Citygrove's Anibal Maseda to cycle 3,000km from Rome to Santiago de Compostela in Spain for Great Ormond Street Hospital
On 24th July 2017 Anibal will be setting off along the pilgrimage route called The Way of St James from Rome to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. Having completed the Way of St James in 2007 from London to Santiago and the Via Francigena in 2011 from London to Rome he will once again be riding solo and unsupported.
Anibal is raising money for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity (GOSH) where his son was successfully treated for leukaemia. The trip is self funded and all the sponsorship monies raised will go directly to GOSH.
If you would like to sponsor Anibal by sending a donation, please would you kindly address your cheque to ‘Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity’ (or ‘GOSHCC’ will suffice) and send it to him at Citygrove. Alternatively, you could visit the mydonate website and donate electronically through the following address: https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/anibalmaseda1 but the charity receives more through cheque donations. If you do send a cheque and you are a UK tax-payer, please would you fill in a gift aid form (click here for the form) as this means the Government will give a further 25% of your donation to the cause.
