MEGA MASSIVE CHARITY BIKE RIDE KLAXON!
At the end of September, our lad James Pegrum, along with three other luminaries of the LEGO world, will be embarking on a 1,000 km cycle ride from the flagship LEGO store in Leicester Square, London, to the LEGO House in Billund, Denmark. They will do it in seven-and-a-half days, to raise money for our favourite charity, Fairy Bricks.
Since the New Year, James has been racking up the miles in preparation by cycling across as much of Devon as he possibly can. He has form for long distance bike rides, having completed the epic 1,400 km John o’ Groats to Land’s End ride some 20 years ago. He is however, now keen to point out that the intervening years have taken their toll, and that the Billund trip is likely to be his most challenging ever!
James’ team mates are Huw Millington of Brickset, Ed Diment of Bright Bricks and Ralph Doering of massive Star Wars mosaic making fame. They will be supported by Kev Gascoigne and Fly Tipping of Fairy Bricks.
The team will be departing the LEGO Store in Leicester Square at 08:30, Thursday September 20th and aim to arrive in Billund at 11:00 Thursday September 27th.
The purpose of the ride is to raise money for Fairy Bricks (registered charity 1161639) , who have one very simple objective. To give LEGO to children in hospital.
The team hope their efforts and your sponsorship will enable Fairy Bricks to support more children, in more hospitals than ever before. Please make a donation on the event's fundraising page, or via Paypal if you have problems doing so.
Your donation will mean the world to Fairy Bricks, and of course will go directly towards getting our beloved bricks into the hands of sick children in hospitals and hospices around the world.
