Help for Hope | Pertemps

Richard Bishop, Senior Executive Consultant at one of Pertemps' partner Network companies, Sheridan Maine, needs your help to raise £25,000 for a friend’s vital cancer treatment.

Richard and a close group of friends are cycling to Paris in April to raise money toward the life changing treatment.

Richard’s friend, Hope, beat cancer four years ago and has since bought a house and got engaged. However, in December she received the news her cancer had returned and metastasised to her lungs.

Hope has a rare form of cancer called Soft Tissue Sarcoma which is classed by the NHS as incurable.

But, there is hope for Hope… there is a drug in the US which has had success on other people with the same condition. This comes with a huge price tag of £750,000, but with your help, this target could be in reach.

Richard will cycle 300 miles from Billericay, Hope’s hometown, to Paris between 18th– 21stApril. Richard and his friends are amateur cyclists who have borrowed their parent’s bikes… so it won’t be easy!

Richard said: “Any contribution will help, no matter how big or small. This will make a difference in keeping Hope alive so she can continue to bring happiness to those around her as she has done for the last 27 years.”
