Kate Formstone's first fundraising for Bloodwise

11 May 2016

Kate rode for 6 hours on a turbo at Deepdale retail park in preparation for the 2016 London to Paris 2016 with team JAM (Johnsons Apparelmaster) between 15/09/2016 and 18/09/2016.

For the last 2 years Kate's has seen her colleagues cycle London to Paris for Bloodwise, this time she decided to sign up herself. You can read team JAMs story and sponsor them here:

In preparation for cycling  500km in 4 days and to help raise awareness Kate took her turbo trainer down to Deepdale Shopping Park on Saturday the 30th of April and pedalled from 10am until 4pm.

She was supported by 5 memebrs of the branch who collected, the weather "went from hailstorms to spells of freakishly warm weather" as Kate put it! Kate was also supported by colleagues, her family and her boyfriend.

In total They raised £376.55!

A huge thank you to Deepdale Shopping Park for allowing Kate to hold the event and all the shoppers at Deepdale that day.  It was their pennies and pounds that went into those buckets that will all go to  to help research blood cancers and support those whose lives have been affected by it.
