Matt Loughrey has pounded thousands of roads cycling to raise almost £100,000 for CLIC Sargent in memory of his daughter Emily who died of cancer in 2007.
In his latest venture, Matt and three friends’ cycled from Chatham in Kent to Hameln, in Germany – a whopping 520 miles!
On reaching their destination, the four were welcomed by a piper and guard of honour. It was a very emotional experience after being subjected to a massive thunder storm in Ypres, paying their respects to the fallen in Tyne Cot Cemetery, cycling cobbled roads in Belgium, and on multiple occasions getting lost finding their camp sites along their journey!
Matt Loughrey said: “It has been a very worthwhile cycle ride. We have come so close to our target figure of £100,000, at present we are just short of £98,500. I am sure we will get there within the next year!”
Fundraising Manager Hannah says “Huge congratulations and thanks must go the riders and not forgetting their support driver Mark Jordon who drove the minibus which was generously donated by REGAL Van Hire.”
