Over the spring bank holiday (Friday 24th May to Wednesday 29th May) Jessie’s Fund will be taking a 22-strong team on our own ‘Tour of Flanders’. Starting from Hull, we’ll take the overnight ferry and land in Zeebrugge the next morning. We’re indebted to Sukhdev Singh, Regional Director of Imperial Commercials DAF/Nissan, Hedon Road, Hull, who gets us off to a good start by allowing us to park our cars, free of charge, on their compound. From Zeebrugge we’ll ride up the coast into the Netherlands and then head inland to the beautiful city of Gent. Day two sees us riding from Gent via some of Flanders route to the town of Ypres (Ieper). The third day is spent riding to Bruges via the coast towns of Dunkirk and Oostende. We’ll have the evening and much of day four to sightsee, until the afternoon, when we’ll make our way to Zeebrugge for the ferry home.
Everyone’s going to have a great time, meeting new friends and setting themselves quite a personal challenge. It won’t be easy, but it will be rewarding. But the main point, of course, will be to raise much needed funds for Jessie’s Fund. The goal is to raise £10,000: Jessie’s Fund founders (Jessie’s parents) are taking part and hoping to raise £2,000 of that. Please help in any way you can: www.justgiving.com/lesleyandalan
