Well done to Ken, Sam, Ant and Jon for completing their London to Paris Challenge                                                                                                                                                                     18 August 2014

"Well it all started a couple of months back when myself and Jon, were talking about the Tour de France. This then led on, over a couple of beers, to 'we should do our own tour', and London to Paris sounded like a great idea.

This then grew from me and Jon to 4 of us. Myself, Sam, Ant and Jon. So in Aug this year we will be riding from the London Eye to Notre Dame in Paris.

We have decided to do this as a charity ride to make it more than just good fun.

We have chosen to do this for 2 Charities. The first is:
Weston Park in Sheffield which is a Specialist Cancer Hospital, where both my Granddad and Jon's Nan both received end of life Care. Both of our experiences with the Hospital were fantastic and we feel that if every family and patient can receive the level of care we did, that it is a worthy cause.

Weston Park Hospital is 1 of only 4 dedicated cancer hospitals in the country, and as such patients come from all over the country for specialist treatments.

The second Charity is Mental Health Research UK. Last year Sam's Uncle Ian, lost his fight against the mental health battle.

Mental Health Research UK is the first charity dedicated to raising funds for research into the causes of mental illnesses in order to develop more effective treatments with fewer side-effects. Although some of the well-established mental health charities fund a small amount of research into the causes of mental illness, their main focus is helping those who are afflicted now. MHRUK wants to change things for future generations - and make a difference in the long-term.

Every year 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem so the research they are doing will help millions of people in the UK alone."

Well done Ken, Sam, Ant & jon and thank you - Mental Health Research UK
