An Olympic bike ride for Brussels and Hackney 26-27 July 2012

by ofthewedge

Dear friends,

On Thursday 26th July, I will mount the saddle and cycle 222 miles from my home in Brussels to  my old homes of Croydon and Hackney. My reward will be a pint of Young’s Special in the Dog and Bull on Surrey Street, in Old Town Croydon.

I would like to invite you to demonstrate your support by donating to two worthy causes based in my points of departure and destination.

Le Parlement des donateurs is a non-political association which runs projects for the relief of poverty in Brussels where 40% of children live in households with no income and over 5000 residents are in a state of extreme poverty

Hackney Night Shelter is a partnership between local churches and registered charity Hackney Doorways which through hundreds of volunteers helps get people off the streets and support them when they find accommodation.

You can donate to these charities directly by following the instructions on the website; if you donate, or you intend to donate, please put a comment on this blog to say so.

Thank you
