On Sunday 19th August, Andy Fearnhead of Llandudno will be showing his support for his local adult hospice and will be taking part in the Tour De Môn.
Last year the event welcomed over 1400 cyclists to the shores of the Newry Beach in Holyhead and was deemed one of the best sportives in the country. It will explore the roads and scenery of the beautiful island of Anglesey.
Supported by his friend Marcus Jones, Andy will be tackling the Bach Route which involves 46 mile circular route starting at Holyhead, cycling towards Llangefni and returning via Llanddeusant.
Andy, 56, Carer at Brompton Lodge, Rhos on Sea said:
“St David’s Hospice is an amazing place with amazing staff and volunteers and they deserve every penny raised.
“In my wife’s last days the hospice provided excellent care and we, as a family, have never forgotten this and will always be grateful that she had somewhere like the hospice to go.
“The staff were amazing with us in what was an extremely difficult time.”
Hospice Community Fundraiser, James Wilde said:
“Ever since his wife’s passing Andy and his family have been loyal supporters of the Hospice.
“As a keen cyclist Andy is really motivated for this challenge and I know he’ll do a great job in memory of Karen and raise vital funds in support of St David’s Hospice.”
St David’s Hospice cares for local people, delivering specialist care to adult patients with advanced illnesses or those in need of end of life care and their families.
The charity has recently announced its plans to development of satellite hospice unit at Ysbyty Penrhos Stanley, Holyhead which will aim to deliver the high quality specialist care currently available at the main hospice in Llandudno.
