I am undertaking a virtual bike ride from the Volunteer Centre Swindon's office in the centre of Swindon to finish at the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. I will set off on VE Day, 8 May 2020 and aim to arrive on, or before, 14 July 2020 which is Bastille Day in France.
Why am I doing this you may well ask? I love visiting France and it looks like I won't be visiting any time soon. It will be a personal challenge to undertake the distance of over 600 kilometres and hopefully lose the odd pound or two (and gain a few of yours for a great cause!) en route.
All funds raised will help replace the Volunteer Centre Swindon's income lost due to Covid-19. Volunteer Centre Swindon does not receive either government or local authority funding and is entirely reliant on grants and donations. It is really important that local charities and groups have somewhere that can provide guidance and support in recruiting and managing their volunteers and people have support in finding the right volunteering role for them.
I will be updating this page on a regular basis with details of progress and some of the interesting places I will "pass" through on my journey.
Thank you for reading, and for any donations however big or small.
