Next weekend (7th/8th/9th June 2024) the Thomas Hopkins Memorial Bike Ride 2024 will take place. This annual event is one of the major fundraising events for LLMF that has taken place each year since 2016. It is organised by the friends and colleagues who knew Thomas and takes an enormous amount of planning and co-ordination to do their extraordinary challenge. We are delighted to announce that 2 key members of the team (Jonathan Hughes & Andrew Chilcott) have recently joined LLMF as Trustees, more on that news to follow! In the meanwhile, here in Jonathan’s words is a summary of the challenge ahead. Please if you can support them and to see if last year’s amazing total can be matched, follow the link to the “Sponsor Me” page.

Next Friday a few unfit, over weight and quite frankly delusional men will be cycling the entire length of Wales from North to South. Covering almost 270 miles in 3 days, some of us may not even make it past Snowdon!!

Avoiding pubs and night clubs as best we can, I’m sure we will give it our best shot for an amazing cause Lymphoma Leukaemia Myeloma Fund (Wales) – an incredible charity, and most importantly in memory of our friend Tom Hopkins.

If you could spare a few shillings, euro, dollars or drachma! we would be eternally grateful in the knowledge our aches, pains and embarrassing Lycra suits will not be in vain!!

We have completed the ride every year since 2016, it’s a huge effort, not just to ride but to organise and everyone’s hard earned time too, so please be as generous as you can.

Please feel free to sponsor us on the link below and share, share, share.”
