Cyclists cross the Finish Line!
This year we were absolutely delighted to have four cyclists taking part in the 100 mile cycle from the middle of London into the beautiful Surrey Hills and the famous slopes of Box Hill – mean feat!
Representing Delamere Dairy, long time supporter of Kids for Kids, Alan and Stuart took on this weekend’s cycle and have raised £2,000 (so far!) that will go directly to Darfur! “It was so much better in the dry this year – last year I was soaked to the skin before crossing the starting line!” said Stuart. “The better weather meant both Leith Hill and Box Hill were fully open, so we completed the full 100 miles. We told other riders and spectators about Kids for Kids whenever we could. All the best!”
Newer supporters of Kids for Kids, Julian Taylor and his daughter Sophia also took on the Prudential cycle and thoroughly enjoyed it. “Thank you to Kids for Kids for the chance to ride. It was an amazing experience and made all the better by knowing that we were raising money that will help to make life more sustainable for some of the most disadvantaged children in the world,” said Julian. Julian has written all about his experience preparing for this challenge and then taking part. It is sure to inspire you – read here!
“I am beyond grateful!” said Patricia Parker MBE, Founder and CEO. “All our riders have been absolutely brilliant in raising funds for Kids for Kids and they did a fantastic job in their cycle. It means so much to us to have people take on such an intense challenge, knowing they are helping children with so little in Darfur.”
We are so grateful to these cyclists for their hard work training and fundraising in advance of the event. There is still time to support them via their fundraising pages. Anything you donate will go straight to Darfur.
