Richard's Fundraising Story

It's been a while since I've undertaken a challenge to raise money for a worthy cause, so I'm hoping you can spare a few minutes (& pennies) for the Parkinson's charity I have decided to support this time.  The reason for my choice is that my Aunt, who died earlier this year, was a long time sufferer.

The challenge this time involves joining a group of friends and cycling from London (Marble Arch) to Paris (Arc de Triomphe) ... a distance of somewhere between 250 and 300 miles (depending on the route we eventually take and the number of wrong turns!) ... in under 24 hours ... and, for me, with much less training than usual.

You can sponsor me through Virgin Money Giving.  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.
