Finally a big thank you to everyone who has sponsored me over the last 2 days to cycle from London to Paris next month (along with 49 other cyclists!).  We have raised over £207!!!  It will all be going to Hope and Play, a charity that supports children in Palestine.  There is always room for more sponsorship if you are feeling generous....
