My first mega-tour was in 2013, so we are ten years on and its time to raise more cash for charity. This year I am doing this ride in the memory of my late father “Colin Hawkins” who was always supporting my adventures. It would be amazing if you could support one of my charities via JustGiving.
1. Bath Royal United Hospital (RUHX) – This is where my late father was looked after when he was taken ill by an amazing team of Nurses and Doctors and other staff. To donate please visit Mark Hawkins is fundraising for RUHX (justgiving.com)
2. Save the Children UK – For my international friends, I am also raising money for Save the Children who I have had the pleasure to work for for the past 9 years. Save the Children maintains a disaster response fund. Money raised enable us to respond immediately to disasters around the world. I have personally been to quite a few in my time and recently my team have deployed to Turkey and Ukraine. To donate, please visit Mark Hawkins is fundraising for Save the Children (justgiving.com
I will be setting off from the RUH in Bath on the 11th August on my first leg to Portsmouth Harbour. A week later I will start the main ride to Malaga.
