Well we have cycled from London to Paris and raised over £8,200 for the St. Elizabeth Hospice. The weather was gruelling and the hills were certainly a lot bigger than the Suffolk undulations. Exhausted now, but elated that we have done it.
In keeping with Jane Billing’s tireless fundraising for many charities, Jane has now signed up to do the London to Paris Cycle Ride for the St. Elizabeth Hospice in September 2015. Also known as the #HospiceTeam100
Gillian Boyle (Artist and Jane’s sister-in-law) and Jane have agreed to cycle 300 miles in just 4 days for the St. Elizabeth Hospice. Paddy (Gillian and Jane’s father-in-law) passed away in the hospice 2 years ago. Paddy was well looked after during his time there. It was such a lovely environment and the staff were great too. So when Gillian suggested they enter the ‘Cycle ride’ it was a way of saying thank you for looking after Paddy so well.
There is a Justgiving site if you wish to push Gillian and Jane’s training along and eventually this enormous challenge.
Also, there is a way of sponsoring the girls’ shirts. As it is 4 days of cycling, the girls will have a shirt a day. We figure that there is space for 8-10 logos that could be printed on the back of each shirt. So in order to SPONSOR OUR SHIRT, please call Jane at Billie Box on 0800 121 7388 or 01473 557409.
We would like to thank the following sponsors so far:
Jane is cycling every week and so far, since January 2015, she has cycled 1,171 miles, some 50 cycle rides. The longest Jane has done is 60 miles in 4 hours 37 mins. Looking forward to doing more and getting faster.
