Nick Peniston-Bird and Dean Vince are cycling from Worthing to Paris on August 25th to raise money for Ernest Kleinwort Court, a centre for people with complex physical disabilities in Burgess Hill run by The Disabilities Trust.
The epic ride covers 320 miles over four days and will take them from Worthing to Dieppe then on to Paris; returning on the same route back to Worthing.
Nick’s involvement with the centre came about when he started supplying indoor activities to them about three years ago. He is very popular with the people who live there; they really enjoy his sense of humour and zest for life.
Nick explains why he and Dean want to raise money for Ernest Kleinwort Court: “Over the years of coming to the centre I have made very good friends with the people who live here and the staff, so we really wanted to do this bike ride to raise as much money as possible for everyone who uses the centre.
"This is a very worthwhile cause and very close to our hearts. Any donations will be most gratefully received.”
Karen Perrin, the centre’s Manager is very grateful to Nick and Dean “There are always things that we want to fundraise for. At the moment we are considering a number of projects, including additions to our sensory room and garden. We are so delighted that Nick and Dean are taking on this huge challenge for us and wish them the very best of luck.”
You can help Nick and Dean raise money for this great cause by donating directly to their JustGiving page. JustGiving sends your donation straight to The Disabilities Trust and automatically reclaims Gift Aid if you are a UK taxpayer, so your donation is worth even more.
