Story

Hi Everyone,

I have completed the cycle, 35 of us took part in the event and while it was tough it's nothing compared to the efforts made by the people who run and work in hospices.

Thank you to everyone who has supported me and donated, there is still time to donate if you can.

All the Best

Andy

The bikes are off to Halfords to get fixed tonight, hopefully won't cost the earth!

Trying to get the world of Twitter to support me, getting some good retweets hopefully some more support will follow.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I am hoping to cycle from the Wembley Arch to Arc de Triumphe in aid of raising at least £1,300 for Help the Hospices (http://www.helpthehospices.org.uk), a worthy charity trying to improve care for those coming to the end of life.

With family being helped by local hospices it is a charity close to my family’s heart and I am proud to be a part of this challenge. 

Those of you who know me, know that I have recently developed an allergy towards excercise and agreeing to cycle nearly 250 miles is a massive challenge for me.

I am warming up to this with a midnight cycle from London to Brighton on 11th May, you're more than welcome to join me (please note this is not an organised event - just me, my bike and a map!)

I need your support! Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.
