Amazing charity

In September, the UK Ladies Peloton group took part in a challenge to cycle 150 miles each to raise money for Maggie's Centres. They are run purely on charity and have 25 centres in the UK supporting people and their family and friends who get diagnosed with cancer. We were invited along to the centre at St Barts hospital London and met Hannah. Her passion and dedication was truly inspiring for someone so young. She is a keen cyclist and cycles to work and also ran the London marathon yesterday to raise funds for the centre. As per the photo in the challenge we raised £6500 for the charity and it's now a charity I want to do more work for due to losing my mum to cancer. If I can raise more money that would be incredible. Hannah's knowledge of the background to the centre and her passion for what the centre does is amazing. I felt so humbled to have been invited and I know Hannah would like the bike to go to the centre at St Barts if she was fortunate to be picked. Cycling and Peloton and what it can offer may help so many people at the centre who go there to get away from everything. As we have seen from lockdown, mental health and how Peloton can help and has helped so many people. I would love it if this bike can help so many more people. I have lost my mum and my dad is in remission from cancer and I only wish I knew about these centres as it would have been somewhere to go to just get away from the diagnosis and speak to someone and just have a little space. Personally, knowing there was a Peloton there as I love spin would have been a welcome release valve for me.
