The Patrick Wild Centre and Leuchie House

Ediston’s Alastair Dickie and James Waterson of Simply Finance have a goal this year, to cycle from the south tip to the north tip of Ireland in 6 days, starting off on the 25th August 2019 covering just over 500 miles.

The route winds its way north along the Atlantic Coast from Mizen Head to Malin Head, a beautiful journey for a great cause. Alastair and James are cycling for 2 wonderful charities, one being Leuchie House in North Berwick which provides short breaks and holiday respite care for MS sufferers and the second is The Patrick Wild Centre who provide research to test new therapies for autism spectrum disorder (ASD), intellectual disabilities (ID) and Fragile X syndrome , which James’s son, Harry, is affected by.

The target is to raise £20,000 to further support these charities in their amazing work.

You can help Alastair and James by donating on the Just Giving page found here:


UPDATE -  We have managed to go through the £20k target.  6 days, 4.5 days of rain, sometimes biblical, couple of hours of hailstones and a first morning of sunshine and a dry few moments to take a photo thank you to everyon who donated towards our ride!
