A WINWICK man is set to take on a difficult challenge, cycling the 346km Trans Pennine Trail to raise money for Cheshire and Merseyside Blood Bikes and Prostate Cancer UK.
Paul Chruszcz, 66, will be joining three others to cycle the Trans Pennine Trail coast to coast from Southport to Hornsea, a total of 346 kilometres, from May 13 – 17. A keen cycler, Paul has never attempted a challenge on this scale, but is hoping his efforts will raise much-needed funds for two important charities.
Commenting on the challenge Paul said: “I enjoy cycling and go out on my bike most days and I took part in my first sponsored cycle challenge last year, but that was just within Cheshire. I have never done anything like this before, 346km over 5 days is going to be an extremely tough challenge.
“I am doing this to raise money for two very worthwhile charities that do fantastic work. Every person who sponsors me will be helping me to get to that finish line in Hornsea and I would be so grateful for any donations, however small, as they will all make a huge difference.”
Cheshire and Merseyside Blood Bikes transport a wide range of vital blood and tissue samples between hospitals across Cheshire and Merseyside, to enable quick and efficient delivery of vital supplies. While money donated to Prostate Cancer UK will help fund improvements in diagnosis, treatment, prevention and support for Prostate Cancer sufferers.
Any donation, however small, will make a big difference to these charities, if you would like to support Paul, please donate via his Just Giving page https://www.justgiving.com/teams/Paul-Chruszcz.
