Well, there are some great photos arriving on Twitter from the cycling foursome, all looking rather dashing in their cycling shirts with our lovely charity logo on them. Way to go guys.
Head on over to @richbamford81 to see how they are getting on. Keep going guys, you are nearly there.
A huge thank you to @JuggsLewes (what a great name!) on the way to Newhaven who gave our intrepid four a discount on their meal because they were cycling for charity. Now that is what we call
generous, thank @JuggsLewes.

We are thrilled and delighted to inform you that Consultant Colorectal Surgeon, Richard Bamford, who works at Our local District General Hospital, Musgrove Park Hospital, is undertaking a sponsored cycle ride from London to Paris this weekend, with three intrepid friends in aid of our very own charity. This is quite some feat and something they have been preparing for over the last few months. Richard was aiming to raise £1000 and has set up a just giving page for donations. To date he has raised just over the target but is still looking for sponsorship. The ride starts on 6th September 2019, so there is still time to sponsor the four riders. Please head over to the Justgiving.com website and search for Richard Bamford if you wish to help him and his team attain their goals. There are 300 Kilometres to cover before they arrive in Paris, no doubt weary and maybe a tad saddle sore.
We are truly grateful for the time and effort that you are dedicating to this ride for us, so please accept our heartfelt thanks Richard, along with your friends Paul Smith, Dan Stickland & Tom Baker.
May the wind be behind you, particularly on the way home.
We expect regular updates and know that you will be presenting evidence of the ride to the group as a guest speaker at our the Annual Autumn Event scheduled for 12th October at Somerset County Cricket Ground - watch this space for more details in the very near future
