Make It Count

Raising Invaluable Funds For The Shakespeare Hospice

In 2020 The Shakespeare Hospice celebrates its 21st Anniversary, so it would be fantastic if riders raise a minimum sponsorship of £21 for our charity, which provides care and support to patients and families affected by life limiting illness.  If you’d like more information about the hospice, please see our website at

Our services are free to patients, their carers and families, but not free to provide. Please consider raising money through sponsorship to help our Hospice, it really does make such a difference.

You can help us raise essential funds by:

Pledging to raise £21

Whichever route you choose, you can pledge to raise £21 in sponsorship. Whatever distance you’re cycling, remember to tell your friends and family.  Gathering sponsorship from loved ones, neighbours and work colleagues all adds up!

You can fundraise on-line (see below) or use our sponsorship form.

Make a donation in lieu of sponsorship

Choose your own amount to donate to help us continue our services when you register online for the event  We can claim gift aid on this, so please do consider a donation.

Fundraising On-line

Fundraising online really is easy, quick and safe to use.  You can set up your fundraising page as you go through our registration process.

Cycling for someone special

Taking part in The Great Shakespeare Ride will undoubtedly be a memorable event, and you’ll be part of a big team. Lots of our cyclists like to use the challenge to remember their loved ones, which makes it all the more special.

If you are riding in memory of someone special please contact us to make your tribute known.

Match Funding

Could you double your fundraising efforts by asking your employer to match fund? So many of our supporters find this a great way to increase their sponsorship.
