Cycling From London to Paris for Charity

If you are familiar with my blog you may already know that I do quite a lot of fundraising for the charity Sands. Now I say 'do' but if I am honest for the past year my fundraising activities haven't really been as much as I would have liked due to personal reasons. As this month is Isabella's 6th angelversary I am going to make an effort to fundraise more in both Isabella's and Rosie's memory and so is Daddy.


Daddy has already signed himself up for a charity bike ride which will take place in March. He will cycle the distance between London and Paris with a team of colleagues.

All funds raised will go directly to the charity Sands. You may not of heard of Sands so I will give you a quick overview of what they do. Sands (stillborn and neonatal death) are based in the UK and they support and help families after the loss of a baby. They help to promote research in to why so many babies die each day either through stillbirth or shortly after being born.

When we lost Isabella in March 2010 and Rosie in October 2010 - 17 babies died every day in the UK. I hadn't heard of Sands before Isabella and to be honest I hadn't really heard of stillbirths either so having the support of Sands really helped me through the early days and helped me realise I wasn't alone.

So I have had a quick google and the distance is approx 340km which is massive so I do wish them all the best of luck. If you can spare a few moments to share or tweet this post I would appreciate it as we are trying raise as much money as possible.

If you do wish to donate please put Good Luck John on the donation comments.
