Today the Bikes to Billund team entered the first continental day of their trip as they rode through the Netherlands on their epic 1,000km journey to the LEGO House. Our man on the team, James Pegrum, had this to say when asked how things were going:
"Yes another good day. 82 miles, hooked up with two Dutch AFOLs, Lars and Bert, and two hospital drops. Good weather and got to our stop in time, it's now raining and thundering!"*
Way to go James!
The team 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.
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.
For the latest on the ride, follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!
* those needing some translation here should note that 'AFOL' stands for Adult Fan of LEGO and 'hospital drops' is what Fairy Bricks do when the donate LEGO sets to hospitals!
