My story

[p]At some point in last year's BBQ season I agreed to support two local charities and a friend who's organised this great event by getting on a bike. Having never really cycled since leaving school I think I may have been more well oiled then my bike chain but it turns out it's actually quite fun once you get over wearing lycra in public. By donating to my page, you will help with some additional funds for these great causes and of course my motivation to get to Paris. Thank you for your donations.[/p][p]Over the course of June 23rd-24th 2017 thirty parents, supporters and friends will embark on the challenge to each cover over 320km (in the saddle) from Trinity Primary School in Henley-on-Thames to the Eiffel Tower, Paris.[/p] [p] The team will first ride to Newhaven to catch the ferry to Dieppe. After a (very) short rest crossing the Channel we will be quickly back on the bikes with the long ride to Paris and the Eiffel Tower in our sights.  [/p] [p] [b]The sponsorship raised will help to both fund improvements to the learning environment at Trinity as well as supporting the Chiltern Centre - an award winning charity that gives disabled children and young people the chance to get the most out of life, as well as practical support to parents and families caring for a disabled child.[/b][/p] [p] We are tremendously grateful for any contribution you may offer to help motivate our riders and support these two great charities to continue such wonderful work in the community.[/p] [p] Thank you.[/p][p][/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me 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. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
