Support Jane on the Award’s coast-to-coast cycle challenge

A bicycle on rocks beside some water.

For those of you who don’t know, the lovely Jane works for The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award; she’s their New Start Project co-ordinator.

The New Start project was launched in 1998 with the aim of demonstrating how the Award Programme can compliment and enhance the work of organisations concerned with reducing and preventing youth crime and promoting community safety.

As part of the Award’s 50th Anniversary the Scottish Award Office Team are embarking on a cycle challenge. They are planning to cycle from coast-to-coast, west to east, Glasgow to Edinburgh on Friday 4 August 2006 in order to raise £1,000 for the Award’s Jubilee Fund, which will help to secure the future of the Award and the amazing work that it does.

If you would like to support Jane and the rest of the Scottish Award team then you can donate money at Just Giving.

  1. Re: my text… is it best to sponsor per pub stop on the way or per blister? Can you tell me a bit about the plan – how long/where will people stay/are there many folk?

    Will there be motorcycle outriders like in the (or Le) ‘Tour’?

    I would have loved to have ridden along – but am “Reality” camp.
