In his own words … ‘David Cahill is a 60 year old, overweight, grandfather. What kind of crazy guy is he to want to cycle 180 Km (120 miles) in a day, up and down hills – the highest of which is 860 feet above sea level and goes all the way from seaside up a 9% gradient – to the very top. 

Well, he is doing it for Network training and counselling ( cos his wife is a trustee. Network provides low cost counselling to people all over Bristol.  Please support him in this crazy endeavour. ‘

Vote for us now!

Every vote counts. So why not register or log-in to vote for our project at the Aviva Community Fund and help us raise up to £10,000 by winning.

A great evening of good company, a great curry, dancing, a quiz and plenty of nostalgia with great music supplied by Malcolm. Overall we raised £800 which will be split between Network Counselling and Training and Bristol Hospitality Network who cooked for us.

‘When can we do this again?’ was what most people asked … well we hope to do something similar once we have moved into our new premises in Elm Park, Filton early in 2018 so watch this space.
