In April 2017, Paul and Tracy Bowles will be taking on the biking challenge of the John O’Groats to Land’s End loop, starting and finishing in Liverpool. The aim of this epic journey is to raise money for two charities close to their hearts: Missing People and MJCC.
We have designed a 7-day journey, avoiding all motorways, completing a massive 1,839 miles! This is an average of 262 miles and 7 hours actual riding time each day.
We hope you can support us in our efforts to raise money for these two great charities. Thank you in advance for your support.
Missing People Ltd
Paul’s brother, Steven Lockyer, went missing from our lives in April 2016. Missing People is the only charity which offers support to both families who have people missing, and equally to those people who are actually missing from people’s lives. The work they do is imperative, and helps to find, reunite, and support thousands of missing people each year.
During the planning of this ride to raise awareness of the disappearance of Steven, we sadly received news and confirmation of Steven's death. We now dedicate this ride to Steven’s loving memory and hope you can support us in raising funds for other families that have missing loved ones.
Merseyside Jewish Community Care
MJCC provides administrative and care services to the Jewish community in Merseyside, through a small team of staff and volunteers. MJCC aims to enhance the lives of Jewish families, through supporting their physical and mental well-being. They work in partnership with social workers, health professionals (including Marie Curie), housing providers and the wider community, to support clients and assist with cultural sensitivity and understanding.
