If anyone would like to help raise money for the team of charity bike riders raising money for Diabetes UK please read and follow the link to the right and we look forward to seeing them all on the 12th August!
My name is Nick Watson and I am the team leader of a charity event that is taking place in August 2010 in aid of Diabetes UK. We are a team of cyclists attempting to cycle from John O Groats to Lands End and are aiming to into Lands End on the evening of 12th August 2010. We are looking for a place to camp and your camp site looks just the place.
First and foremost, please allow me to give you a little information about the event. My wife, Michelle lost her sister, Kirsty, to D.K.A ( a diabetes related illness) last summer and therefore we are trying to raise as much money for the charity as possible in order to fund more research into the disease. Kirsty was 17 years of age when she lost her life. The cycle will be approximately 1000 miles taking in the lochs, Ben Nevis, the Lake district among other amazing places. We require pitches for no more than 8 small tents and parking for three vehicles. If you could accommodate us, it would be fantastic.
What can we do for you? We will be wearing t-shirts which will bear the logos of any sponsor along the way (if you can supply an electronic copy of your logo). We also have a web link on which we can advertise any one who sponsors us along the way. We intend to get the local press involved, releasing press releases to the newspapers which will include the name and location of our stop overs and will inevitably provide you with a good source of advertisement. This is obviously with your permission. We do not expect anything for free but fully appreciate every little help that we can get in order to support our ride.
