Charity Supporter cycles 100 miles to raise funds for Helena Kennedy Foundation
On 30th July, Jim Iley from Milton Keynes cycled 100 miles as part of Celebrating the legacy for cycling created by the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100.
The course certainly tested Jim's stamina and strength with leg-testing climbs. The route started from the Queen Elizabeth Park in East London and went through the City of London, into Surrey's beautiful contryside. The RideLondon finished on the Mall in Central London.
Jim raised just over £1000 for the charity. The funds raised will help students for whom many the Foundation is a lifeline for their journey from Further Education into Higher Education.
The charity is incredibly grateful for Jim's effort and support. Dr Ann G Limb, Chair & Founder of the charity said "Jim has raised a wonderful amount for the charity, it will help our students who are over coming many barriers one of them being financial. A huge thanks to Jim for undertaking this challenge for us".
The Foundation provides bursaries, mentoring and support to disadvantaged students helping them progress from further to higher education. To make further donations please visit Jim's page
