£1,000 donation from Ride London team

We had a £1000 donation from “the Fairy Queen Dream Team”, who completed the RideLondon-Surrey 100 cycling event today. The team was headed up by James, father of Ella who has WAGR/11p Deletion Syndrome. They were primarily raising funds for Cells For Sight research at Moorfields Eye Hospital but gave us this very generous donation.

The event “follows a 100-mile route on closed roads through the capital and into Surrey’s stunning countryside. With leg-testing climbs and a route made famous by the world’s best cyclists at the London 2012 Olympics, it’s a truly spectacular event for all involved.”

Thanks to all of the team, Moorfields and to James and wife Elly in particular for their efforts and generosity.

Keep rolling
