Student charity cycle to France

Congratulations to sisters Ashmi, year 9, and Elina, year 7, who completed an incredible 440km fundraising bike ride from London to Paris this summer. Their cause is the charity Housing for Women, which works across London to empower vulnerable women through providing safe homes and services. 

Ashmi writes: 
"If anyone was to tell me that I was going to cycle to Paris four months ago, I would have laughed. Cycling out of London proved to be a real challenge owing to the unmerciful sun and countless number of long-looming hills. Despite punctures and midge attacks, we relished cycling through France’s eerily quiet Vexin region with its imposing churches, rustic villages, and charming castles, all dispersed in this beautiful countryside. It was like cycling through the medieval times."   

Please consider donating to their important cause.
