C2C from Whitehaven to Newcastle

Over May bank holiday weekend, ten of Alice’s extended family and friends cycled the Coast-to-Coast in her memory and to raise money for the Trust. The C2C route from Whitehaven to North Shields is over 140 miles long, passing across the Lake District and over the Pennines as well as through the centre of Newcastle where Alice lived. It was a tough challenge—but at least the weather was favourable—except for the 30mph headwind!

The event has already raised well over £3000 for the Trust. You can still sponsor the cyclists, and help them reach their £5000 target, by visiting their MyDonate page.
