Attention all Cyclists!

If you were disappointed not to get a place in this year’s Prudential Ride London on the 16th August or if you have ever considered taking part in this fantastic event, then please get in touch.
We have 4 places available to ride for us with an achievable fundraising target. This is an extremely popular and challenging event, with 25,000 cyclists riding 100 miles through an iconic route in central London and the beautiful Surrey countryside, whilst really helping a small local charity (and the route even goes right past our offices!)
So if you are interested, please contact Liz Grace, Community Fundraising Coordinator for more information! lgrace@dyscover.org.uk

Supportive work Colleagues

Yesterday we had some very special visitors, a team from Legal and General who are work colleagues of Kevin, (one of our Wednesday morning group members). They have been busy fundraising for Dyscover and have so far have raised over £4500 which is just amazing. It was lovely to meet them and show them exactly what Dyscover is all about. They met Rosemary and Alice and the office staff and then spent some time in one of the groups which they really enjoyed. They then took Kevin out for a very fancy lunch! Thank you Rachel, Willem and Daria for taking the time to come and visit us and for all the amazing fundraising that you have been doing for us.

Cathy’s cycling from Goa to Mumbai


Our friend and supporter Cathy Sparks is training hard for an epic challenge next month when she will join a team of 30 women cycling over 400km from Goa to Mumbai over 5 days to raise money for us. She has been busy training, despite all the bad weather -very different to the hot weather she will experience whilst she is in India!
At the moment Cathy is cycling one or two days per week covering around 40 miles each time as well as running and doing pilates. We are all so impressed by her commitment and the effort she is putting in.
You can read more about Cathy, this amazing challenge and show your support here: https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/CathyWoodall1
Everyone at Dyscover wishes Cathy lots of luck!
