Churchfields Care Home owners cycle to Paris

Owners of Churchfields Care Home have raised money for Bloodwise, a charity who funds world-class research in blood cancer, by cycling the 500km from London to Paris as their supportive residents watched on.  

Jane and Gerry Roberts, embarked on their recent journey, departing from London as they biked their way towards Paris, travelling via Folkestone, where they made the voyage across the channel. They then made their way to Abbeville, Beauvais, and finally on to Paris, with the ride taking four days. 

As the duo continued on their journey, residents at the home kept track of their progress, using a board to monitor their locations. Each day, Gerry and Jane would send new photographs of different landmark’s they’d reached, giving the Churchfields community an opportunity to share in the experience. Jane and Gerry, with friends, helped raise a staggering £15,000.

Jane Roberts commented; “We care for so many people who have been, or are currently battling different forms of cancer. It was wonderful to have the opportunity to raise the profile of this incredibly important charity and to help contribute donations towards much needed and ongoing research.”Churchfields Care Home owners on their bikes in Paris

Continuing, she added; “The support of our residents has been incredibly important to both Gerry and I, and has been a strong source of inspiration through the more challenging sections of the ride. We’re glad it’s also given them a fantastic chance to relive some of their fondest memories, and for others, a chance to see parts of the world they’ve never had a glimpse of before.”  

The event as a whole featured 160 riders, all raising a grand total of £500,000 for blood cancer research. Cancer of the blood is the 3rdbiggest ‘cancer killer’ and is the 5thmost common amongst cancer sufferers making research into the disease all the more important.
