On 7th July, fifty-two cyclists set off from London City Airport for a 185-mile bike ride to Amsterdam in an incredible fundraising effort to raise £30,000 for Richard House.
This is the fourth annual bike ride organised by the airport, which is a longstanding Richard House supporter, and this year was their most successful year yet with more employees than ever before getting involved to mark the airport’s 30th anniversary.
The group of cyclists included a wide range of London City Airport employees, and airport based staff, who were joined by Declan Collier,CEO of London City Airport and Stephen Timms, MP for East Ham, who is also a Richard House Patron said
‘Richard House has done a tremendous job in caring for children and providing support for their families since it opened in 2000. And London City Airport – which stands just a few hundred yards from Richard House – has been a long-term supporter of the hospice’
The airport has maintained longstanding support for Richard House Children’s Hospice, raising a close to £900,000 since it first began fundraising initiatives over two decades ago.
A huge thank you for the fantastic effort and enthusiasm of all who took part!
