Hello everyone,

 

 

Thank you for voting and helping us to decide which charity we should support. I'm pleased to announce that the winner is Great Ormond Street Children Hospital, with 20.6% of the 34 votes cast.

We will be soon sharing our Just Giving page with you. As you may know, we will be cycling our socks off up and down hills and along winding mountain roads for 3 days to raise money for charity. It will be a journey of 360km around Catalonia in Spain in September this year.

We will keep you posted about our adventures.

 

Thank you very much for your support,

Hello everyone,

 

We have some exciting charitable news from the gaff… A bunch of us enthusiastic peeps here are planning to cycle 360km around Catalonia in Spain in September this year.

 

We’ll be cycling our socks off up and down hills and along winding mountain roads for 3 days to raise money for charity. We’ll be climbing a total of 6148m - eeekk.

 

We now just need a little help from you, our lovely members, to choose the charity that we support with the proceeds of our challenge.

 

We’ve created a Google Form for you to vote, and the charity with the most votes will receive all the money we raise. Voting is open until Tuesday 6th June 2017 at 5 pm - so, get voting now Smiley Happy And if you want to learn more about any of the charities listed, I’ve popped all their website addresses at the bottom of this post so you can take a look at all the amazing work they do.

 

(This bike ride and charity selection is unrelated to our normal 6 monthly Payback charity selection and donations, voting for which will start soon).

 

 

 

Thanks in advance you lovely lot.

It sounds a great challenge. Just sorry I cannot vote as I don't have a Google account.
