James (13) and Andrew (11) and their Dad Scott are cycling over 5 days from Richmond Surrey to Richmond Yorkshire in aid of The Butterwick Hospice. https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/TheLunnandWestonBoysonBikesR2R
This is their journey...(which you can see on the gallery)
Friday 3rd August - day five - after a good night's sleep for them all, and a great breakfast at the lovely Lennox family in York the boys headed for Sharow and Ripon. They arrived at Sharow to meet Bishop Helen Ann just as it started thundering and lightening (Scott described it as "biblical weather"). A great welcome and lunch then they met three cyclists who had come from Catterick and Richmond to cycle them home having read about what the boys were doing from social media. Home via Grewelthorpe and Masham they arrived back at Richmond Station to have some well-earned ice cream and to be rung in by the bells at St Mary's. The day finished with a BBQ at the Scraftons where Andrew fell asleep on the sofa! It's not over yet however as Marcus is going to ride 30 miles in September. A HUGE thank you to everyone for their love and prayers and support for Scott and the boys. Do good, undo harm. #backingthebutterwick
Thursday 2nd August - Day four - after a hearty breakfast in Gainsborough the boys set off for York via Selby and the Yorkshire Cycle Solar path. Stop off points included jam scone and cream in a cute tearoom and seeing an adder on the path in front of them (turned out it was dead). Stop for the evening was York with the lovely Lennox family. Day 5 tomorrow - which should see them home via Sharow and Ripon and into Richmond with the bells of St Mary's ringing them in. Keep going boys!
Wednesday 1st August - Day three - the boys left Bourne Abbey well fed and loved and set off for Gainsborough. It took a bit longer than they thought as Andrew is still recovering from a virus that started before they left on Sunday night. However they're all determined and as well as celebrating Yorkshire Day they went via Lincoln Cathedral and ended up in Gainsborough where they met Gillian for the night. Day four should be Gainsborough to York via Selby. Keep going boys!
Tuesday 31st July - Day two - After a hearty breakfast at the Wranghams the boys left and headed for Bourne via Godmanchester and Peterborough Cathedral. Andrew had a puncture but that was sorted quickly. They are staying with the Pages in Bourne - Nick is the Reader at the church and Elizabeth the Diocesan President of the MU. They'll sleep well tonight and day 3 they will head to Gainsborough.
Monday 30th July - Day one - They arrived by sleeper into Euston, were met by their Uncles who gave them a hearty breakfast. Train and cycle to Richmond Surrey and they were met by the Ministry Team at St Mary Magdalene Church who welcomed, blessed them and sent them on their way. They have arrived at Royston and are staying with the Wrangham family (Jean Wrangham's stepson). They have met huge kindness and love on the way. Tomorrow - Tuesday 31st July will be Day two and is Royston to Bourne. Do have a look at the photos on the gallery and share the good news.
