The Beijing Biddies Challenge was completed in 29 days! The fundraising continues and we so appreciate your help. 

After an extraordinary month of challenge across a variety of terrains and meeting some incredible people, facing some adversity and overcoming it all, we have arrived home.

Beijing Biddies on flight home

Here we are – the BBs on plane from Beijing to Dubai. Made sure of the champagne first before taking on new role as stewardesses for Emirates!! An epic journey to Beijing – what an incredible life time experience! Truly memorable.

29 driving days!

The BBs would like to say a very big thank you to all those people who have sponsored them, donated to their chosen charities and supported them. All of this is very much appreciated.

The BBs would be very grateful if you could keep spreading the word as much still needs to be done to raise the necessary monies for their 2 chosen charities – Cancer Research UK and Macmillan Cancer Care support.

There is a virgin money giving page on our website. The BBs are now looking forward to the documentary being made by Cumbria TV and released later in the year.

Stop Press: You can now text a donation of £1 or more to 70070. Just include BBID60 and the amount. Thank you!
