Keith’s 12,000 mile cycle ride for Dorothy House Foundation

Update: Keith has achieved 15,000 miles in 2016!

Keith surpassed his initial target of 12,000 miles and achieved 15,000. SVCC would like to congratulate Keith on this amazing feat.

There is still time to donate:

keith_dorothyThree years ago my partner Caroline died from pancreatic cancer. When she was diagnosed she was given three months to live and indeed three months later she passed away.

This was a terribly difficult and sad time for myself, Caroline’s son, two daughters and her sister. Trying to support Caroline and look after her during these last days of her life took its toll on all of us and would have been even harder had it not been for the tremendous help and support given to us by the Dorothy House hospice. They provided all the practical help and medical advice needed in caring for someone with a terminal illness.

After her death I wanted to volunteer for Dorothy House but I was told to wait for a year or so as this would give me time to come to terms with my loss. I’m now ready to give back to Dorothy House for all the care and support that was given to me during a very difficult time in my life.

Being a keen cyclist all my life, (I am now 71 years old) I have decided to set myself the target of cycling 12,000 miles in 2016, in the Somerset and Wiltshire area. I am a cancer survivor having had two cancer operations in 2005/06, chemotherapy and radiotherapy which have had unpleasant lasting effects to this day making the challenge even more difficult, so please give generously 😉

Donations can be made through my JustGiving page:

Thank you.

Keith Evans
