Teenage Cancer Trust Cycling Jerseys

A few of you may remember that I was looking to get some Teenage Cancer Trust cycling jerseys made up. Well, good to my word, that's what I've nearly done.

The jersey will be a Gore Contest FZ (full zip) in Black & White with the TCT logo front and rear (see http://www.tct.org.uk).

Gore have been brilliant in supporting this. The costs I'm covering myself. ALL (100%) proceeds will go directly to TCT. I expect the jerseys to be at or below RRP for the plain jersey - so ca. £50

I know a few of you previously indicated that you'd be interested in supporting this. At this point I wanted just to canvass interest again and some idea of sizing. Even if you don't end up following through with a purchase, it will help me gauge interest and sizing mix.

Thanks for your support

    Certainly sounds like a great project. I would be a large in Gore and I'm interested...

    MRS - I'm due a new jersey from the missus so this could be it!

    I'm interested. I'm a Large (UK) / XL (Euro).

    Interested. FAT. (Craft XXL?).

    Edit: I'll be whatever fits a 46/48 chest.
    What do you mean you think 64cm is a big frame?

    Thank you, guys - I really appreciate the support for this plan.

    As an additional incentive, I'm hoping that my employers will match any money I raise through this so your £50 jersey should net TCT £100. I'm planning on having your payments go directly to TCT through an on-line donation site (ideally TCT's own one but it's not the most "stable") so I don't need to handle anything but the shipping.

    Please keep the expressions of interest coming - I'm going to need to adjust my sizing expectation towards the larger end of the scale :wink: but that's really useful information in itself.

    Cheers & thanks again

    I'm in too, probably a large.
    It's a charity donation with a free top, not the other way round. I can't bring myself to spend that on a fancy t-shirt. I'm far too tight.
  • meanredspidermeanredspider Posts: 12,337
    So these are underway now - hopefully printed next week but certainly before my Malin to Mizen Head ride which starts 4th Aug

    Once I have a sample I'll post pics on here.

    Very much to Veronese68's point, the ordering process will be this:

    Donate £50 to my Teenage Cancer Trust Malin to Mizen page for each jersey you require. The money will then go direct to TCT - I will also be able to match-fund it - your £50 will be turned into £100.

    Referencing your donation, send me a PM with quantity and size requirements plus a shipping address. I'll dispatch at the earliest opportunity.

    Really appreciate all your support - I'm hoping that this initiative will raise £5000 for young people with cancer.

    Would it be easier to ship all the London ones in one parcel? I'm happy to take delivery and I can distribute at the SCR drinks on the 4th, and/or go to the Morpeth one Friday.

    Absolutely - that would be perfect if it works for people - will save me that money as I'm funding this myself - thank you

    MRS - what size are you going for? I think we're about the same size and build.

    OK, I'll pm you my work details nearer the time so someone will be around to take delivery. Happy to help in any way I can.
    Presumably people can let you know when they order, then you give me the list.

    Jerseys at the printers now - hope to have something in my hands next Monday all being well

    Size-wise Gore are slightly more generous than some - I'm an XL in Giordana and the Race-Fit Assos - but I'm an L in Assos Mille Regular Fit and an L in Gore

    For those who want to get orders in now

    http://www.justgiving.com/Richard-Merrell0

    £50 donation secures each jersey (remembering it will get made up to £100 for TCT) then PM me size and delivery details referencing what ever name you used in the JustGiving site.

    Thanks so much for supporting this

    Good on you matey seeing as this is a great cause and a bargain someone should linky this over to road buying advice section.

    All done - I'll let a couple of my friends know and get them to post here if they can support you. Great cause. Really hope it goes well.

    Done, Well done for doing this and good luck with the ride.
    I'll pm you my work address if people could let you know if they want to collect from the SCR summer gathering or possibly at the Morpeth one Friday.
    I agree with Boff, this should be stuck in the road section as well.
  • clarkey catclarkey cat Posts: 3,641
    Done.

    Veronese - happy for you to take delivery on my behalf, cheers.
  • meanredspidermeanredspider Posts: 12,337
    Hey folks - I'm really appreciating the support I'm getting with this initiative.

    I have a delivery date from the printers of Monday 30th July (I'm driving past them back from England) so, for those of you that are holding off to see pics of the finished article, there should be something by Tuesday.

    Please keep the donations rolling in.

    I'll link across to Road too.

    Cheers

    Richard

    Ooh sorry - missed this - I'm going for Large. I can send you pics of me in both a L and XL of a plain Gore Contest jersey if that helps - PM me an email address
