Four day cycle from London to Paris in aid of Wirral Hospice St John’s

Collette Morris, Executive Assistant to the CEO at CPL Training Group, will cycle over 300-miles in four days from London to Paris, in aid of Wirral Hospice St John’s. She is taking on the challenge in remembrance of her loving mum, Sue, who sadly passed away in the care of the Clatterbridge-based facility.

The Skyline London to Paris Tour de France Cycle 2016 takes place from 20th-24th July. Collette, who signed up for the challenge in July last year, has been training hard for the past nine months and hopes to raise over £2,000.

Day one of the route starts in Crystal Palace and heads south through the rural roads of Kent – eventually concluding at the port of Dover. After arriving in Calais via the Channel ferry, the following days cover over 200-miles through medieval towns and villages, with two stops at Abbeville and Beauvais. The final day of cycling is dominated by the looming cityscape of Paris – Eiffel Tower in plain sight.

Collette, who is from Wallasey, said: “When I saw the opportunity to take part and raise some money for Wirral Hospice St John’s, I decided it was something that I had to do.”

She added: “During the four-month period between her diagnosis and passing, mum spent most of her time in the care of St John’s Hospice. In the simplest terms, they gave us peace of mind knowing mum was getting the best car she possibly could, and in a place where she felt safe and could have her loved ones around her.”

Wirral Hospice St John’s is a specialist facility that provides free care and support to patients with life-limiting illnesses. The hospice costs approximately £3.5m a year to run, with the majority of funding coming from local individuals, companies, community groups and charitable trusts.
