Jigsaw Medical is delighted to be providing the medical cover for The Natterjack Charity Bike Ride.
The Natterjack is a charity bike ride along the Tissington Trail in Derbyshire, starting at Ashbourne, up to Parsley Hay and back. A total of 27 miles. Cyclists have the option to do as many miles as they feel they can as there are five stops between the two, and each stop will have a cake and refreshments stall (free cake for cyclists).
Instead of paying to enter each cyclist must go on the Delete Blood Donor register (if they are able) to enter, there will be a tent up where you can register on the day. Peak District Park has offered to donate a percentage of all cycle hire to the fund to add to any sponsorship money cyclists collect themselves (we recommend a pound a mile).
Due to the trail having plenty of stop off points children can join in for sections, or all of it depending on their capability, less able cyclists can also join in too.
Every scrap of money is being split between ‘Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research’ and ‘Delete Blood Cancer’ and the most important part of the day is getting as many people on the blood stem cell donor list as possible to help save a life.
All of this event is happening to support and help Jack, a friend of the organiser who was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia recently and is currently going through aggressive chemotherapy with the support of his wonderful partner Nat and two lovely children.
