Supporting cyclist again in £250,000 fundraising challenge

For the second year in a row we supported a cyclist who pedalled from London to Cannes as part of a £250,000 fundraising challenge in aid of Coram, the UK’s oldest children’s charity.

David Lunt, the Executive Director for housing and land at the Greater London Authority, took on the four-day, 900-mile endurance event in March alongside nearly 100 other riders.

Last year the event raised a record £250,000 and this year the contributions from participants and sponsors like David and Linden Homes are expected to exceed that total.

David said: “I am very grateful for Linden Homes' very generous sponsorship of my cycle to Cannes this year; it was a pleasure to have their logo on my jersey. The 900 miles is a daunting task but it really helped to know I was representing such a wonderful array of partners!

“Coram does a fantastic job with vulnerable children, finding them suitable adopted homes and offering long term support to put their lives back on track. The total amount raised for the charity is set to eclipse the £250,000 figures from 2014.”

Linden Homes Group managing director Andrew Richards said: “Congratulations to David for undertaking a really tough challenge in aid of a charity that has done so much good work for so long. We were very proud to add our support again this year.”
