MP backs #teamaliceontour fundraising drive

April 23, 2012 5:05 PM

South Lakes MP Tim Farron is supporting Alice Pyne who is raising money, along with a number of cyclists, for Alice's Escapes, a charity that organises holidays in the Lake District for families of seriously ill children.

Alice, who has Hodgkins Lymphoma, is raising funds for the charity, by supporting a number of cyclists as they bike from Lands End to John O Groats.

The cyclists will departWarringtonand will travel to Ulverston tomorrow. It is estimated they will arrive at around 4pm.

Tim said: "Alice's bucket list has touched the hearts of millions of people in the space of a few days - we must make sure that empathy translates into more lives being saved. Alice is absolutely right when she says the best way to help is to sign up to be a donor. So please sign up with the Anthony Nolan blood cancer charity, whoever you are. Particularly consider volunteering if you are a man aged 18 to 30 - we need you to come forward. For some cancer patients this may be their only hope."
