CoastaLea - riding the coast of Great Britain in aid of the Leah Wilby Foundation

Posted on


Starting on the 16th June 2012, Richard and Gary are riding the coast of Great Britain in aid of the Leah Wilby Foundation.

The Leah Wilby Foundation ( reg charity No 1146160 ) was set up in Leah's memory. Leah lost her seven year fight with Neuroblastoma on the 13th of June, 2011 at 8.25pm, just 4 weeks before her 16th Birthday.

The objectives and purposes of the charity is to provide holiday accommodation to families supporting young people in the UK suffering from childhood cancer. They have named the caravan Leah's Lounge.

Leah's dad Richard and family friend Gary are starting the 14 day, 4,000 mile ride from the Haven Seashore park where Leah's lounge is situated. Heading North they will be riding as close to the coast as is possible, with no support. Just 2 men, 2 bikes, and a couple of tents. 4,000 miles, 14 days and 2 men with no sense of direction... what could possibly go wrong?

Richard and Gary are looking for a company who would be willing to help with the fuel cost. Any company who can help would have their name or logo printed on the jackets and thanked on all press releases.

They are also looking for normal sponsorship.

If you would like to help please contact the Leah Wilby Foundation, [email protected]

We look forward to hearing from you.
