We do recognise that the Tour of Ayrshire and the Tour of Cambridgeshire are not designed as charity events, they are Gran Fondos in their DNA. The Gran Fondo status however is wholly inclusive and a number of major charities have partnered with Golazo Cycling to offer the festivals to their own stakeholders who have an interest in both the charity and Gran Fondo. Should it be the case that any entrants into ToC wish to ride ToC …and perhaps the Worlds…for a cause then please consider one of the organisations we have partnered with.
Alzheimer’s Research UK
Cycling To Defeat Dementia
We at Alzheimer’s Research UK would like to invite you to ride as part of our team because, by riding with us, you will be helping to defeat dementia.
Dementia is a devastating condition which too many families are affected by. There are 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK and this number is expected to rise to over 1 million by 2025. The only way to defeat dementia is through research. Alzheimer’s Research UK powers world class studies, focusing on prevention, diagnosis and developing much-needed treatments. However, these can only continue with funding.
We rely on generous fundraisers and donors to power our research. If you would like to raise money for Alzheimer’s Research UK while completing the Tour of Cambridgeshire, simply click here to sign up.
Together we can defeat dementia.
The ATLAS Foundation was founded by Jason Leonard OBE and works through a global network of Rugby Champions to support projects that use rugby to improve the lives of some of the poorest people on earth. Through rugby based projects ATLAS feeds, clothes and educates as well as giving the fun, friendship and respect that only rugby can provide. In 2016 we raised £200k and pledged support of £150k to 12 projects across Europe, Africa and Asia.

Cancer Research UK
We’re the only ones fighting over 200 cancers – including the one that matters the most to you. Our life-saving work is funded entirely by the generosity of our supporters, so every step we make towards beating cancer relies on every pound, and every rider. Today, one in two people now survive cancer; we want to get to three in four within the next 20 years.
Together we’ve achieved so much, join our team today and we will beat cancer sooner.
Ride for Macmillan and make sure no one faces cancer alone. 1 in 2 of us will be affected by cancer by 2030, and we urgently need your help to make sure we can reach out to and support as many people as possible.
And if you raise over £300 you will get one of our exclusive #teammacmillan cycling jerseys!

Sue Ryder – Thorpe Hall
Just £100 could pay for a Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice nurse for a day, a nurse who will provide incredible care to people like Alison and her husband George.
“When George was admitted to Thorpe Hall it was like a weight had been lifted. I didn’t know the best way to care for George but the staff at Thorpe Hall did which meant I could be his wife. That gave me the time I needed to tell George everything he meant to me and thank him for everything he had given me. When the end came, although it was the worst time of my life, George had a beautiful end.”
Thorpe Hall Hospice cares for patients aged 16 and over from across the region both at the hospice in Peterborough and across the region through Thorpe Hall Hospice at Home, befriending and family support services. To do that the hospice has to fundraise £1.5million every year. Join #TeamIncredible at the Tour of Cambridgeshire and help people like Alison and George.
