London to Brighton
Two colleagues from Specsavers Hove have got on their bike for charity to raise vital funds for The British Heart Foundation.
For the second year running Charles Forshaw, store director at Specsavers in Hove, completed this year’s London to Brighton charity bike ride alongside store manager Adam Fuller, raising over £100 for the charity.
41 years and 54 miles
Launched in 1976, London to Brighton is the oldest charity cycle ride in Europe, and has grown from just 36 participants in its first year to over 15,000 cyclists in 2016. The amateur cyclists took on the 54 mile pedal that began at Clapham Common and ended at Madeira Drive in Brighton, while raising money for the British Heart Foundation.
Adam said: ‘The London to Brighton ride was a great way to raise money for a fantastic charity. We would like to thank the friends, family and colleagues for their generosity and for supporting myself and Charles’s marathon cycle.
'Their donations will help to support the important work the British Heart Foundation does’.
