Le voyage en France

Le voyage en France

Empica Client Director Laurence Phillips completed a gruelling 320 mile charity bike ride from London to Paris

Part of a 35-strong team made up of staff and suppliers from our clients at DoubleTree by Hilton Cadbury House and Black & White Hospitality, over £54,000 was raised for Action Medical Research for Children - a charity dedicated to improving the health of babies and children.

Taking three and a half days to complete Laurence personally raised £1,430.

Setting off early from Crystal Palace on Wednesday 19 July, the team pedalled their way through Kent towards Dover.

After a ferry trip they then stayed in Calais before heading down to Arras on day two. Day three saw the team ride through the Somme towards Compiegne and included a visit to the World War One memorial at Thiepval.

The team were then up early to ride into the French capital on Saturday 22 July, passing the Arc de Triomphe, down the Champs Elysee and finishing by the iconic Eiffel Tower.

Thanks to everyone who donated.
