Can you help?

After learning that a close relative had been diagnosed with terminal cancer, father and son team Dave and Mitch Bull wanted to do something to help.
Read their amazing story here, and please help if you can!  Every little bit makes a difference.

The story:
When Dave and Mitch Bull found out that a close relative had been diagnosed with terminal cancer, they decided to do something to raise funds for cancer research. Dave – editor of the popular All Abroad magazine – had just bought a kayak. So he suggested to Mitch that they row along one of the most dangerous sections of the River Segura from Murcia to Guardamar to raise funds for the Spanish cancer charity AECC. Although Mitch had never even been in a kayak, he agreed, because like a good son, he does what Dad says – most of the time anyway!

The Kayak Challenge raised around €3000 for AECC, but more importantly, it raised awareness of the work of the charity in Spain, and the work of the Samaritans in Spain, of which Dave is a patron. It’s no exaggeration to say that cancer touches every family at some point, and the Samaritans often have to deal with the fallout, and help cancer sufferers and relatives through a very difficult time.

Because the Kayak Challenge was so successful, Dave  has decided to take on a challenge each year to raise funds and awareness of the work of AECC and the Samaritans in Spain. Flushed with the success of the Kayak Challenge, he´s gone bigger and better. The Motorbike Challenge will see Dave and Mitch bike around the perimeter of Spain, avoiding motorways and stopping off at schools and other institutions on the way. They’re hoping that all of Spain will join in to raise money which will be cashed in to add to the total.
