A toy industry team, the majority of whom are Fence Club members, is to embark on a 300km London-to-Paris cycle challenge.
Starting from Excel London on the 28th June the team, comprising of Robert Mann (pictured), Kevin Jones, Steve Dawkins, Phil Hooper, Phil Green, Roddy Bridges, Mary Wood and Steve Wilks, supported by Dennis McMullen and James Mann, will arrive in Paris at the Eiffel Tower on the 30th June.
The three-day cycle challenge will raise funds for The Fence Club, with all monies being donated to children’s charities throughout the UK and Ireland.
The route the team will follow is called the ‘Avenue Verte’ or ‘Greenway’, created as a joint Anglo-French initiative to develop a largely traffic-free route between Paris and London. When the London 2012 Olympics begin, the route will be officially opened, and a team of Olympic athletes will cycle from Paris to London.
You can help support this event by sending a donation to: Peter Brennan, Brook Barn House, Papworth St Agnes, Cambs, CB23 3QU.
Cheques should be made out to ‘The Fence Club’. Please indicate with your donation that you are a UK Tax Payer along with your name address and confirmation that the donation qualifies for Gift Aid.
