QS Network News – 107 mile coast to coast cycle aims to raise critical funds for St Luke’s Hospice

stlukes-chopperCycling the 107 mile ‘coast to coast’ route from Ilfracombe to Plymouth is a feat that has been left mostly to lycra-clad professionals, the route is seriously challenging! So imagine our surprise when Lisa Thomas of Neville & Co. told us that a Vicar and a janner are planning to cycle the trail!

Father Richard Silk from St Barts and Phil Reed, husband of Lisa Thomas, will be grabbing their iconic 70s Raleigh Choppers and pedalling for 4 days! The great expedition is of course in aid of St Luke’s Hospice Plymouth, a place in which many families rely on for valuable help during trying times.

The daring duo are hoping that people will rally around them with support for the hospice. Father Richard said: “Two forty something blokes messing around on their choppers may sound fun, but it’s not that easy! These choppers are small for us and so will be quite a challenge. The big challenge is to raise funds for St Luke’s and I hope everyone will support us.” 

You can find more information on donating or sponsoring the ‘fellows’ by visiting their Facebook page.

On March 30th the two crazy cyclists will begin their journey across the windswept coast with the aim of arriving to the Barbican on April 2nd at 1pm! If you know someone who wants to cycle the last leg between Tavistock and Plymouth, or if you’d like to be waiting at the finish line, don’t hesitate to contact Phil’s wife, Lisa Thomas at Neville & Co on 01752 786800.

Along with tidier, more streamlined and more enjoyable workplace environments, we have gained peace of mind – knowing we can count on QuickStore to handle our waste paper and archiving confidentially.”
