Sponsored cycle ride
Jennifer Lauruol and Richard Gibbens cycled 900 miles to raise money for Milestones Trust. Jennifer's daughter is a resident at Kilvie House, one of our residential homes.
They cycled from the French Atlantic coast to the Alps, climbing over 2,744 metres and following part of the route taken by the Tour de France.
Milestones Trust is being battered by local authority cuts. It is a values-driven organisation and its costs are very real because of the quality – we want to support the quality of care given.
Jennifer’s daughter Marie Lauruol, who has learning disabilities, lives at Kilvie house, one of fifty care homes run by the Trust. “She has lived there for ten years,” Jennifer comments, “she is happy and has a good life there.”
Jennifer’s dream is to set up a fund for Milestones Trust that will allow the charity to continue being innovative with its services – going the extra mile for residents.
It might pay for sensory gardens, more trips out, and making the homes more sustainable “That would be a great dream of mine – to help Milestones grow more of its own food and become more green.”
