Here at CrossStitcher we like to help our friends out, especially our stitchy friends so we thought we'd let you know about a 55 mile cycle (yes, 55 miles!) that a few of our favourite stitching companies are taking part in.
On 11th and 12th August, Mike (from Michael Powell Art), Nigel (from Coats Crafts), and John and Phil (from EmbroiderStitch) are going to cycle the 55 mile Taff Trail from Cardiff to Brecon (in Powys) to raise money for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research.
And the next day they'll be cycling the 55 miles back home!
They're doing all this to raise money for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research, a charity that's very important to Michael Powell's designer, Julia.
Her youngest son was diagnosed with Lymphoma four years ago and the team want to raise as much money as possible for this worthy charity.
You can read more about his story and donate at www.justgiving.com/taffcycling.
Good luck guys!
