Tour de Pedro 2015

Screen Shot 2015 07 22 at 17.33.49It's no secret that Peter was a gregarious, vital individual who lived life to the full. He was always on the move, visiting friends and family and maximising the value of his East Coast Trains Gold Card through many happy hours spent in transit between Bognor Regis and Skegness.

But where did Peter live during the various stages of his life? In August 2015 a small group of his school friends are cycling nearly 600 miles over nine days to pay homage to the towns, cities and other places that were so important to Peter and those of us that were lucky enough to know him. The route will take us from Eastbourne (where he went to school) up to Bromley (his home), across to Oxford (where he studied for a Masters), on up to Leeds (the University years) and then back down to the Emirates stadium in London (where he regularly watched Arsenal bang in a goal or two) to finish.

It will be a hard slog for this group of committed, albeit amateurish, cyclists. But we are very fortunate to have the time and opportunity to take on this challenge and, in recognition of this, we would like to raise as much money as possible for the nominated PWMT charity, The Carers Trust. This organisation supports people who care for others, so that they are able to pursue their own goals. Peter was always a positive and supportive influence on those around him and so we are proud to support a charity that seeks to improve lives and ensure that selflessness does not go unrecognised.
