Hi All Bashers,

On the 20th June Wallace & Gromit, two TVPB “Wrinkles,” will set off on a Charity “French Ride” to undertake a cycle from Bilbao to Roscoff – approximately 800 miles! They will ride fully loaded & intend to camp en-route which will probably take them at least 3 weeks to complete.

Both Wallace, who will then be 80, and Gromit at 78 are recovering from Cancer and they are raising money to support 2 Cancer Charities and Muscular Dystrophy.

They will be joined on this epic journey by a “Young Basmarty”, who, having been discharged from Langdon as surplus to requirements, has kindly agreed to help with the planning, feats of strength, hill climbing, Rugby information etc, and any complex psychiatric problems – should the need arise. 

But that’s not all! The Tweedles will also join them en-route in France – most appropriate as Tweedledum is a Cancer victim too, plus the fact that both the Tweedles have also had both hips replaced.

Last, but not least, is Plugger who has offered to transport them and their bikes to Bristol Airport for free – Plugger has also fought off Prostate Cancer – what a Motley Crew they make!!

So that’s what it’s all about? Cancer is something that can, and has, affected so many Bashers. Therefore, please be sympathetic and give generously to their designated Bank Account. 

Sort Code 40-64-20     Acc. No. 11918614.

Wallace and Gromit would like to thank you all for taking the time to read this.  OR, you can cross their palms directly with “folding silver”. Pottsie (non-invasive Bladder Cancer) or Sticky would also be happy to take your money on their behalf.                                                      

Ride On,
