We are sad to say that our two charity fundraisers, Paul Bonett and Jim Stevenson, have been forced to delay the last two weeks of their 1,000 mile cycling challenge, due to a family member of Paul’s being taken ill into hospital.
They had ridden for six days arriving in Edinburgh, when they heard the news and had to make the urgent return to Brighton. Both cyclists are now back home to be with their families at this difficult time.
Paul and Jim were set to cycle from Orkney to Paris this June, with the extra challenge of playing eight rounds of charity golf and teaching Aikido classes along the way. The pair have already raised over £2,100 for First Base Day Centre, which supports people who are homeless and rough sleeping in Brighton and Hove.
We would like to thank them for their fantastic fundraising efforts so far, and our thoughts are with Paul and his family.
We’d also like to thank everyone who has supported them already, your support has been the motivation and purpose of Paul and Jim’s challenge, and will make a great difference to the lives of very vulnerable people.
The pair hope to resume their challenge when circumstances permit.
