The Charity of the Yorkshire Heart Centre
TAKE HEART Lauren McLean
Bicycle ride Land’s End to John O`Groats click any photo to enlarge Miss Lauren McLean has just completed the above bicycle ride to raise funds for Take Heart. Lauren has been associated with Take Heart from being a young girl joining her Grandma and Grandad in the newly formed Take Heart Walking Club and over the years has helped in many ways at fund raising events. She has completed the Great North Run (that was for the McMillan Nurses) and also the 3 Peaks walk for the charity Mind. She then thought that she would like to do something for the charity Take Heart so she decided that as the charity was 30 years old she needed to do something big, hence the bike ride. She set off on August Bank Holiday Tuesday and cycled for 12 days covering 1,016 miles averaging 85 miles per day. She started off in very warm weather and finished in very wet weather with high winds in between. So far Lauren has raised £1741.07 but I am quite sure that she will reach £2,000 as Virgin Money Giving will forward any donations on to the charity for another month.
