Fantastic fundraisers taking Big C to Europe

Recently here at Big C we've been following in awe and gratitude the progress of Big C Supporter James Harvey as he is currently in the midst of his epic fundraising challenge of cycling his way throughout Europe in aid of Big C.

This summer I'm setting out on a new adventure, cycling from the northernmost point of Europe, to its southernmost point, then along the Mediterranean coast to Istanbul before returning to the UK and home."

Back in May he set off from the UK to Nordkapp, Norway which was his starting point for his epic cycle ride "the journey starts in Nordkapp, Norway, inside the Arctic Circle, from where I'll be pedalling through various countries and landscapes down to Tarifa in southern Spain. I'll be carrying all my gear with me, camping when I get tired, and eating when I'm hungry; the latter is likely to happen fairly often given I'm aiming to average at least 60 miles a day.”

James is doing all of this to raise money for Big C in memory of Lu Harvey, who passed away from cancer in 2012 "the Big C provided immense support for Lu Harvey who sadly passed away in Feb 2012 after a very brave battle with cancer. We all miss her very much, but even though Lu isn’t around in person she provides inspiration whenever I think of her."
