On the 29th July 2018, a member of our team, Sara Barry, took part in the Prudential Ride London-Surrey 100, raising money for Epilepsy Action.
As her partner, Matt, has epilepsy, this charity is very close her heart. To read more about their story, visit her JustGiving page here
Sara’s personal overview:
'With glorious weather in the days leading up to the ride, everything was looking very promising…until the torrential rain and thunderstorms began! With the treacherous condition of the roads, and already soaked to the skin before even getting to the start line, I felt very nervous, but was determined to meet Matt at 70-80 miles and finish together – our start times were an hour apart. Amidst the multiple accidents and road closures, I found myself being diverted to do the 46 mile route! Unable to catch up with Matt, I succeeded in finishing the race on my own. It was an emotional but fantastic experience!'
With all the generous support from friends and family, she raised £617.00, which, with Matt’s sponsorship, totalled a fantastic £1200.00!
