Andrew and his brother, Rob, will be completing a coast to coast 620 mile bike ride from Lowestoft to Dingle, England’s most Easterly point to Ireland’s most Westerly, to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK. They both have lost people to the disease and have people in their life who are either still fighting it or have thankfully been cured. Their ride will start on Monday 18 June 2018 for five days, this means that they will be riding 120 miles each day - keep updated by reading Andrew's blog posts throughout the week.
They have nearly reached their donation target but would love to smash it, no matter how big or small, your donation will make a difference to someone's life.
Their Just Giving page can be found here.

Welcome to the loaf.We are a busy and vibrant artisan bakery, delicatessen and café in Crich, Derbyshire.
We opened way back in October 2008 (oh how the time has flown!) Since then, we have expanded our bakery and supply to over 30 other businesses, attend farmers' and food markets five days a week, run pizza nights every Wednesday evening, run bread baking courses on Sundays and even cater for events such as weddings and birthdays... all this whilst still baking seven days a week, you could say we like to keep ourselves busy
