Oliver Dobson, the grandson of Formby residents Carole and Ronnie Gilroy, is ‘Going the Extra Mile’ cycling from Lands End to John O’Groats, raising money for St. Josephs, The Frances Taylor Foundation, supporting people with learning disabilities and high complex needs.
He starts on 30th August and it will be 13 days of intense cycling.
Oliver, aged 22, completed the Coast to Coast cycle ride a few years ago, again with donations going to St Joseph’s and he is looking forward to the challenge of cycling from Lands End to John O’Groats.
All the sponsorship money that he raises will be going towards Smartboards and his aim is to reach £3,000.
His grandma, who is a volunteer at St Joseph’s is organising the local sponsorship on his behalf, but you can also donate through VIRGIN GIVING.
Any contribution, no matter how small, will be greatly appreciated.
