Today, our lad James Pegrum, along with team mates Huw Millington of Brickset, Ed Diment of Bright Bricks and Ralph Doering of massive Star Wars mosaic making fame, set off on their massive 1,000 km cycle ride from the flagship LEGO store in Leicester Square, London, to the LEGO ,House in Billund, Denmark.
The lads are undertaking this feat to raise £20,000 for Fairy Bricks (registered charity 1161639) , who have one very simple objective. To give LEGO to children in hospital.
James will be providing regular updates on the ride, so here's his first installment:
"It's been good, so we've done 83 miles in just over 5 hours. We left around 9am and got to Harwich around twenty past four. Had a break at Woodford, at my mum and dad's and then lunch North Chelmsford. Storm Ali has been on our side, hitting us with a bit of rain. On the way, Broomfield, Chelmsford and Colchester general hospitals have had drop offs of LEGO from Fly and Kev."
Next up is the ferry across the channel!
You can still support the team by making 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.
