Paul, Clif and Dean are attempting to raise funds for a cause that has touched our lives in recent years.
On the 2nd June last year Dean and his wife Jackie lost their 11 year old son, Jack Smith, to a rare Mitochondrial Disorder. Jack spent a large proportion of his time in Great Ormond Street Hospital and University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire, including the last 3 weeks of his life. Having witnessed the devastating effects of this life limiting disease, the guys and 7 other close and middle aged friends are cycling from London to Paris, starting at Great Ormond Street Hospital on 2nd July 2015 and ending at the Eiffel Tower on 5th July 2015. For the 9 of us taking on this 420km challenge, this is certainly going to take some of the courage Jack showed in his battle against this disease.
All funds raised in conjunction with the London to Paris ride will be donated as “Jacks Gift” to The Lily Foundation, who support families and research associated with Mitochondrial Disorder and its effects.
This is where you come in ! We are asking some of our most respected clients and suppliers to sponsor us on this challenge and help raise funds for this excellent cause. We are trying to raise £10,000 towards this very important support and research into Mitochondrial Disorder.

We very much hope that you are able to support us in our challenge to try and help those suffering from this life changing disease.
