Christine Green is completing LEJOG for Women V Cancer
After receiving a bike for her 70th birthday last year, Christine Green, wife of Green & Co’s founder Hugh, felt in need of an adventure, and what could be better than to cycle from down south in Lands’ End, all the way up to her birth country, Scotland. Some of you may know this cycle as LEJOG.
With such a huge challenge, Christine was originally going to complete it without fundraising, but after a number of enquiries, she organised a JustGiving page, scrapped her PAYG phone and upgraded to a smartphone, and is even doing a daily blog.
So who is the well deserving charity? Christine decided on CAF – Women V Cancer which supports three cancers under one umbrella – breast, ovarian and cervical. This disease in any form is something we can all relate to, either personally or through family and friends and it’s one that impacts on all women from Lands’ End to John O’Groats.
Over the last 4 weeks, having planned her course using a mixture of routes from the Sustrans guide on National Cycle Networks and the Cicerone End to End route, Christine has been racking up the miles.
Now in Scotland, and nearing the finish line, we wanted to share her inspirational story. If you would like to follow Christine on her journey or support her by making a donation, please follow through to her JustGiving page using the button below.
