Young cyclist takes on cross country challenge

Inspirational Lewin Tubana has set himself a huge challenge to raise funds for Alice House Hospice. 

On 22 August he will be cycling 150 miles from coast to coast over 3 days, aiming to finish at Hartlepool Rugby club on 24 August, his tenth birthday.  

“Suli and I are extremely proud of Lewin. Lewin has been inspired by Hospice Legend Lee Dodgson who has competed in many challenges himself to raise funds for the Hospice; Lee and Lewin share the same birthday.”

Lewin's Mam

Lewin is no stranger to challenges, having previously completed a 10 mile bike ride in 2016 for Miles for Men and a mini-triathlon in 2017 for Muscular Dystrophy UK.  Lewin will be joined by his dad Suli in his biggest challenge to date.

His Mam Lesley said “Suli and I are extremely proud of Lewin. Lewin has been inspired by Hospice Legend Lee Dodgson who has competed in many challenges himself to raise funds for the Hospice; Lee and Lewin share the same birthday.”

The Hospice’s Community fundraiser Janice Forbes said “What an amazing young man, the coast to coast is a big challenge for adults let alone a 9 year old.  It was a pleasure to show Lewin round the Hospice to let him see how the money he raises will be put to use. We wish him the best of luck with his training.”
