Welwyn Hatfield workers cycle from London to Paris for charity
TWO employees of the Royal Veterinary College (RVC), in Brookmans Park, are hoping to raise �3,000 for charity after completing a tough cycling challenge.
Cardiology lecturer Simon Dennis and clinician Rob Goggs joined 600 other cyclists in completing a gruelling four-day ride from London to Paris.
The duo took part in the challenge to raise money for Action Medical Research (AMR), a medical research charity dedicated to treating sick and vulnerable babies and helping children affected by disability.
To date, the pair have collected �2,400 in sponsorship money, but they hope the final sum will be in excess of �3,000.
Simon said: “Both Rob and I are extremely pleased to have completed the cycle ride and raise money for such a worthy cause.

“It was a tough four days, but definitely worth it in the end, as it was an incredible once in a lifetime experience for us both.
“We would like to thank everyone for their donations, but particularly CEVA Animal Health and Boehringer Ingelheim, who were both really generous sponsors.”
