Pru Peloton: Advisers go the extra mile for GOSH
23 July 2018
Fifty people of mixed cycling ability, including six advisers and paraplanners, are geared up to take part in the world’s biggest festival of cycling, Prudential RideLondon, as part of the ‘Pru Peloton’.
Prudential RideLondon is the most well-known and successful legacy event from the London 2012 Olympics and since it started in 2013, participants have raised over £53million for charity.
The Pru Peloton, coached by double Olympic champion and Yellow Jersey leader of this year’s Tour de France Geraint Thomas, are taking part in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100. They will use the 100 mile challenge to raise money for the event’s official charity for 2018, Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).
The six members of the Pru Peloton from the financial adviser industry are:
- Adam Bell
- Chris Strut
- Jeff McEniry
- Simon Spooner
- Mark Connery
- Hannah Stone
All of the money raised by the Pru Peloton will help fund family accommodation at GOSH which enables parents and carers to stay close by while their child is in hospital.
Radio interviews via ISDN or various smartphone apps can be arranged on request.
