Alison Hammond has pledged £300 to a charity fundraiser in Solihull. Village Gym is raising money for the charity Cure Leukaemia.

Six members of Solihull Village Gym have cycled 500km in the past four days, from 8 June to this Monday 12 June. The distance is equivalent from cycling to Paris from London.

Alison gave her generous donation this Monday (12 June) night, and shared the fundraiser to Twitter. Posting to her 455,000 followers, she wrote: “I've #justsponsored Cycle to Eiffel, who's fundraising for Cure Leukaemia on @JustGiving. Donate now”.

Accompanying the This Morning presenter’s £300 donation was a kind message, which read: “Very proud of you all. Love Alison xx”.

The JustGiving fundraiser currently sits at just over £7,000, with a final goal of £12,000. The riders describe the 400km trek as their “biggest challenge to date”.

Donations to the fundraiser will aid charity Cure Leukaemia. The fundraiser site reads: “The funds that you will help to raise will directly support a network of Cure Leukaemia Research Nurses at 12 blood cancer centres across the UK who enable the rapid assessment of highly promising, pioneering and potentially, life saving treatments for blood cancer patients through clinical trials.”

Any donations to the fundraiser are appreciated by the organisers, who said: “We would be hugely grateful if you could support the team in any way possible!” Those wishing to donate and support the Village Gym team as well as Cure Leukaemia can do so on the fundraiser’s official JustGiving page.
