Taking the heat for women's charities

Women V Cancer supports three women’s charities: Breast Cancer Care, Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust and Ovarian Cancer Action...

In October 2015, product manager Cerys Hill, took part in a cycle ride in Tanzania to raise money for Women V Cancer. Together with her colleague, Rebecca McCreath (who is a trustee of Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust), they cycled the gruelling 400km route from Kilimanjaro to the Ngorongoro Crater, in 40 degree heat. 

This included some tricky off-roading, deep sand and a climb higher than Ben Nevis. It was by far the hardest thing they had ever done, but totally worthwhile as the event raised over £1 million for the women’s charities, making a real difference to many lives.
