Story

LONDON2BRUSSELS24 

 

In Retford, Cumbria and Oxford, born and raised, 
On the playground where we spent most of our days, 
Chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool, 
And all shooting some b-ball outside of the school, 
When a couple of guys, they were up to no good, 
Started making trouble in my neighbourhood, 
We got in one little fight and our moms got scared, 
And said "You're going on a bloody ridiculously long cycle ride to freakin’ Brussels of all places!"
 

 

We three unfit and unwise men are attempting to cycle from London to Brussels in less than 24 hours... The challenge begins at 1pm on Friday 15th July and (hopefully!) ending at the same time in Brussels on Saturday the 16th...there is no sharing of stages or the '24 hours' being split over a number of days, this has to be done in one!


We are attempting to raise at least £4,000 in aid of the amazing British Heart Foundation and so would be immensely grateful for your help and support.

 

Please do give generously - however large or small - it all helps towards our target. Plus, the sooner you help our cause, the less harassment you're likely to get by way of annoying pleading emails and messages that clog up your inbox. If you know more than one of us, by all means multiply your donation by two, or even three if you're that way inclined!!!

 

Also, to put your mind at rest, any money that goes towards the logistics and running of the event, and not directly towards the charity, will be donated by us personally. So rest assured that your donations will not be funding our celebrations, they will all be going directly to the BHF.

 

Please do check out the following link to see the tremendously worthwhile cause which we are raising money for.

Many thanks, we really do appreciate all your help!!

(Just hope we survive to repay the favour!)


Henry, Alasdair and Freddy.
