Cycling, Charities and Boats

I will be cycling in the 2011 Pick n Pay Cape Argus Cycle Tour.

As exciting as that bit of news is on its own, I will be doing for St Luke’s Hospice.

St Luke’s description: ” St Luke’s Hospice provides palliative care to people who are approaching the end of their lives. A team of skilled professional staff and volunteers improves the quality of life of these patients through early identification, impeccable assessment and treatment of pain and the other physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of the patients and their families. This is given, irrespective of the patient’s ability to pay for the service.”

I can attest to the work and the care to which they give sick people, as my grandmother was with them before she passed on.

For that reason and others we are raising funds for St Luke’s as well as cycling in the Argus event. BONUS…

To raise funds we are holding a raffle.

Three lucky winners for every 100 tickets sold for only R50 a ticket.

To enter you can: a)  join the facebook page

b) mail your chosen raffle number and contact details to                                    

c) respond via twitter

Indicate which numbers 1-100 you would like to buy then mail me or arrange a meeting for payment and entry. Entrants should ideally be based in Cape Town to claim the prize.

Find me on the St Luke’s Website (Ryan Blanchard): (feel free to sponsor online but it does not gain you entry to the prize draw)

Thanks in advance and look forward to seeing you on the road.
