In the saddle for 100-mile challenge
A businessman is taking part in a challenge in which he will get on his for a bike for charity.
Clive Gawler, the founder and managing director of Red Alert and Red Alert Telecare in Ashford, is cycling 100 miles on Sunday (July 30) as part of the Prudential 100, in order to raise money for the Anthony Nolan blood cancer charity.
Mr Gawler, who is aiming to raise £3,000, said: “I enjoy the occasional bike ride but this event is quite a challenge. It’s a 100-mile bike ride through London and Surrey in the company of 25,000 other riders.”
Mr Gawler will begin his ride at the Olympic Stadium in East London, and then go through central London and 70 miles of Surrey countryside before a finish on The Mall.
Mr Gawler said that he was inspired to join the ride by Alice Byron, the daughter of a family friend, who died of a blood disease at the age of 21.
