Ride for Life launched to support nook appeal and Quidenham hospice

Feb 24, 2015
Ride for Life returns for the 22nd time this summer in a brand new location. EACH’s largest and longest-running fundraising event will take place on Sunday 14th June where cyclists and walkers are being encouraged to dust off their saddles and clean up their walking boots with new routes in aid of the nook appeal and the charity’s existing hospice in Quidenham.

Participants will be able to take part in 3, 6 or 12 mile forest walks, 5,10 or 25 mile off-road cycle rides and 16 or 38 mile on-road cycle rides in the new location of Mayday in Thetford Forest.

The 5 mile off-road cycle ride and the 12 mile walk will raise funds for the nook appeal, while funds raised from the other events will support the charity’s Quidenham hospice and current services in Norfolk. 

There will be stalls, activities, live music and well-earned refreshments available;
making it a great day out for all. Green Ventures Bikes in Brunel Way, which is a social enterprise run by Keystone Development Trust, will be at the event to offer cycle repairs and adjustments and will be asking for donations to EACH. They will also be selling bike accessories and parts. 

Registration will open later this month but you can register your interest now.

  • I didn’t realise hope was a gift until I became a mum. My little boy taught me many things and that was one of them Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • I can’t imagine what it would have been like. Nobody should have to, every family should be offered the support we were, and are still getting Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • Children like Lucy don’t get the opportunity to go to sleepovers or to their friends for tea, so the interaction she has at the hospice is priceless. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • Renee loves going to The Treehouse, but it’s great that care staff are also able to visit us at home too. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • The play specialists are excellent and I also get inspiration from the activities they organise. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • We arrived at the hospice feeling scared and alone. We had so many questions – they answered them all and more. Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • I really love going to the hospice. I’ve made friends there and get to do loads of fun stuff. Renee
  • EACH has helped us keep Stanley’s memory alive. And allows us to look to the future Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • It’s been a great opportunity to meet other parents in a similar situation, something that doesn't really happen anywhere else. Helen, William’s mum
  • We are also supported by the 24/7 True Colours nurses and it’s so reassuring knowing we can call on them whenever we need support or advice Helen, William’s mum
  • EACH helped us with coping mechanisms and special ways of remembering Stanley. Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • EACH helps us to create lovely memories and has played an important part in all of our lives, not just Lucy’s. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • When we first heard about the hospice we were apprehensive because we didn’t know what to expect. When we got there we realised it was a lovely place where Renee would be well looked after, and we would be able to have a much-needed break. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • EACH supports families when they’re at their absolute lowest, helping them to come to terms with their child’s illness, losing them and beyond Brad, Stanley's Dad
