Three wonderful colleagues from Wickes cycled from London to Paris, and a bit further...

As our wonderful partnership with Wickes contuniues to go from strength to strength three Wickes colleagues have decided to join our 500 km London to Paris cycle ride.

Anil Pindoria from Wembley, North London, Trevor Jackson from Rayleigh, Essex, and James Degiorgio from Heybridge Basin, near Maldon, are aiming to raise a combined total of £8,000 to help us beat blood cancer through research, campaigning, and raising money.

Anil Pindoria, Assistant Category Supply Manager at the Wickes Support Centre in Watford is not only cycling from London to Paris, but is cycling from Paris to London beforehand, too. He will spend seven days cycling 1,000km to raise money for Bloodwise on behalf of Wickes. This will be his third cycle to Paris. Donate to Anil's page here.

Trevor, a Store Manager at Wickes Braintree, has taken part in cycling challenges to raise money for charity since he took part in the Wickes’ Big 10 cycle challenge in 2012. He then signed up for Bloodwise’s London to Paris ride that June without a second thought. He weighed 17.5 stone and was determined to get in good shape for the ride in 2013, so invested in a training plan and diet change that was to have a huge impact on his life. Donate to Trevor's page here.

James, a Store Manager at Wickes Harlow, has been heavily involved in fundraising for the charity for the past six years, and has been on the Wickes Charity committee for four years. He has organised and taken part in many challenges for his team, all with the aim of raising money. Donate to James' page here.

We hope you'll join us in wishing our Wickes riders good luck!
