Having recently adopted CAFT as our official charity partner, in line with STFC, Glow were raring to go, so when the challenge to cycle Lands End to John O’Groats (LEJOG) came up, we signed up with nervous bravado!

The official cycling distance is 1189 miles.

John Leake and Phil Blything are keen but not particularly able cyclists so the plan to press gang several more to shoulder the burden was hatched and the team took shape.

We have 8 for the team so far - if you’re interested, get in touch. If you'd like to sponsor, JustGiving page is here.

CAFT is based at the beautiful Booth Bank Farm, a 17th Century farmhouse set in the heart of the Cheshire countryside. They provide a variety of free programmes for terminally ill, disabled and disadvantaged children from all over the North West. CAFT helps children of all abilities aged 17 and under. Children who through no fault of their own miss out on the normalities of childhood. The needs of the children visiting the Farm are complex and range from severe physical and learning disabilities, sensory impairments and terminal illnesses through to children who act as carers for a family member, who have already faced bereavement or children who have witnessed and been victims of abuse.

In 2024, CAFT are aiming to provide opportunities for almost 21,000 children, all of whom live within Northwest communities, including many children from within the Halton area. For these children, a visit to CAFT provides a much-needed opportunity to have fun and laughter and to simply enjoy being children. Each child that visits CAFT is treated as an individual with their own strengths, likes and dislikes. Disability is never seen as a barrier to participation and children from all social and ethnic groups are welcomed.

We thrive on a challenge. Tell us about yours.
