Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

On 14 to 17 June 2012, I took part in the Football League Arch to Arc bike ride raising money for Help the Hospices. This challenging three-day bike ride started at Wembley Stadium and finished at the Arc de Triomphe, Paris.

After 3 days, 260 miles, a torrential downpour on the second day, coincidentally my 17th birthday, and cycling around the Arc de Triomphe itself a few times (it is probably the busiest roundabout in Europe) I finally made it to Paris and it was truly one of the most amazing experiences of my life.

Even though the ride is over, the fundraising still continues and between the group we need to raise £50,000 which will help hospices all around the UK.

Anything you can donate is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for all your Support
