#Paris4Piers: Pulsar & FACE raise £19,000 for Teenage Cancer Trust

If you follow our blog or social media channels, you may have noticed that over the past nine months we’ve been raising money for Teenage Cancer Trust, in memory of our friend and colleague Piers Leonard.

#Paris4Piers finish line

On Saturday 24 April, FACE & Pulsar’s team of five completed the London to Paris cycling challenge – and because of their amazing effort and various other activities (bake sales, sweet potato club, raffles and a Pub Quiz)…

…we raised £19,231 for Teenage Cancer Trust!

When the campaign kicked off, the target was £7,500, which we thought would be a realistic goal. But, due to an overwhelming amount of support we have more than doubled the target! 

We want to say a massive thank you to everyone who donated – your generosity has taken this challenge beyond anything we ever imagined it would be. We couldn’t be more proud of the #Paris4Piers team and everyone’s efforts at FACE & Pulsar.

If you’ve followed us on this journey, we thought it’d be nice to show you the highlights from the London to Paris trip. Click on the image below to see the full gallery:

We haven’t closed our donation page just yet – we’re keeping it open until 15th May. So! If you’ve been inspired by the #Paris4Piers cyclists and have some cash to spare, please go visit the JustGiving page – every penny helps.
