Charlie Hardiman and three friends will be cycling the Carten100, to raise money for City Hospice.
On the 07th of May, Charlie, James, Jamie and Sam will each be doing the Carten100, a 108-mile cycle from Cardiff to Tenby in aid of City Hospice. The group decided to take on the challenge as a close family friend has recently been cared for by City Hospice and wanted to raise some funds to say thank you.
Charlie told us:
“There are lots of things we’re looking forward to, such as the atmosphere at the start plus the multiple food stops along the way, especially the ice cream. Most importantly, we’re looking forward to helping and encouraging each other along the way and finishing off with a BBQ in Tenby!
The hills are going to be a challenge, especially towards the end but we’ve each done hill training so we’re hoping to be ok the day. We’ve been training hard for the last two to three months; during the week we tend to do shorter cycles and bigger ones on the weekend. Some have been in the glorious sunshine, others in the heavy wind, rain and even hail. I think we’re more nervous about getting lost as we would like to avoid adding any extra miles onto the 108!”
We’re so grateful to the group for supporting City Hospice. We rely on £2m a year in donations in order to provide free of charge end of life care to patients and to provide continued support to their families and loved ones”.
Daisy Magill, Senior Fundraising Coordinator said:
“Thank you so much for Charlie, James, Jamie and Sam for taking on the Carten100 for City Hospice, you’ve raised such a fantastic amount already and their will make such a difference to our work. Everyone at City Hospice is wishing you the best of luck on Saturday!”
