Team story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting our page.[/p][p]Having gone through a successful ablation to correct a heart arrhythmia last summer at Harefield Hospital I decided to give myself a challenge as a focus to improve my fitness.  This was initially to cycle to Paris, however it has since been added to by gaining a place in the RideLondon 100.  [/p][p]While I believe if there is a need and one is able to give then we should, rather than having to do something for it, however,as I am doing something (principally for my own benefit) I would like two charities to benefit from donations from those who are willing. [/p][p]My kids obviously thought I was insane and aim to accompany me to Paris (whether on bikes or not remains to be seen!).  So following much negotiation with them the ride from London to Paris is scheduled for August 23rd - 26th, two weeks after RideLondon (Aug 10). My supportive wife Abi is providing backup principally as  driver![/p][p]This is being funded by ourselves (through God's good grace in providing for us), so all funds will benefit the two charities. These are the British Heart Foundation and the Arrhythmia Alliance.[/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p][p]Many thanks[/p][p]Andy, Ab, Sam, Joe and Beth[/p]
