WOW. I'm so elated to have met my £500 target nearly three months before the bikeathon! I am so lucky to have such generous family, colleagues and friends. I almost wished I set a higher target, but I really did not think anything more than £500 would be possible, so thank you very, very much to everyone who has sponsored me already, you are all absolute champions.
Now, if there are any of you reading this who have not sponsored me, first off, thanks for reading! And secondly, you should not feel obliged to donate, but I really hope you would still like to, even though I have already met my target. What are targets there for, after all, if not to be smashed? Any donation from you will still go to helping fund research into blood cancer, so it is just as important and gratefully received as the first donations that came through.
