Goadsby Duo Make it to Paris in Under 24hours!

Divisional Directors, Gavin Harris and David Hardwick have successfully completed their charity ride from the Southampton branch of Goadsby to Paris in only 24 hours.

Gavin commented, "We are both delighted that we managed to make it the 225miles within the 24 hour deadline, but what is more astonishing is the amount of money that has been raised and support that we have received from our sponsors, the public, our friends and family. We have managed to smash our £3,000 target and are now just shy of £5,000, all of which goes directly to our chosen charity DORSET CANCER CARE".

David added, "Over the last five months we have trained hard, which certainly helped, but we both strongly believe that the sponsorship money raised spurred us on to complete the ride! The challenges we faced included a late night ride along the seafront from Brighton to Newhaven port, a 5:30am very cold start in France and some very large hills to climb leading up to Paris. Not even mentioning the busy ride through Paris city centre!"

Goadsby, Gavin and David, would like to thank all of the support received throughout this event. Donations can still be made at  https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/goadsby24hrcharityridetoparis
