1st May to 31st May 2018

The Wessex Cancer Trust Isle of Wight provides free services and support to those living with or affected by cancer. Located in the centre of Newport, the Isle of Wight Support Centre offers an oasis of calm to people who are coping with a very difficult time in their lives.

The Trust is currently trying to raise £100,000 for a new Cancer Wellbeing Centre on the Isle of Wight. This will be a warm and welcoming new community hub for the 6,000 people living with cancer on the Island.

How it Works

Every kilometre ridden along the Cowes to Newport cycle path releases 10p from the sponsorship fund to Wessex Cancer Trust.

If the total target distance of 2,000km is reached by the end of the challenge on 31st May 2018 the amount released is doubled! The cycle path is about 5km long so to reach the target needs around 400 journeys.

  • Each kilometre ridden raises 10p
  • If the 2000km target is met the sponsorship money is DOUBLED

We’re thrilled to have Red Funnel as our sponsor for this challenge. Red Funnel operate the Southampton to Cowes ferries and Red Funnel Holidays. You can take your bike on the vehicle ferry – handy for the Cowes to Newport cycle route.
