David Wingate, Partner at WE Solicitors LLP, a longstanding Bronze Sponsor of Mesothelioma UK, will be cycling from London to Paris on 6th September 2014 in support of Mesothelioma UK. That’s 273 miles in 24 hours.

David has upped his training considerably over the past three months in preparation for the event. He commented “I have covered enough training miles since June to have cycled from Manchester to Moscow, that’s 2000 miles! The toughest part of a long training ride is beating the boredom.”

“Long distance cycling at an event with other rides and spectators to spur you on is much more enjoyable. With 4 days to go until the start of the ride I have a mixture of excitement and fear as to the challenge ahead”.

“I set myself a target to raise at least £1,000 in support of the great work done by Mesothelioma UK. I am delighted to say I have beaten that and am on course to raise nearly £2,000.”

“There is still time to sponsor me which can be done via my just giving page https://www.justgiving.com/David-Wingate1/

“I hope the funds raised will be a valuable contribution to the amazing work done by Mesothelioma UK striving to ensure that all mesothelioma sufferers will have access to the specialist nursing care and support they need.”
