Allison Held – London to Paris British Legion Cycle Ride

Many who came to the Wakes event in June recall that Allison had a tombola stall raising funds towards her target of raising £1000 by cycling from London to Paris to raise funds for the Royal British Legion.

We are delighted to report that Allison has completed her ride and to date has raised in the region of £1200.

The route started at Eltham in London, crossed the channel and then from Dunkirk to Abbeville, Beavais and then Paris.

Allison said ‘Thank you to everyone who has helped me to raise £1200’ she added ‘Every village we passed through gave us such a warm welcome. The whole experience was amazing, so much so that I have decided to fund raise again by signing up for the Ride to Ypres next June’

Its not too late to sponsor her if you want to. To do so click the link here:

A big well done to Allison for this most worthy of causes.
