London, Amsterdam, Brussels, Manchester - clever ladies

Congratulations to Jacqui Moore, Mel Plehov and Eve Joseph on their fantastic achievements in tremendous fundraising for such worthy charities.

The Three Cities Cycle Challenge: 340 miles across Europe took commitment, hard work and great determination.

Jacqui's cycle challenge was to raise money for The Daylight Centre - an independent, local charity based in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire which provides friendship and support for adults in need. The Mission of the Daylight Centre is to offer time, space and practical guidance to people which enables them to tackle the problems that limit their quality of life. Please take a moment to click on the link to see what valuable work they do.

Jacqui says: "337 miles ridden, 26 hours and 45 minutes in the saddle, 3 countries conquered, gorgeous weather, great friends made, lots of beer and cider consumed, far too many carbs eaten, a brilliant crew and a fab route (well done Sky Line!). Despite numerous injuries and pain, we spent every single metre of this journey in the saddle and for this I am immensely proud.

Jacqui raised A WHOPPING
Well Done Jacqui
Mel's (Mis) Adventure was to raise funds for the MS Trust 

Not content with the 3 Cities Challenge with Jacqui, she also decided to undertake the Great Manchester Swim with Eve to boost the funds.

Would you?
Mel's final total for the MS Trust:
So, Mel and Jacqui have, between them, raised a fantastic
£4,059    for two great charities.

Eve (is she mad?), however, is undertaking a triathlon to raise £750  for Medical Detection Dogs  
She will:
1 - Swim in the Great Manchester Swim - in the style of Ian Thorp...

Mel, Eve and Brillo

2 - Walk the Yorkshire 3 Peaks - in the style of Paula Radcliffe...on a rest day! :)

3 - Cycle 100 miles in a day - in the syle of Mark Cavendish

 Wouldn't it be brilliant if the three girls' total could reach £5,000? - watch this space (and eve still needs sponsors)
