Miles Coward, winner of the fifth ‘Ride of your life’ competition has nominated the charity Force Cancer UK.
Miles has a good friend that has experienced cancer at its worst and holds the charity close to his heart.
FORCE (Friends of the Oncology and Radiotherapy Centre, Exeter) became a charity in 1987 and has grown steadily ever since. In 2004 they opened a purpose-built Cancer Support and Information Centre, thanks to more than £900,000 raised by local people and the tireless work of the FORCE team. A £350,000 extension to the Centre was opened in 2012, allowing them to support even more people affected by cancer.
They have a Cancer Support and Information Centre in Exeter for patients and their loved ones who need physical, emotional, psychological and practical support. They offer support and information once a week in Okehampton, Tiverton and Ottery St Mary and pay for the specialist nurses who deliver chemotherapy in all three locations.
Thanks to all who support the ‘Ride of your life’ competitions – The charities are very grateful.
