Jayne, Colin and Joanna are dusting off their cycling shoes!

They will resume their Lands End to John o’ Groats Cycle Ride at the beginning of August to raise funds for Penhaligon’s Friends.

So far they have been interrupted by injury and the pandemic, so we hope the final leg goes smoothly and we just can’t wait to see their photos at the finish.

They have raised a fabulous £2,000 so far and hope to raise more on their final leg. Their Just Giving page is here


Thank you Jayne, Colin and Joanna ❤️
