I'm cycling from London to Paris to raise money for Your Sanctuary, a charity that supports survivors of domestic abuse in the Woking Area.

Your Sanctuary offer support and empowerment to anyone affected by domestic abuse. One woman said, 

"I didn't think anybody could help me but when I spoke to the woman on the helpline she helped me understand that there is help and support out there."

We should stand up against domestic abuse and give anybody the chance to survive, floruish and live with out fear.

As a church community we have seen the wondeful work that Your Sanctuary does in Woking and as a local charity they are always in need of financial support to provide the care for survivors. While as a man I can't actually be physically involved in their work, I can support by heloing to raise funds that keep the helpline, refugee, pay for staff and other superb initiatives going.  

Event details

London to Paris Cycle Ride (plus some running)

On March 10th I'm running the Surrey half-Marathon, then in May I'm running a Maverick Surrey Hills 13km run. This is all the warm up to the big adventure of cycling from London (well Croydon) to Paris.

If you know me cycling isn't something I do, so this is a whole new discipline for me, so should be quite a journey. I'll be starting on Wednsday 5th June and will hopefully be arriving in Paris on Sunday 9th June. Not long to ride quite a long way. 

I thought this would be apt as the probable difficulty of this journey is nothing compared to journey that many women (& men) make as they escape terrible situations and seek to rebuild new lives away from domestic abuse. So please do give generously.
