The cause "“ Mark Swift's rehabilitation and the Air Ambulance
In May 2012, Mark Swift and some mates were mountain biking in the Lake District, UK. Unfortunately Mark had an accident towards the end of the ride and suffered serious back and neck injuries leaving him paralysed.
Swift Cycling Club was formed in June 2012 with the main goal of taking a bunch of amateur cyclists on a ride from Land's End to John O'Groats in 2013. We will be raising money for Mark, and the Great North Air Ambulance Service, who saved Mark's life.
We want to raise awareness of the amazing work that the Great North Air Ambulance Service do saving lives every day and to help support Mark on his difficult journey to recovery.Every donation will be split 50/50 between the two causes. If you would like to make a donation under a different split, please email [email redacted].uk with the details.
If you wish to gift aid the proportion of your donation to The Great North Air Ambulance Service, please also email [email redacted].uk with your name, address and donation amount.
