Story

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. Please dig deep and sponsor me online.

Mencap and EDF Energy's Reims to Paris Bike Ride.

On 22nd September 2005 I will be joining up to 60 of my collegues from across the UK to take part in Reims to Paris bike ride to raise £100,000 for Mencap. Over three days, I will be cycling a total of 200 miles across varied terrain from Reims to Paris. I've started my training programme and having spent a few weekends 'at the handlebars', have discovered that this really is going to be a challenge!

With the support of EDF Energy this year, Mencap is developing an innovative new project called Energise to tackle the issue that people with a learning disability suffer from more health problems than others, not just because of their disability but due a range of factors including communication barriers. Energise will help improve the health and fitness of people with a learning disability by supporting them to take charge of their individual health, diet and fitness needs.

In order to secure my place on the EDF Energy Team, and to support Mencap, I have pledged to raise £1,200. In fact, I'm hoping to smash this target! Can you help? If you are able to make a donation or would like further information then please either give me a call on 01206-756366 or send a cheque made payable to "Mencap Promotions Limited" to me at EDF Energy, 4 Wyncolls Road, Colchester, Essex C04 9HU. Thank you for your generosity Kind regards - Ian C. Pearson Please note - EDF Energy have promised to match individual donations up to £1,000.00, pound for pound. So lets see how much you can make them pay out!!!! In agreeing to ask for Money on behalf of Mencap I have to point out that the cost of me participating in this event will be paid out of the Money Raised. These costs are approximately £490.00 However I have already collected £935 from my collegues at work so these costs have already been met.
