Update: A huge congratulations to both Liam’s for the great job finishing their bike ride! Also, thank you so much for raising an AMAZING $745.00 for the Forget Me Not Ward in memory of Grandad Lupton! Thank you both for your wonderful support.
Words from Liam…
Liam and my friend Liam Robinson are doing a sponsored 14 mile bike ride from Fairfield Crescent, Liverpool (the home of my Grandad – where he lived for more than 40 years) to his last house in Warrington, Walton Avenue. We are completing this challenge on 01.10.2017 (at 8AM) as this October marks 3 years since my Grandad’s passing .
My grandad suffered from dementia and was cared for in the last weeks of his life by the nurses on the ‘Forget Me Not’ ward at Warrington Hospital. I have chosen to donate to this ward in particular because I will always remember and appreciate the way they looked after him when he was at his most poorly.
Our route will take us through Old Swan, Prescott, past Whiston Hospital, over the Rainhill Stoops motorway roundabout, along the A57 to Walton Avenue, via Stocks Lane.
I know any donation that you can give to this cause will make a big difference to someone like my Grandad on the Forget Me Not ward.

Helen Higginson WHH Charity Fundraising Manager, said when I met Liam and his friend Liam at the hospital where they had just cycled from school; they shared with me their vision to make a difference to the patients within WHH, especially the Forget Me Not ward.
It was wonderful to hear that by organising this event Liam is able to continue remembering his grandad in such a way that helps others.
