Joss Lerwill has got two reasons to be particularly proud of himself at the moment; not only was he the youngest rider on this year’s Tour of Pembrokeshire but he also raised a magnificent £1420 for Cancer Research UK in memory of Annamarie Davies of Fishguard.
Joss, who was nine at the time, rode the 50 mile route which follows the coast from St Davids to the first feed-station at The Pendre Inn Fishguard before heading inland over the gruelling three mile Mynydd Cilciffeth climb to Puncheston after which riders can stop at the Jubilee Inn Letterston prior to re-joining the coast road to St Davids.
Joss, who is pictured holding a beautiful slate trophy donated by Ioan Raymond of slatewineracks.co.uk is with Annamarie’s widower Evan Davies, their youngest son George and Peter Walker of Pembrokeshire Bikes, organising sponsor of the Tour of Pembrokeshire.
In 2012 Evan George set a target to raise £20,000 Cancer Research UK in memory of his late wife. Accompanied by his daughter Sarah Louise, sons Steven and George and family and friends Evan has carried out numerous challenges which have included a walk up Snowdon and a commemorative rugby match. Fishguard and Goodwick Round Table and Fishguard and Goodwick Ladies Hockey Team have also given generous donations.
Evan said “the kindness and support extended to me and my family has been overwhelming, I have currently got £3500 left to raise. If anyone would like to help me and support the highly beneficial work done by Cancer Research UK please donate today at: https://www.justgiving.com/teams/annamariedavies, thank you.”
