Look out for Luke on his way from Bristol to Beijing raising money for cancer charities


BEARR would like to share this message from an exceptional young man undertaking a very brave venture – to cycle from England to China. Please read his message below. He will be passing through countries on which BEARR focuses and hopes to contact organisations which have received grants from the BEARR Trust.  If you’ve run a project financed by BEARR, check Luke’s progress on his website to see if he’s passing near you, and get in touch with him if you’d like to tell him your story for his podcast or help him pedal his tandem for some kilometres!

Hi everyone, my name is Luke. I am cycling from Bristol to Beijing on a tandem, a bike for two. Do you want an adventure? Do you want to be part of an expedition with purpose? Send me a message!

I was diagnosed with cancer two years ago, when I was 24. I didn’t think I would see Christmas. I am very lucky to be here. 

Now I am cycling from Bristol to Beijing, rewriting what is possible with a cancer diagnosis. I want to share this journey with as many people as possible! This could be on the tandem, sharing a meal or finding out why your home is special to you. For more info check out https://bristol2beijing.org/

To share the stories of people I meet on the way, I have set up a podcast Facing Up – if you know someone who has a story to share, let me know! Listen to previous episodes here.

Want to support but don’t know how? If you are able, consider supporting our five charities which help people with cancer here.

Get in contact with me by SMS or on WhatsApp on +44 7522119882
