In May 2016 Lisa and Vicci took on the GungHo! Challenge to raise money for Yes to Life. The 5km course featured 10 inflatable obstacles to overcome, which was no problem for our star fundraisers - and they even had fun too!

Thank you Lisa and Vicci!

Tash completes the London Marathon 2017

After months of forgoing the bus to run to the office, our very own Yes to Life team member Tash completed her first marathon in April...and she is still talking about it!

'It was an unforgettable day of joy, pain, excitement, laughter and tears and I was blessed with the most incredible support a girl could ask for. I managed to complete the 26.2 miles in 4 hours 50 minutes but now I'm wondering if I could do it faster...watch this space'

Well done Tash

Sebastian Morrison completes RideLondon

Our awesome fundraiser Sebastian completed this 100 mile cycle in August 2015 raising over £1700 for Yes to Life in memory of his friend Amanda, wow!

He said: 'The Ride London was amazing - it went by in a blur of colour and light and speed - it was awesome. Towards the end when I was tying up with cramps (my personal bugbear) I did feel immensely grateful that I was alive and well enough to be cramping up on mile 95 and heading towards The Mall with that being my greatest problem - it puts things in to perspective.'

BIKEast 2012 5th - 12th October

2012, the sixth and final year of the epic BIKEast London to Istanbul ride. Setting out from Thessaloniki in Greece - last year's destination - our hardy (or is that foolhardy?) bikers covered around 450 miles, arriving in Istanbul on 12th October. A few bikers were not a litte surprised to find that the wild plan, casually hatched over a pint or two in London, had actually happened! London to Istanbul by bike.

Partners, friends, rellies and all came to join us for a celebratory party in Istanbul on 13th October. What an adventure!

Watch this space for details of the next amazing challenge for our heroic bikers.

Last of the Summer Rum

August 2012

Marsha Grant and Jemma Allett daringly put on a barbecue with a Jamaican slant, right at the end of August. By a miracle the day turned out to be the first sunny one for weeks, and so Suzanne Ferreira's generously loaned, fabulous back garden overlooking the Hampstead Ponds was idyllic. The event brought in £500 for Yes to Life - sincere thanks to all those who gave time and energy to make it happen!

Ride for Life

7-8 May 2012

Oliver Daly, cousin of Bryony, the original inspiration for Yes to Life, cycled from his home in Devon to Lands End and back in two days. That’s 250 miles in two days! And it wasn't exactly smooth going either - 4 punctures, a snapped chain, wrecked gears and some seriously inclement weather! "...it was the hardest, most soul breaking test of determination, spirit and commitment that I have ever faced...".
