Hi all. Safely back in the UK now. Yesterday (Saturday) we rode the 5 miles from Head Office at Green Hall to the Rugute lodge which is situated near to the hospital in Vilnius. This is a facility where the children and their families can go to rest and stay during and between treatments, it means that families don't have to travel miles each time treatment is administered and it allows them to stay close but get away from the hospital environment. We met up with the familiar faces from the Rugute charity organisation once more in the morning and presented a cheque for £5000. We expect and hope that this may increase a little more to help this really worthwhile cause. We rounded off the day with a walking tour of Vilnius and its 44 churches followed by dinner with our 'support bus driver' Gintaras and his girlfriend, Mum and brother. Many thanks to all who sponsored me. See you soon.
