London to Paris for The Shakespeare Hospice

On Wednesday 21st-24th June novice and keen cyclists took part in a truly inspirational experience raising money for their favourite charities. Starting in London, covering just over 300 miles and riding through glorious undulating countryside, this 4-day route to Paris is by far one of the best bike rides in Europe!

Terry Brandon a Dad of one of our colleagues took part in memory of his beautiful and loving wife Marie, who after 7 years of fighting cancer lost her battle back in January 2017. The Shakespeare Hospice and their dedicated staff were there for Marie throughout her illness and the Home Care Nurses were the families angels that appeared day and night, not only to look after Marie, but to support the whole family too.

The team of 30 set off on the Wednesday through the rural villages of southern England, passing through the coastal towns of Whitstable and Dover. Then with a short ferry ride to Calais they carried on exploring the glorious rolling greens of Northern France and its traditional market towns on route to the capital by Sunday.
