-Smith and Joe Long who cycled 300Miles/ 450Kilometres between the 18th – 20th of September 2015.

Our route was as follows:

Day 1 - HV Wooding, Hythe Kent to Bognor Regis

Day 2 - Bognor Regis to Hythe Hampshire then ending the day in Arundel

Day 3 - Arundel to HV Wooding Hythe Kent.

As part of our efforts to raise funds for this noble cause we have held various fundraising events around the local area…. We have had a stall at Hythe Green boot fair and raised £133.17, Static cycled and collected funds on Folkestone high street resulting in £458.39 being raised, we held a quiz night on the 13th August and raised £318 we raised £246.70 at the Venetian Fete on the 19th August and collected an impressive £303.18 on Hythe high street on the 29thAugust. We were also lucky enough to appear on Academy FM with the one and only Kevin Daly live on the Sports Ferret slot between 10 and 11am on the 12th September. 

Our Chosen Charities are Cancer Research and The Chartwell Cancer Trust.

We have chosen two charities who we raised funds for. The first being The Chartwell cancer trust, this is the specialist NHS Cancer and Leukaemia Treatment Unit in the Princess Royal University Hospital. It provides patients with a comfortable environment in which to receive care from the professional, multi-disciplined team who address the symptom control and pain relief. We have also chosen the world’s leading charity Cancer research dedicated to beating cancer through research. They have saved millions of lives by discovering new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, and survival has doubled over the last 40 years. For the above reasons and many more we have chosen the above charities and are proud to be part of such a prestigious opportunity
