An Olympic bike ride for Brussels and Hackney 26-27 July 2012
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 http://www.parlement-donateurs.org/Parlement_New.htm/contact_F.htm
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. http://www.hwns.org.uk/construction/
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.
